Turks and Caicos Beer, Rum and Other Cool Drinks

Staying hydrated is an important part of a Turks and Caicos vacation.  Whether you are simply relaxing on the beach or actively enjoying the island lifestyle, the sun and heat can quickly leave you with a need to quench your thirst.

If you normally start your day with a walk on the beach, or a workout at the gym, head to Market at Blue Haven Resort and Marina after your exercise regimen for a delicious Allegro coffee, cappucino or tea.  A combination café and upscale grocery store, Market also carries an excellent selection of juices and soft drinks. Market features a lovely outdoor patio by the canal, where you can relax with a beverage, check your email and watch the local boat traffic.

If you enjoy smoothies, visit Melt, a smoothie, ice cream and juice bar, and coffee shop, located in Regent Village.  The venue is equally entertaining; try on costumes, ride a toy horse, or even sip a glass of champagne on the shaded terrace.

When it is time to try a cocktail on the beach, the Sherminator at Beach House is not to be missed.  Named after the much loved beach attendant, Sherman, at Beach House, the refreshing rum punch cocktail can be enjoyed at the resort’s Beach Deck overlooking Grace Bay Beach.  It’s also a great spot to enjoy lunch during the week.  On Sundays, visit the Beach Deck for happy hour specials from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm, and then stay for the authentic beach barbecue, which is hosted from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm every Sunday during the summer.

Rum punch is best enjoyed when made with Bambarra rum, the official “spirit” of the Turks and Caicos.  You can also purchase a pre-mixed rum punch in a bottle at the grocery store if you prefer to enjoy a cocktail in the comfort of your own suite.  Rum sampling is offered at Bambarra’s retail store, FOTTAC, in Regent Village.

Another local favourite is Turks Head beer.  It is the most affordably priced Turks and Caicos beer sold on the island and readily available at most bars and restaurants.

At the end of the day, take time out to visit the intimate bar at Beach House’s Kitchen 218.  “Sly”, the bartender, specializes in making personalized drinks, or choose a beverage from the restaurant’s extensive cocktail list.  The wine list is equally impressive and varied.  Kitchen 218 is open every day except dinner service on Thursday.
