Is there any better accompaniment to the Bajan lifestyle than the refreshing taste of a handcrafted cocktail?

Generous amounts of rum, rainbow-coloured fruits, tropical melodies and the smiling faces of servers – calling Barbados’ bar scene lively would be an understatement. But if it’s classic or creative cocktails you’re looking for, you don’t have to venture far from the luxury of your room. We’ve scoured drinks menus from across the island to bring you four of our favourite drinks that promise to quench your thirst in the Caribbean sunshine.

Cocktails at Fairmont Royal Pavilion

Barbados Punch

Ingredients: Spiced dark rum, triple sec, pineapple juice, orange and lime juice

Whether you’re elegantly perched beachside, or savouring the panoramic view from The Palm Terrace, Fairmont Royal Pavilion has plenty of space to indulge your tastebuds with a refreshing cocktail. We highly recommend pairing your Barbados Punch with one of the fresh, delicious dishes from Executive Chef Kirk Kirton’s exceptional menu.

Cobblers Cooler

Ingredients: Barbados Rum, Grenadine, fresh banana, orange and pineapple

Celebrated hotel Cobblers Cove knows exactly how to celebrate Bajan culture. Friday nights are filled with Calypso and Caribbean cuisine, while the Easy Sunday Barbecue serves up fresh seafood, mouthwatering desserts and the sound of a steel pan band along the sands – where could better for a cocktail or two?

Lonestar Sunset

Ingredients: Southern Comfort, kola tonic, cherry brandy, orange juice and Angostura bitters

Still one of Barbados’ most renowned restaurants, favoured by celebrity clientele, The Lone Star Boutique Hotel & Restaurant transforms into a bustling hub every evening. This sophisticated setting has also introduced a new cocktail lounge, a dreamy spot for a sunset aperitif overlooking the white sands and glistening ocean waters.

The Green Flash

Award-winning restaurant Daphne’s is conveniently set between The House by Elegant Hotels and Tamarind by Elegant Hotels, with a prime waterfront position along Paynes Bay beach. Ensure you ask for table by the beach when you book – there’s nothing better than a soft sea breeze as you indulge in Italian fare and carefully crafted cocktails.
