Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/05/02 12:51 AM

Since we are on the topic of favorites, what are some favorite or recommended tropical drinks to try while on AC? Obviously, the Belikin beer is already on my list. Describe the drink and please suggest where is the best place on AC to try it.

I always go for shots of gold whereever I am. On AC, rum punches, Belikins, Lighthouse beer, Mata Colada, coconut rum shots, pina coladas. Oh, and don't forget the infamous "Blue Hole" drink at BCs. Smooth, real smooth!

now again, i must reiterate that the blue thingy is NOT a belize drink. it is choochoo's drink from indiana.

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/05/02 04:31 AM

is Indiana in the Caribbean? I thought they were in the Big 10

Shaggy makes a very fine Dirty Banana . . .

And of course, everyone must have a couple of Panty-Rippers.

Jane, jane,jane,

Your memory is failing you. The infamous "blue" drink made it's world debut at the Palapa Bar in 1996. There is some suspicion that an overly generous amount of adult beverage consumption proceeded our (our?)instructions to the bar-keep-ette that equal amounts of vodka and gin topped with a dollop of blue curacao might be "fun".

To my liking, it is VERY tropical. Certainly after the third or fourth. VERY tropical.

I'm a panty ripper kind of chick. And while I think that Zeke's make a killer ripper in St. Auggie, I still have to say Albert is the best. And those Brain Cell shots he makes... come on guys.... those will kick your butt.
I also have to give great cudo's to Don at Canuck's. He's the one who got me started on PR's over a year ago...

Purple Parrot, Blue Hole, Belizean Mama, Pina Colada, Kamikazee, Dirty Banana, Panty-Ripper, Coconut Curls, & Brain Cell. Good thing I will be there for almost two weeks. cool

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/07/02 04:36 PM

well, well, well, we have stayed at coconuts a couple of times which got me hooked on belizean mamas fast, we always return to the scene of the crime each trip but that is for the love of margie and ada.
my fav drink is my own creation. pineapple juice and lemon rum.
after a day in the hot sun the coconut rum got a bit sticky sweet. try the lemon rum next time.
cool

I prefer to be overserved with a Panty Ripper and a good old Screwdriver.

Wait...that doesn't necessarily make me look good does it.

Wow Jane... what a great pic. So sharp! ...and that drink looks like nothing Ive ever seen. What the heck is it???

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/08/02 03:47 AM

Jane,
Awesome pic! I'm gonna have to have one of those. So does it enhance one's brain cells, or obliterate them?

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/08/02 05:26 PM

Our group's favorite drink is Panty Rippers @
Cholos. A little beach bar next to Lilies.
Freddy(Dreddy) makes the BEST ones.
Right Snowbird!!!!

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/08/02 06:03 PM

Hi bb - yes I agree!! The ones we made ourselves were pretty tasty too and the Horchata & rum wasn't bad either smile
Alas I won't be able to get one (or more)on the island this year so please everyone, hoist one of your choice for me!
Posted By: Barbara K

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/08/02 06:39 PM

Horchata & rum???? Now that's a new one on me. Probably even good for you! (Horchata is a sweetened rice water drink - high in Vit B's) Learn something new every day!!!

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/08/02 08:35 PM

hi barb - glad to help smile but i didn't know it was actually GOOD for you too. One of our group would mix up a big container and stash it in the cooler on the boat - yummy refreshing

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/09/02 04:19 AM

As a practical matter, what does a Belikan or a tropical drink such as those being mentioned in this discussion generally cost on AC?
Posted By: CHOOCHOO

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/09/02 03:09 PM

Between $1.75 and $4.00 US, the beer obviously at the lower end. There was a time (oh, dear) when a good stiff rum and Coke could be had for a $1.50 US. A perfect recipe for trouble.

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/10/02 03:14 AM

Thanks for the info. Prices seem very reasonable, which leaves more $ to tip my favorite bartender when he or she makes my favorite drink. With the list of suggestions compiled here, I will have my "work" cut out for me trying them all. (WORK = 12 oz curls)

Based upon another thread on this discussion board, guess I'll have to pass on a renting a golf cart after going out to sample tropical drinks, since I don't want to get pulled over by the SP sheriff and his deputies. I doubt anyone in my group will volunteer to be the designated driver. So do they have a golf cart rigged with flashing lights and a siren? HA!

My true Belizean favorite is Coco Loco. Cholo's makes the best and we buy it by the gallon!

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/10/02 04:37 PM

The brain cell things look totally disgusting. I had to close my eyes to drink it. It REALLY looks like mangled brain tissue.. YUCK!! But is tastes pretty good!!! After three, I was three sheets to the wind!! You feel it all the way down to your toes.
The best pina colada on the island is at Papi's diner. Make sure you have Papi mix it himself. They are awesome and big enough for two.
Panty rippers can't be beat, of course, but we also had a blender in our room and purchased lots of tropical fruit and made our own lethal "smoothies". smile Fresh mango daquiris are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!
P.S. the "Blue Hole" drink is also known as the Tidy Bowl. smile

Re: Favorite Tropical Drink - 10/10/02 04:47 PM

Debbie,

Can you verify (or deny) reports that, on at least one occasion, a female tourist in San Pedro was seen drinking one of my yummy blue drinks out of a commode. I thought that I had heard something like that but my memory fails me much of the time.

Yer welcome as usual.

cc - anyone remotely involved in that kind of low-class behavior should be immediately deported smile

(you can get the brain cells at caribe island.)

I am looking for a minature for black label, red label whiskeys to add to my collection of 200.

Chooch,
I can't deny it.... There are to many people out there with a picture to prove that I drank from the Tidy bowl...... tee hee hee. It was definately a new experience, but in honor of the expereince, I do believe the commode now sits on your desk??????? laugh I still say the tidy bowl drink tastes like jet fuel.
