Are you longing for a mesmerizing cocktail with sweet orange and rich coconut flavors? Yearn no more and make an Ice Breaker. The Ice Breaker puts a twist on the basic Pina Colada, and best of all, you don’t need a blender to whip up this true-blue Caribbean cocktail.
In the British Virgin Islands, I hired a guide to take me to some of the nearby islands because I wanted to showcase on my blog some of the best-tasting drinks in the BVIs.
At the Cooper Island Beach Club, my first stop, Saturn, a bartender, demonstrated how to make the Ice Breaker. Click on the picture below to watch a Saturn making an Ice Breaker YouTube video.

Ingredients that you’ll need to make this awesome Ice Breaker
- Coconut Rum
- Blue Curacao
- Cream of Coconut
- Lime Juice
Saturn uses Blue Chair Bay Coconut rum to make this tropical cocktail. I found the Blue Chair Bay Coconut rum at my local liquor store.
I typically buy the Goya cream of coconut in the international section of my grocery store. Goya is less expensive than the coconut cream you would find in the drink mix section of the store.

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.
You can’t mix a great cocktail or martini without a great shaker. 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!

Saturn also uses fresh lime juice. I sometimes use bottled lime juice if I’m in a hurry or don’t have any fresh limes. Try this citrus juicer if you like to use freshly squeezed lime juice in your cocktails.
How to make the cool blue Ice Breaker
Saturn shakes the Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, lime juice, and cream of coconut in a shaker filled with ice. Then he pours the strained liquid into a glass filled with crushed ice. Finally, Saturn tops off the Ice Breaker with Blue Curacao and then a quick stir.
Just one sip of the Ice Breaker brings me back to the bar stool overlooking the beautiful Cooper Island beach. The warm breeze blows through my hair, the sun glistens off the water, and the cocktail is nestled in my hand. Delicious and easy to make, this drink reminds me of a Pina Colada with a blue twist!
So shake up the cocktail, sit back, and relax. And imagine you are at the bar on Cooper Island, BVIs.
