One morning, I headed to the Scrub Island, BVI pool bar, early enough that the Bartender was still setting up for the day. I wanted to taste and photograph some tropical cocktail house specialties, so I introduced myself to Stacy, the Bartender.

I ordered 3 drinks from the menu that caught my attention: the ScrubslideScrub Island Spiced Tea, and Basil Shores. Stacy asked if I was going to drink all of them?! I told her not to worry; I planned to taste and photograph the tropical cocktails.

I then explained to her that I had a blog and wanted to highlight exotic cocktails of the BVIs. At that point, Stacy suggested I try the Blue Passion drink she had created. It was everything an exotic tropical cocktail should be.

Tips

Try Absolut, Tito’s, or Ketel One for an all-around good Vodka.

Make sure you use thicker passion fruit juice. As you can see, I settled on Passion Fruit Pulp, which I found here.

Here is an awesome product to help YOU make the most incredible drinks. Impress your family and friends and be the BEST Cocktail Barista in your neighborhood.

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world so buying a cocktail shaker can seriously step up your at-home drink game. Think about it: no more settling for boring mixed drinks when you can whip up bar-quality cocktails in your kitchen. It’s not just about the fancy presentation (although that’s a fun bonus) but also about how it makes mixing drinks easier and more fun. 

I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

Plus, once you get the hang of shaking, you’ll feel like a total pro, impressing your friends and yourself with your newfound bartending skills. So why not add a little shake, shake, shake to your life and upgrade your happy hour?
