White rum is Bacardi’s specialty. Bacardi is the perfect spirit to use as the main ingredient of your cocktail. Be it for a night out on the town or a get-together with your close friends, choosing what type of cocktail to make is of the utmost importance. And having a great mixer so it goes down smoothly is key.
Bacardi tastes great on its own, but drinking liquor straight is only fun for so long. It is a very versatile spirit that opens up several mixing options. This makes the list easy but might make your choice more difficult.
1. Pineapple Juice
Pineapple juice s one of the best mixers for rum. Even as the only mixer in your cocktail, pineapple juice adds to the flavor of Bacardi with a tang and sweetness, making each sip bright and refreshing.
Pineapple juice as a mixer for Bacardi is popular for a reason, as the two pair so well together. Any sting you might sense from the Bacardi is subdued by the sweet and mild tartness of pineapple juice.
2. Club Soda
If you are not too concerned with the best overall taste of a Bacardi cocktail, club soda makes a great mixer. Club soda does not have poor taste, but it may dilute the Bacardi a bit. If you’re not a huge fan of the Bacardi flavor, then this is a great mixer to choose from.
If you have the available ingredients, you can level up a Bacardi and club soda to make a perfectly minty mojito. Simply add lime juice, sugar, and mint leaves, and you might find your new favorite drink.

3. Coconut Cream
Coconut cream is a highly effective complement for several cocktails, though it is not always the first choice as a stand-alone mixer. A cocktail with only Bacardi and coconut cream provides a milky texture and enhances the mild sweetness of the rum to a burst of coconut.
You can also mix Bacardi, coconut cream, and another mixer of your choice from this list. If you add another mixer to the combination, you keep the same flavorful coconut taste while thinning the texture of the cocktail.
4. Orange Juice
Orange juice is perhaps the easiest option for those looking to keep their cocktail simple. Chances are that you have a carton of orange juice in your refrigerator, meaning that you will not have to take an extra trip to the store to get ingredients for your Bacardi mixed drink.
Bacardi mixed with orange juice adds a twist to a traditional Screwdriver with the fresh taste offered by Bacardi rum. This is a great drink for afternoon get-togethers or as a substitute for mimosas to kick off a weekend getaway.
5. Red Wine
You have probably had sangria at one point in time, but many people who enjoy spirits do not know how easy it is to make on their own. Use red wine as your mixer for Bacardi to make a great sangria summer punch.
- Mix Bacardi, red wine, and your choice of fruit
- Let the sangria sit for a few hours
- Enjoy one of the tastiest mixed drinks available
Sangria is a go-to choice for hot summer days or experimenting with new flavors. This concoction is one of the most exquisite on the list, but it is as easy to make as any of the others.
6. Ginger Beer
For those who want to add an apparent spice to their Bacardi cocktail, ginger beer is an excellent choice. If you have not used ginger beer as a mixer for a cocktail before, it is certainly deserving of a chance. It is difficult to compete with the unique flavor of ginger beer.
You can use ginger beer to mix with Bacardi for a Moscow Mule with rum or a ginger beer mojito. It is an easy way to explore simple cocktail recipes.

7. Blue Raspberry Juice
If you do not care about making the fanciest cocktail there is, blue raspberry juice mixes nicely with Bacardi for a fruity rum punch. It is a great choice if you are making a cocktail mix in bulk for a party or gathering, but it also works great as a single serving.
You want to be careful when mixing Bacardi with blue raspberry juice, especially if you are not particular about the sour taste of blue raspberry. However, when poured correctly, it does not take away from the flavor of Bacardi rum.
8. Lime Juice
Bacardi with a hint of lime keeps the full flavor of Bacardi while adding the sweet and sour kick that so many people love. Lime juice is a great mixer for Bacardi because it keeps the natural flavor of Bacardi shining through.
However, Bacardi with lime juice is not the only iteration of this mixed cocktail. Everyone enjoys a frozen daiquiri. Grab a blender and mix:
- Bacardi rum
- Lime juice
- Fresh fruit of your choice
- Simple syrup
You will not regret this all-star mix.
9. Irish Cream
For an unorthodox cocktail, consider using Irish cream as your mixer for Bacardi. Add a splash of fresh cream for a smooth and creamy rum White Russian.
Bacardi is extremely versatile, and the ability to make so many different drinks, such as a Russian Cream with white rum, makes your trips to the liquor store all the more exciting.

10. Coconut Water
Coconut is flavorful enough on its own, and there is no harm in adding as much as possible. Mixing coconut water with Bacardi rum keeps your drink refreshing and healthy but as tasty as ever.
Coconut water enhances the smooth wave of Bacardi and works well if you do not want to stray too far from the natural rum flavor.
Bacardi has a versatile flavor that pairs well with a wide variety of mixers. Whether you are looking to make an intricate cocktail or simply want one ingredient for your mixed drink, this list is a great place to begin exploring your cocktail options.
