After one sip, you’ll be bouncing from island to island.

Nothing says summer like this potent tropical cocktail from the Pink Sands Resort on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.

Smashes are drinks that usually contain muddled mint, but not always. Some examples of early smashes from the 1800’s consist of a spirit, like whisky, gin, or rum with sugar and mint. These were usually served in an old fashion glass. The modern idea for a smash is a drink with a good dose of spirit and a combination of fresh fruit juices. The Goombay Smash is a popular example of this modern variation. The original smash was created in Green Turtle Cay, the Bahamas at the Blue Bee Bar. This drink is now popular throughout the Caribbean. If you like rum, pineapple and coconut, this drink might be for you, however, this is not your mothers pina colada.
