While checking out the British Virgin Islands, I stayed at the Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina. The charming resort had 52 guest accommodations, 10 luxury villas, and a 55-slip marina.

I headed to the pool bar late one morning and introduced myself to the bartender, Stacy. I wanted to try a few house specialties, so I ordered several drinks: the Scrubslide, Basil Shores, and Scrub Island Spiced Tea. The Scrubslide tastes like a milkshake but has a potent punch.

Ingredients you’ll need to make a Scrubslide

Scrub Island Scrubslide Ingredients
Tropical Cocktail Scrubslide Ingredients
  • Absolut Vodka
  • Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
  • Kahula Coffee Liqueur
  • Amaretto Disaronno
  • Cream of Coconut


Absolut is a good, mid-priced Vodka, but Tito’s and Ketel One are also popular.

I always buy Kahlua for the coffee-flavored liqueur when the coffee liqueur is the ‘feature’ of the drink, but when mixing with three other liquors, you can purchase a less expensive coffee liqueur. I feel the same for the Amaretto Disaronno.

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!
