Happy National Rum Day! Here are 5 of the best rum cocktails in London. From a rum and coconut take on an Old Fashioned, to a rich coffee cocktail, served with a slither of chocolate.

1. Oak Island Old Fashioned – Dandelyan

The world’s best cocktail bar does a banging twist on an old fashioned, served with a  hefty piece of rope tied around the glass, pirate-style. The Oak Island is made with rum, labdanum, cocoa husk and coconut fibres.

2. Plantain Colada – Rum Kitchen

The Pina Colada gets a banana twist with this rum kitchen cocktail. With Bacardi Superior, banana, chocolate and pimento liquor, fresh plantain and mango, coconut cream and pineapple juice.

3. Cygnet – Reverend JW Simpson

The whole menu at JWS is a homage to famous literary greats, and this drink is an ode to Hans Christian Anderson – with Skipper & Blackwell Rum, stirred with Mr Black coffee liqueur and miscovado black pepper syrup, laced with Coole Swan single malt Irish Whiskey cream liqueur.
