The mystique of a nude beach. Close your eyes tight enough and you can almost see those oiled up supermodels and beefy guys soaking in UV-rays where the sun don’t usually shine. Alas, the reality of a nude beach is much MUCH different. Let’s just say the people baring it all are the people that should be putting their special parts under lock and key.
We have a nude beach here in Southwest Florida. I’ve walked its shores a couple times (with trunks on, sorry ladies), and was quickly frightened. Run, hide, eyes are burning! Maybe it’s different on St. Martin’s Orient Beach or the sands of St. Barths, maybe some of you Castaways with experience on the nude beaches of the Caribbean can let us know what the scenery is like.
Today’s Boat Drink recipe is fittingly called The Nude Beach. The original recipe called for 1oz. of Gold Rum, then the usual Pineapple Juice, Orange Juice, Grenadine and Lime Juice. To me that seemed a little boring and didn’t have anything to do with a nude beach. What do you say we spice it up a bit.
First of all 1 ounce of rum is for beginners, we Castaways
need require a little more octane, let’s double it and make it a even 2 ounces of rum. Then instead of your normal everyday gold rum, let’s replace it with a rum that has no problem with limin’ in the buff…Ron de Jeremy Rum.
