Several months ago, we introduced our friends at Team Cocktail and they wrote a guest post about their company. They also graciously provided some tips for our fans about tropical drinks, islands and bars- in case you feel like traveling! Lyndsey wrote this several months ago, so we'll check back in with them to see if these are still Team Cocktail favorites, or if they've discovered new favorites.
Favorite Tropical Drink: It's so hard for us to choose just one because our motto is: Travel Global, Drink Local. So wherever we are, we drink the local beverage of choice, and we love that. But if we had to pick just one…it would probably be the Painkiller from The Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke, a British Virgin Island. It's one of those tropical drinks that has a tendency to sneak up on you after only a couple. It's a delicious mix of rum (lots of it), coconut creme, juices and fresh nutmeg.
Favorite Tropical Island/Bar: Well obviously we love the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke from our answer above. Jost Van Dyke is a secluded island that is untouched by commercial development. Remember Kenny Chesney's song "Somewhere in the Sun," well this is the island he is singing about. Picture perfect white sand, turquoise blue waters, friendly people and a few beach bar/shacks along the beach not a hotel or resort in sight.
A few other favorites are Bikini Beach Bar on Orient Beach in St. Martin, The Boatyard on Barbados and Reggae Beach Bar on St. Kitts. We could list so many more but these top the list!
Where has Team Cocktail traveled, what places are up next? Wow, I don't know that you would even want to read about all of the places we have traveled, nor do I think I could list them all. But let's just say that between all four founders we have been to almost every Caribbean island, Maui, the Mediterranean, the UK, Europe and around the U.S.

It's probably no surprise that those of us at the Sandbar are jealous of Team Cocktail's travels to tropical locales! If we're ever able to get away from the bar for a tropical vacation, we'll definitely give them a call for tips on where to go and what to drink.
