Recipes for Seven Caribbean-Minded Cocktails

7 Tropical Cocktail Recipes to Get Into a Caribbean State of Mind. 

Catamaran and power yacht charter vacations.

Drinks on a Caribbean Sailing Vacation.

You might not have ever heard of some of these tropical libations. They are the creations and variations on a few classics from captains and crews who have sailed the many islands of the Caribbean in search of fun, adventure and drink.

These tantalizing drinks will definitely put the ‘spirit’ of the Caribbean in you while you are there, planning to go there or just thinking about being there.

If you are planning a yacht charter vacation, while on board these will put you in a relaxed state of mind.  Can you think of a better way to start a Caribbean sailing vacation than with a uniquely delicious cocktail?

Or maybe instead of waiting till you get there, you might like to try these at home to get you into that ‘No Worries, Mon’ attitude.

Flying Ginny CatamaranAs a catamaran charter yacht captain in the Caribbean and having been based in the Virgin islands allowed me to get to know all the yacht charter captains and chefs.

We would get together as often as we could on the evenings between cruises for dinner, drinks and spirited sessions of talks. A favorite topic of our conversations was “What is your favorite drink you serve to your guests?”

Here’s a list of 7 Caribbean cocktail recipes collected during evenings with our friends we made from different catamarans and power yachts over the 5 years I was chartering the Caribbean Islands.

For booking yacht charters and additional information contact us on 800-478-2029 or via email.

Did you know that with an all-inclusive catamaran sailing vacation charter you have unlimited access to the ship’s bar?  You can mix ’em yourself or sit back and let the crew spoil you.

We hope you enjoy these tropical delights and vacation to the fullest. Cheers!
