Rum Journal: Cap Juluca’s Island Mix


By Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon

In Anguilla, the colors of Cap Juluca resort’s frozen cooler are inspired by those of the island itself: Yellow and orange for the sun; turquoise for the crystalline waters that surround it; and green for the heart of its people. The best place to enjoy it? Overlooking Maundays Bay in the resort’s waterfront restaurant, of course – appropriately named Blue.
