"Once You Go You Will Know" - Red Stripe light will most likely work best for you. Dirty Bananas good and my favorite while in the Tropics a "Pina Colada". Never have one at home and always indulge when on the Island. Blended drinks also stay refreshingly cooler than a beer!!

weezy67...Strawberry Daiquiri's, but ask for it with Rum Cream instead of Rum...so delish. I second the Dirty Bananas recommendations as well. Stop at the pool bar nearest to the quiet end of the pool and ask Lloyd for his "Lloyd special"...mmmm. All this talk about my favorite drinks has me wishing I was there. Who am I kidding...I ALWAYS wish I was still there :)

In my experience, each Negril bartender has a "special" drink.

That said, here is a list of "asked for" drinks and how to make them: www.dennyp.com/recipesdrinks/drinks.htm

Fortunately, Jamaican beer tastes much better than Coors, Bud, etc.

The "national" beer is Red Stripe which is a bottom brewed lager.

It also has ales (top brewed) but they are harder to find at a resort bar and smaller pubs.

There is an Ale called Dragon Stout.

The brewery for Red Stripe also has license for Heineken, Guinness Stout, McEwans.
