St John is known for its gorgeous beaches and hiking trails, but it’s also a hotspot for delicious drinks. With its thriving cocktail and punch culture, there are plenty of places to enjoy a drink when staying at st john villa rentals.
If you’re looking for the best punches and cocktails to try in St. John, here are our top picks:
1. Painkiller: a blend of rum, pineapple juice, coconut milk and orange juice. This is a drink that’s been around since the early 1980s, but it’s still as popular as ever today!
2. Banana Daiquiri: a blend of dark rum, banana liqueur and lime juice. This one is especially popular with tourists who want something fruity without being too sweet or sugary.
3. Rum Punch: this is a classic cocktail made with dark rum, orange juice and grenadine syrup (it may sound weird but trust us on this one). You can find this drink at any bar on St John so you won’t have any trouble getting your hands on one!
4. Dark ‘n Stormy – The perfect drink for those who like their libations on the bitter side. The Dark ‘n Stormy is made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Ginger Beer—it’ll put hair on your chest!
5. The Hurricane: made from rum, lime juice, orange juice and grenadine syrup, it’s usually served with ice in a hurricane glass or in a punch bowl.
