St. Barth, a tropical haven nestled in the Caribbean, is renowned for its pristine beaches, azure waters, and a vibrant culinary scene. While exploring this idyllic island, one cannot miss the opportunity to indulge in the delightful world of cocktails. From the I​sland inspired Planters Punch to c​lassics such as the Dusty Martini and the bold Bloody Mary, St. Barth offers a sensory journey of mixology. Here we'll explore these three delectable cocktails and the best spots to enjoy them on this enchanting island.
1. Planters Punch:
The moment you set foot in St. Barth, immerse yourself in the tropical flavors of a classic Planters Punch. This rum-based concoction features a harmonious blend of fruity flavors, citrusy tang, and a hint of island spice.​ Our favorite local spot serving delicious yet dangerous "Planteurs" as they are called here is Le Select in the heart of Gustavia.  Make sure to leave a good tip, they may recognize you with a loud bang on the gong (reserved exclusively for their best customers!)
2. Classic Dusty Martini:
For those seeking a touch of sophistication, the Dusty Martini is a timeless choice​ and the most beautiful spot to imbibe in this classic cocktail is at Fouquet's at the Carl Gustaf Hotel overlooking Gustavia Harbor. ​ Sip your Dusty Martini (wrapped in a red bow) while soaking in the breathtaking sunset views, and let the island's charm captivate your senses.
3. Bloody Mary:
When it comes to revitalizing cocktails, the Bloody Mary reigns supreme. This savory and spicy concoction is a brunch staple, and St. Barth's take on this classic drink is truly exceptional. Our favorite spot for enjoyng a delicious bloody is at Pearl Beach.  A combinaton of the crashing waves, feet in the sand and Julian's delicious concoction of vodka, fresh tomato juice, tobasco and lots of fresh lemon makes for a truly unforgettable experience.
Cheers to a memorable experience filled with sun-kissed beaches and tantalizing libations!  xo MB
