The holy trinity of rum, coconut and pineapple served in a well-balanced, not overly sweet Tiki-style cocktail.
The origins of the Bahama Mama are misty, but it is thought to date back to at least the early 50s. The bartender most associated with this cocktail is Oswald "Slade" Greenslade who was born in the Bahamas and worked at the Nassau Beach Hotel on Cable Beach from 1961 to 1993 where he is said to have discovered this cocktail which was apparently named after a local singer. He then worked at the Banana Boat Club until 1999 and is also the author of a self-published book One More Cocktail.
