The Island Boy Cocktail Recipe: Boat Drinks

After one sip, you’ll be in search of an old blue chair.

Today’s Boat Drink recipe comes to us from Castaway Mixologist Jeremy McDaniel, it’s called the Island Boy and is made with Chesney’s Blue Chair Bay Rum. Basically I think it’s a call for help from the harsh winter that Jeremy and many of you have experienced. Here’s what he had to say about this week’s rum recipe.

It’s been a while! I blame it on this terrible winter, it’s ALMOST crushing my Caribbean soul! Well I’m ready to rum it up again (screw you old man winter!). The inspiration for this one comes from Kenny’s “Island Boy”, especially the lines, “Watches the snow on CNN, with all his dope smokin’ friend, just look at the hell they must be in”. Enjoy and here’s to snow melting!

It sounds like someone is in need of a little time in the lower latitudes. Stay warm Jeremy, cause the only thing that melts down here is the ice in my rum punch!

Island Boy Drink Recipe


  • 1oz Blue Chair Bay white rum
  • 1/2oz Blue Chair Bay Coconut rum
  • 1/4oz Banana liqueur
  • 1 1/2oz Pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2oz Simply Orange w/ Banana
  • Splash Cream of Coconut

Mixing Instructions: Shake all with cracked ice, strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Raise glass and toast.

I have a feeling you guys are going to like the Island Boy cocktail. Let me know what you think after you’ve mixed one or two up!

    The “medication” for my “tropical condition” will be provided this April in Cancun, Mexico! Until then your site will do! I’m hoping to bring back some Mexican Rum (yes such a thing does exist!) or Havana Club! Keep up the great work!

    This is DANGEROUS!!! Can’t really taste the rum/alcohol – and not overly fruity or sweet. Will DEFINITELY make this one again! Thanks for sharing 🙂
