TOP 5 Caribbean Yacht Charter Cocktails To Try Right Now

QUESTION

“I’m looking forward to my first St. Martin yacht charter vacation, and my travel companions and I are having a Caribbean themed party to get super psyched about our trip.  Any suggestions for top 5 cocktails (traditional / island) to put us in the proper frame of mind?”

Angel A., Miami, FL

 

ANSWER

Now that’s the spirit, Angel!  What a fantastic idea to get pumped about your Caribbean escape.

We’re not too embarrassed to admit enjoying a libation or two (or three) during our own yachting excursions in the islands. Local specialties can be found throughout the Caribbean. but we’ve narrowed down the choices to our favorites (in no particular order).

 

KEEP IN MIND

As you sip these drinks, keep in mind you can heighten your experience by throwing on a pair of flip-flops, hiding behind a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, and swaying to a little “Havana Daydreamin” with Jimmy Buffet.

Smooth sailing, Angel…

TOP 5 COCKTAILS

MOJITO – Cuba yacht charter

Some things are quintessential Cuban – hand-made cigars, guayabera linen shirts, and minty Mojitos. The history of Cuba’s signature drink dates back to the 16th century, when Sir Francis Drake and his comrades drank a mixture of crushed mint leaves, lime and unrefined rum. Locals say Hemingway drank them at Le Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, and James Bond enjoyed one in 2002’s Die Another Day.

PAINKILLER – British Virgin Islands yacht charter

Made with Pusser’s Rum, The Painkiller cocktail originated at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke island in the BVIs.  The drink was once made with a secret rum recipe by Daphne Henderson, the owner of the Soggy Dollar.  Charles Tobias, the founder of the Pusser’s rum distillery, persuaded Henderson to share her recipe. We’re glad she did, as Painkiller cocktails are now readily available throughout the Caribbean.

TI PUNCH – Martinique yacht charter

More an aperitif than cocktail, this simple mix of white rum, cane sugar and lime is usually served straight and is popular in all of the French Caribbean islands – Martinique, Guadeloupe, and the French side of St. Martin. Easy to make, it’s usually  served “to taste” – drinkers are presented with a glass of rum, a lime, and some syrup to make it up as they wish.
