The Bahamas most famous cocktails is the Bahamian Goombay Smash filled with the tastes and colors of the islands.
I had my first Goombay Smash a couple of years ago when we spent Christmas with my son’s fiancé’s family home on the Island of Eleuthera, Bahamas.
Eleuthera is one of the out islands of the Bahamas and is only 110 miles in length. With it’s unique long thin shape, it is only a mile wide in some areas. It has over 200 miles of shore line and is offers an untouched beauty of the “real Bahamas”. The Bahamian Goombay Smash is a favorite in the Bahamas and can be found on almost any bar or restaurant menu. Once you take your first sip, you’ll know why it’s so popular.
This drink reminds me of the famous Bahamian street parades with bright colors, lively music and the most detailed and colorful floats and costumes you have even seen. If you ever visit the islands, be sure to drink a strong but fruity Goombay Smash and don’t miss Junkanoo.
