This week’s exciting rendition of our exclusive #BringingParadiseToYou blog series is all about the one and only British Virgin Islands (BVI)—our flagship charter base, the holy grail of yachting destinations, and the ultimate “home away from home” for Moorings guests. As our unified nation continues searching for ways to stick together while staying apart, we hope the items below will spread a little joy into your lives and help keep you in good spirits in the weeks to come.
NEW Photo Hunt Game
If you’ve ever played the arcade version of “Photo Hunt” in a dive bar, you know just how fun and addicting it can be, and that’s why we’ve created our very own photo hunt game for you featuring one of our all-time favorite BVI beach bars—Foxy’s! So focus your peepers on the two images shown above and see if you can spot all 10 differences. To view the answer key, simply click on the link here.

“Painkiller Pops” Recipe
We know you are no stranger to the BVI’s world-famous Painkiller cocktail, so we’re sharing a fun new way to enjoy this tropical concoction at home with our “Painkiller Pops” recipe. I mean honestly—what better way to “chill out” and chase your troubles away than with a frozen version of your favorite Caribbean rum drink?! Here’s how to make it…
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
(Yield: about 6 popsicle sized servings)
- 7 ½ ounces pineapple juice
- 1 ½ ounces coconut milk
- 1 ½ ounces orange juice
- 1 ½ ounces dark rum (We are partial to Soggy Dollar Rum)
- ½ cup crushed pineapple
- ½ cup simple syrup or agave nectar
- Grated nutmeg (optional)
Mix or blend together the pineapple juice, coconut milk, orange juice, rum, crushed pineapple, and simple syrup.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze overnight or until frozen.
If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can also use disposable plastic/paper cups (which can be peeled off before serving) or glass/plastic tumblers from your cupboard (run the cup under some warm water to remove before serving). With either of those options, create your own “stick” using standard popsicle sticks, reusable plastic straws, utensils, or chopsticks.
And if all else fails, freeze the mixture in a Tupperware container, thaw until scoopable, serve in bowls, and enjoy your Painkiller slushies with a spoon!
