Rum Journal: Voodoo Juice From St Thomas’ Bolongo Bay Resort

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 30, 2014

The folks at St Thomas’ Bolongo Bay tell us that this potent punch is best enjoyed at Iggies Beach bar, the popular drinkery at the USVI all-inclusive resort.

But since it includes (count ‘em) five varieties of Cruzan rum served in a bucket, we’re thinking it’d be best (and more safely) imbibed while in a horizontal position, perhaps face up in a hammock on Bolongo’s beach?

Whether you chug it standing or supine, take our advice and make sure you have a soft place to land. Because this punch really packs one.

Voodoo Juice


1 ounce Cruzan pineapple rum

1 ounce Cruzan banana rum

1 ounce Cruzan coconut rum

1 ounce Cruzan citrus rum

½ ounce Cruzan dark rum

3 ounces cranberry juice

3 ounces pineapple juice


Fill a large glass (or bucket) with ice and pour in the pineapple, banana, coconut and citrus rums. Then add the fruit juices, and finish with a floater of dark rum. Raise glass (or bucket) and toast.
