An Udder Delite – Discovering Boozy Milkshakes on the Path to Magens Bay

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

While Magens Bay was our destination of choice one afternoon during our St. Thomas vacation, it had been brought to our attention by a couple of people that we had to stop by Udder Delite because, well, … boozy milkshakes. Tying my propensity for posting pics of cocktails and writing about rum and beach bars to my supposed appreciation of products not normally associated with booze, we were encouraged, nigh, implored to check this...

I don’t know if the people behind the Plantation Rum cocktail competition at the Golden in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana planned to hold the event two days before National Rum Day but if they didn’t, I would just lie and claim that was the way they had it set up all along.

Mr. Sykes isn’t a stranger to the trop rock scene, having written...
