Indulging in food, drink and fun that is outside of your usual routine is one of the best parts of being on vacation, and few things commemorate Happy Hour like a local cocktail that captures the essence of the destination you are visiting. Here are a few of the best drinks in Providenciales–including signature cocktails–to try while you’re here and who serves them up best:
One of the best drinks in Providenciales to sip on the beach or during Happy Hour, rum punch is a favourite amongst locals and visitors alike. Caribbean Rum Punch is typically made with Turks and Caicos’ own Bambarra rum, orange juice, lime juice and Grenadine, but each mixologist might add their own signature twist. The resulting concoction looks like a sunset in a glass and tastes like pure vacation!
You can enjoy Rum Punch by the glass or by the pitcher from several restaurants, bars and vendors throughout Providenciales. Da Conch Shack, Flamingo Café, and Somewhere Café & Lounge are renowned for mixing them up best.
The best drink in Providenciales to salute the start of your Caribbean vacation is the classic favourite: Pina Colada! Traditionally made by blending crushed ice with three parts pineapple, one part rum and one part coconut cream until smooth, Pina Coladas are tropical perfection in a glass that first came to fruition in the Caribbean during the 1960s. To this day, the iconic Pina Colada is one of the most popular cocktails. In Providenciales, Hemingway’s on the Beach makes a great one! Bonus: Pina Coladas taste just as good without the alcohol!
Green Flash Pina Colada
Taste the Caribbean in every sip! The Green Flash Pina Colada is a signature cocktail offered at Provo’s Somewhere Café & Lounge and is an absolute delight to the senses. A signature twist on the classic that includes Bambarra rum and Midori, this Pina Colada is a delightful Turks and Caicos drink that truly represents the essence of a tropical vacation. Ask the bartender to mix you one!
Turk’s Head Brewery
Handcrafted right here in Providenciales and the Turks and Caicos Island’s only locally brewed beer, Turk’s Head Brewery is so delicious, you’ll want to take some home with you.
Choose between their delicious I-Ain-Ga-Lie Lager, Gon-Ta-Nort Amber Ale, Down-Da-Road IPA, I-Soon-Reach Light Lager or one of their seasonal ales.
You’ll find Turk’s Head Brewery served at several bars and restaurants throughout Provo. We suggest you enjoy one from Flamingo Café’s patio overlooking Grace Bay Beach.
Frozen Cocktails that Double as Dessert
If you’re seeking something to satisfy your sweet tooth and you can’t decide between a cocktail and ice cream, enjoy indulging in both with either of these decadent concoctions made by Sharkbite Bar & Grill.
This cocktail is a chocolate lover’s dream and is perfect for sharing–albeit, you probably won’t want to! Made with vodka, Bailey’s, Kahlua & Ice cream

A Refreshing Twist for Wine Lovers
While a glass of wine can be enjoyed just about any time of day, when you’re on the beach or coming in from an entire day in the sun, you’ll probably crave something that’s chilled to refresh you.
