Finally, a product that makes homemade Painkillers easy. Cream of Coconut in a squeeze bottle. No more half used cans in the refrigerator that you end up tossing. And this stuff doesn’t clump up or get hard in the refrigerator either. Always ready. Here’s a Painkiller refresher course for you.
A healthy dose of rum…
Two good squeezes of Goya Squeez-It Cream of Coconut…
A splash of pineapple juice…
A splash or orange juice….
Tossed vigorously back and fourth between two glasses to give it that foamy, creamy feel…
Stuck in legislation that extended Bush era tax cuts and raised taxes on high income earners was an extension of the Virgin Islands’ beloved Rum Tax, or officially the Rum Excise Tax Cover-Over.
It’s a fascinating piece of legislation. Uncle Sam collects a $13.50 per gallon tax on rum produced in the Virgin Islands and sold in the states, and sends $13.25 of it straight back to the USVI government…to use as it chooses.
It dates back to 1954 for the Virgin Islands (and 1917 for Puerto Rico), and it generates about $115 million a year for the USVI government.
If you’re looking for a little light lunchtime reading, learn the history of the Rum Tax here. Cheers!
If you’re a big group, or you’re just a couple who doesn’t want to bust the budget on a charter by yourselves, check out Lovango Charters’ Seabiscuit.
Capt. Dan Boyd will be happy to take you where you want to go, but he loves his trips circumnavigating St. John with snorkel stops in places you’ve probably never been and lunch someplace like Miss Lucy’s or Shipwreck Landing.
Dan likes to keep his St. John day trips to about 16 people, but he’ll go with less and he can certainly handle more. You can even check with him a couple of days before you want to go out to see if he’s got space available.
Meet Capt. Dan and get a look at Seabiscuit, below…
