Part Three: Bringing the BVI to You

British Virgins Islands sign

This week’s exciting rendition of our exclusive #BringingParadiseToYou blog series is all about the one and only British Virgin Islands (BVI)—our flagship charter base, the holy grail of yachting destinations, and the ultimate “home away from home” for Moorings guests. As our unified nation continues searching for ways to stick together while staying apart, we hope the items below will spread a little joy into your lives and help keep you in good spirits in the weeks to come.

“Painkiller Pops” Recipe

Preparing Painkiller Popsicles

 

We know you are no stranger to the BVI’s world-famous Painkiller cocktail, so we’re sharing a fun new way to enjoy this tropical concoction at home with our “Painkiller Pops” recipe. I mean honestly—what better way to “chill out” and chase your troubles away than with a frozen version of your favorite Caribbean rum drink?! Here’s how to make it…


WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
(Yield: about 6 popsicle sized servings)

  • 7 ½ ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ½ ounces coconut milk
  • 1 ½ ounces orange juice
  • 1 ½ ounces dark rum (We are partial to Soggy Dollar Rum)
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple
  • ½ cup simple syrup or agave nectar
  • Grated nutmeg (optional)
DIRECTIONS:
Mix or blend together the pineapple juice, coconut milk, orange juice, rum, crushed pineapple, and simple syrup.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze overnight or until frozen.

If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can also use disposable plastic/paper cups (which can be peeled off before serving) or glass/plastic tumblers from your cupboard (run the cup under some warm water to remove before serving). With either of those options, create your own “stick” using standard popsicle sticks, reusable plastic straws, utensils, or chopsticks.


And if all else fails, freeze the mixture in a Tupperware container, thaw until scoopable, serve in bowls, and enjoy your Painkiller slushies with a spoon!
