Let me preface this blog post by stating that here in HOT-lanta we’re expecting between one and two inches of snow (and unfortunately there’s some ice thrown in the mix). While this does give me a great reason to sip on a spiked hot chocolate or hot toddy as I watch plump snowflakes fall from the comfort of my own home, I have to say that I’d much rather be sipping on a tropics-inspired beverage somewhere in the Caribbean (preferably Jamaica…just saying).
If you’re like me and a trip to an island boasting turquoise waters and white sand beaches isn’t quite in the near future then you can always whip yourself up a cocktail that happens to be served at a Caribbean resort. The three cocktails I’ve listed below are served at bars located at resorts in Aruba, St. Kitts, and Anguilla. Enjoy!
