“My husband and I found this beverage while on vacation with our four children to Amelia Island. We had been touring the ruins on the island and were exhausted at the end of the day when we came across this little pirate place. I’m not sure if it was truly the best  drink we ever had, but in our memories it was. After returning home, we started looking for something similar, and after many attempts of drinks that didn’t quite hit the mark, we finally found the perfect one! It reminds us of a great vacation we had in a time of our lives when we rarely were able to get away. We love to serve this drink at parties, but beware – it’s silent but deadly.” – Tracie LeSar
