Ice Breaker

This tropical cocktail called the Ice Breaker was suggested to me while I was traveling in the British Virgin Islands in 2021 during the pandemic. One day I hired a guide to take me to some of the nearby islands because I wanted to learn how to make the best tropical cocktail recipes in the BVIs. My first stop was to the Cooper Island Beach Club and there a bartender named Saturn showed me how to make this really unique drink. Click on the video below to watch Saturn make an Ice Breaker.

Saturn is using Blue Chair Bay Coconut rum for the tropical cocktail recipe the Ice Breaker, which I was able to find at Total Wine. He also used fresh lime juice, and coconut cream. Sometimes if I’m in a hurry or I don’t have any fresh limes at home I’ll use a bottled lime juice. I typically buy the Goya cream of coconut in the international section of my grocery store. It’s a bit less expensive than the coconut cream you would find in the drink mix section of the store.

Tropical cocktail recipe ingredients for the Ice Breaker

Saturn shakes the drink ingredients in a shaker and pours it into a glass filled with crushed ice. He then tops it off with the Blue Curacao and a quick stir. If you don’t have a good shaker, try this one from OXO. This drink reminds me of a Pina Colada with a blue twist! It’s delicious and easy to make and it brings me right back to the beach on Cooper Island!
