Currently I’m sitting in the airport ready to head home, and as I look over my photos from the past trips one thing stands out to me. Beaches Turks & Caicos was a highlight of my travel time away. While I was there attending a social media conference I had plenty of time to enjoy and discover what Beaches had to offer, one of which is some crazy, fun, and just downright dangerous cocktails. Here’s a look at some of the research I did, just for you my loyal readers, to find unique and one of a kind drinks for you to search out on your trip to Beaches Turks & Caicos.

A little lead info, each restaurant and bar at Beaches Turks & Caicos should have a specialty drink or even a specialty drink menu. However, you might have to ask for it! Pair that with the hidden bartender specials at some of the bars, and you can have quite a vacation picking your favorite “poison”. Here’s just a sampling of the drinks I took for a test drive.

FROZEN MOJITO

Frozen Mojito

One of my favorite drinks to look at, especially when sitting next to this kind of view. While I’m not typically a mojito fan, I certainly can enjoy sipping this minty drink. This frozen version amps up the refreshing mint component that is the mojito signature flavor. I’m not sure if this is a bartender special or a bar special, but you can try to sip your own at the bar inside Bayside Restaurant.

CAICOS SLING

Another rum based drink, there’s a lot of those at Beaches Turks & Caicos, this one has a touch of pineapple and some bubbles, the perfect complement to a foil packet of jerk chicken from the Jerk Shack. This is one of 5 of their signature drinks, so make an afternoon stop and try one of each!

DIRTY BANANA

Ready for a few immature giggles – order a dirty banana if you dare.

SAKI CRUISE

Saki Cruise

This is the specialty drink at Kimono’s and it’s quite tasty. Some vanilla vodka and saki for the power punch, followed by some cranberry & pineapple juices. After a couple of these you’ll be singing along loudly with the musical chefs.

PIMM’S CUP

Pimm's Cup

Pimm’s Cup

Grab your wickets and head to Cricketer’s Pub to get your hands on a whole specialty drink menu. First up is their signature Pimm’s Cup. This is a fruity, light drink featuring Pimms, lime, orange, and sprite. Perfect match to a heavy fish and chips dish.

FUZZY BUCCANEER

Fuzzy Buccaneer

Fuzzy Buccaneer

When you’re ready to reminisce¬†your old college days, order a fuzzy buccaneer at Cricketer’s. Featuring rum, peach schnapps, and OJ, you’re sure to have flashbacks of punch bowls, and perhaps another type of bowl too.

COCONUT WATER

Coconut Water

Coconut Water

Once you’ve had enough of the liquor, my final specialty drink is a rare find. To grab a refreshing taste of fresh coconut water, you’ll have to head out early in the morning when the landscaping crew is still at work. We had a lovely bartender at the Iguana Pool (Caribbean Village) who was able to track down someone to grab a coconut from the tree, then prep it, and add the Turks & Caicos logo, before adding a straw and letting us sip away. You can’t really ask for much more from a beach vacation.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek into some of the specialty drinks available at Beaches Turks & Caicos. Remember, sometimes you have to ask specifically about special drinks, and often bartenders will have their own specialty as well. Cheers!

      That frozen mojito was a huge surprise for me because it was so good. A fun take on a classic drink. Hope you can make it to Beaches soon! I can’t wait to return with my family this time!

      I remember the Hummingbird, I might not have had my phone on me for a photo then :). Never had the Crazy Bishop but perhaps I need to head back to try that one!

    Just returned from Beaches, had a fabulous time. I had a hummingbird that was to die for. I have searched the internet for the recipe unsuccessfully. The one I had was a light violet color and none of the recipes called for anything that would give it the color. There were small pieces of fruit floating in it. Is it possible blackberries were added to give it the color and maybe blackberry brandy.

      Yummy! I wonder if you call Beaches directly if they can get you a recipe? Maybe the food and beverage director? I recall that so many of the drinks were special creations made by the individual bartenders and didn’t really have a recipe, LOL!
