11 Caribbean drinks

Most people, when they think of vacations in the Caribbean, they think of all tropical drinks they are going to have. You know those drinks you have while lounging in a chair by the seaside or next to the pool?

Normally people always think of those tropical drinks with fruit juices and umbrellas poking out.

But to be honest, rum punches are not drinks that locals indulge in a lot. Yes, we drink rum. Yes, we make punches, but I can assure you that when we think of beverages, a rum punch isn't the first drink we think of.

We are more than just pineapple juice and mango juice

We indulge in so many types of foods, that it isn't surprising that we, as a result, make drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) with a wide range of ingredients.

So I'm here to share with you some non-umbrella holding drinks that we, as West Indians indulge in on a regular basis.
