Happy Hour Frozen Painkillers from The Longboard on St. John
If you want to visit the home of the Painkiller, you’d better plan to get wet. With no dock in sight, customers swim ashore from boats anchored in White Bay to the Soggy Dollar bar on the coast of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Slapping down water-logged bills (the inspiration behind the bar’s name) gets you a taste of the Soggy Dollar’s top-secret 1971 original recipe. At The Longboard, a cantina on St. John, owner Clint Gaskins blends dark rum, cream of coconut, and fresh pineapple and orange juices into a frozen variation all the more suited to Caribbean beaches. —Chris Hughes
