Jamaican Drinks, contributed by Tracie Blake

We have a wide variety of juicy tropical fruits and so, it is no surprise the type and variety of exciting drinks we prepare.

And by the way, we don’t discriminate rum, unless a Jamaican is under aged, deeply religious or on medication, he or she will want his drink with Jamaican rum :-)!

These are some of our favourites.

Natural Juices

We have the refreshing ice cold coconut water, Irish Moss, Sorrel (a Jamaican favourite to prepare at Christmas time ), Limeade, Tamarind, June Plum, Guava, Soursop, Cucumber and Carrot juices.

These juices, all made with the main ingredient of the fruits they are named after, are perhaps the most popular local drinks.

Bottled Drinks

We have bottled juices in an array of exciting flavours. In addition to those above, there are carbonated bottled drinks such as Ting made from Jamaican grapefruit- with no preservatives, assorted sodas and the traditional Ginger Beer, made from Jamaican ginger Roots.

These drinks are prepared in homes as well as bottled and sold on the local market. Not to be outdone in preparation are the popular roadside vendors who are known for their naturally squeezed sugarcane juice, freshly made bag juices and steeped roots drinks.

We normally serve all the above over ice or chilled but we do make room for something warm.

And yes, even in this region, we’ve got warm beverages such are the world renowned, Blue Mountain Coffee, Milo and Chocolate. These are usually sweetened with condensed milk and had at breakfast time.

Rum Based Cocktails

Rum is in practically every Jamaican Beverage you can think of. There is the ever popular Jamaican Mai Tai which is a combination of dark rum and pineapple juice along with other ingredients. Rum Punch, a mixture of white rum and fruit juices, is also very popular at parties.

The Bob Marley is another popular cocktail which comprises of alcohol in the Rastafarian colours of red, green and yellow. These are poured directly into a glass in the aforementioned order showing a beautiful colour formation.

Other Alcoholic Beverages

Red Stripe Beer is almost as synomymous to Jamaica as reggae music. There is nothing like an ice-cold Red Stripe Beer on a hot day. Guinness, although not originally from here, is another popular Jamaican Beer which has a base of molasses and is quite potent. Of course there are lots more, we won't have time to mention.
