Rum Journal: Voodoo Juice From St Thomas’ Bolongo Bay Resort
By Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon

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.
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.
