Cocktails of the Caribbean

Fancy a drink? ‘Caribbean Cocktails’ is an exclusive new guide to some of the most enjoyable and exciting cocktail recipes ever created in the Caribbean. Each one is the signature drink of celebrated luxury hotels from Antigua to St Lucia and Grenada to Jamaica.

Many of the hotels in this colourful booklet have associations with past and present cocktail quaffing Hollywood stars and personalities.

Grenada’s favourite resort, Calabash, offers Jefferson’s Calabash Cooler, specially created some years ago for movie stars Harry Belafonte and James Mason, while Eden Rock on St Barths, once the hideaway of both Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes, gives up the secrets of its famous Eden Rock Ginger Martini.

Mango Cosmopolitan comes from the award winning Jamaica Inn, Jamaica, once loved by both Marilyn Monroe and Errol Flynn, while Coconut Delight is the offering from Young Island, St. Vincent in the Grenadines.

Young Island played host to Johnny Depp and Keira Knighley when they were filming the original Pirates of the Caribbean.


Curtain Bluff, Antigua, offers Caribbean Fantasy, an invention of head barman Bradford Tonge while East Winds Inn, St Lucia really got into the idea and has contributed two delicious recipes, the East Winds Dream and St. Lucia Wave.
