The Sugar Free Saint Croix Rum Fix is another cocktail adapted from Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails, as written by Dr. Cocktail, but was actually originally published in The Complete Bartender, by Albert Barnes in 1884!
The Sugar Free Saint Croix Rum Fix is a wonderful example of everything that can be great with a cocktail. It has a sharp bold flavor from the spiced rum, yet has a pleasant tropical fruity pineapple and citrus flavor. This cocktail is quickly becoming high on our repeat cocktail list!

The Sugar Free Saint Croix Rum Fix
- 2 oz Dark Rum (we used Kraken, though Virgin Islands Rum or Cruzan Estate Dark Rum were recommended by Dr. Cocktail
- 0.5 oz Pineapple Vodka
- 1 oz ReaLemon
- 2.5 tspns Splenda
- Crushed/Shaved Ice
First, obtain some crushed or shaved ice and place it in a martini glass until it’s about 3/4 full. Then, in a separate mixing cup, add all the reagents and stir until mixed. Once mixed, pour directly into your iced martini glass.
While not necessary, we recommend adding a straw (or even a silly little umbrella) to enhance the vacation-like experience of this cocktail. Trust us, you’ll be making this one again!
