Four Hot New Caribbean Drinks

The Lemon Crash

At the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

Ingredients: Lemon wedges, sugar syrup, lime juice, Mount Gay Rum

Dana Hokin, an owner: “For many years back in the early ’80s, all of the boats at Bitter End Yacht Club were named after the resort’s drinks, or the drinks were named after the boats. The Lemon Crash is the name of the J-24 that my father and I used for our father-daughter sailing adventure before we delivered it to Bitter End.”

Paddy Got a Sunburn

At Gansevoort Turks Caicos

Ingredients: Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, Canton ginger liqueur, ginger beer, lemon juice

Gordon Adams, the house mixologist: “This is our play on a traditional Dark and Stormy. We replace the rum with the Guinness stout, which is a huge beer favorite among the locals here, and add a little bit of Canton ginger in order to kick up the ginger flavors.”

GoldenEye

At GoldenEye, Oracabessa, Jamaica

Ingredients: Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum, lime juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup

Chris Blackwell, the owner: “No matter where I am, this instantly transports me back to Jamaica. It reminds me of the simple yet delicious cocktails my mother used to whip up for her friends: Noël Coward, Errol Flynn and Ian Fleming.”

Love City

At Fatty Crab, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

Ingredients: Gin or vodka, cucumber, basil, cardamom, lemon

Zak Pelaccio, the owner: “The only way this drink would be more appropriate for St. John is if one were to walk with it to the beach, head into the water, and wade in the ocean while drinking it.”
