Take a Scrumptious Sip of This Signature Grand Strand Cocktail

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, its does. And while the “Myrtle Mule” may not be a real thing yet (that we’re aware of, anyway), there is a drink that’s exclusive to North Beach Plantation and its sister Brittain Resorts & Hotels properties in the Myrtle Beach area, and our guests can’t seem to get enough of it.

Called the Voodoo Bucket, this drink is quite popular at our Grand Strand resorts, and it’s served in a souvenir bucket with plenty of straws — perfect for sharing on that hot day at the beach. To put the cherry on top, at North Beach Plantation’s huge, Caribbean-themed oceanfront pool deck, you and your drinking-age crew can splash on over and grab one at our top-shelf swim-up pool bar, which has been voted the best in the United States and No. 6 in the world by TripAdvisor.

We’re not going to give away the full recipe, but to tempt your taste buds, here’s a list of the ingredients found in the Voodoo Bucket:

1.5 ounces of each of the following Cruzan Rum flavors:

Pineapple rum
Mango rum
Dark rum
Coconut rum
Banana rum

Orange juice
Pineapple juice
Splash of cranberry juice

The Voodoo Bucket is a refreshing treat that’s a perfect fit for a sunny 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.
