New Orleans has the Hurricane, Havana has the Mojito, and Singapore has the Singapore Sling — so why shouldn’t the Grand Strand have its own signature cocktail? As a matter of fact, it does. And while the “Myrtle Mule” may not be an actual thing yet (that we’re aware of, anyway), there is a drink that’s exclusive to Long Bay Resort and its sister Brittain Resorts & Hotels properties in the Myrtle Beach area, and our guests just can’t seem to get enough of it.
Dubbed the Voodoo Bucket, the drink is a big hit at our Grand Strand resorts, and it’s served in a souvenir bucket with plenty of straws — perfect for sharing on a steamy day at the beach. To sweeten the deal even more, at Long Bay Resort’s on-site Tiki Bar, you and your drinking-age crew can enjoy your Voodoo Bucket poolside along with some breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
While we’re not ready to divulge the full recipe just yet, here’s a list of the ingredients found in the Voodoo Bucket to tempt your taste buds:
1.5 ounces of each of the following Cruzan Rum flavors:
Splash of cranberry juice
The Voodoo Bucket is a refreshingly cool treat that’s an ideal fit for a sun-soaked day by the pool or Atlantic Ocean at one of Brittain Resorts’ Myrtle Beach-area properties, but it’s not the only heat-beater on the menu at our resort bars and lounges. Enjoy one of these other great cocktails when you need to cool off during your Grand Strand getaway:
Rum Runner: features a combination of fruit juices (including lime, orange and/or pineapple, typically), along with dark and light rum, banana liqueur, and a splash of grenadine
Piña Colada: features rum (light is typical, with dark sometimes included), cream of coconut and pineapple juice mixed with ice
Original Margarita: features tequila, lime juice (typically) or lemon juice, and an orange-flavored liqueur, all served frozen or on the rocks, and often with salt on the rim of the glass
Sex on the Beach: features vodka, peach schnapps, orange or pineapple juice, and cranberry juice, all combined and served over ice
