I have little black book with the recipes to some amazing cocktails, but I know there is a bar full of other drinks that I know nothing about.  A great source of original island cocktails is on the island themselves, via the crazy creative island resort bartenders.

I asked Secrets Resorts to share the recipe for their famous Mango Tango blended cocktail so that you beach bums can try it at home.  Always a crowd pleaser, the Mango Tango is a combination of Strawberry Daiquiri and Mango Daiquiri. Secrets Resorts have world class accommodations in the Riveria Maya, Dominican Republic and Jamaica, so they know a thing or two about kicking back with a refreshing drink.
