    I don't drink alcohol, but my friends all loved them when we were there. I think he had two in his hands all the time. At dinner he would have three lined up.

    I don't want to know either but saw that awful number before I knew it ........ DARN ....... The last thing I want to be doing while I'm destressing at CN is counting calories ...... There aren't suppose to be any calories in paradise ...... There's enough time for that in everyday real life.

    Default many calories !!!!! no thanks x you could eat loadsa food for that

    Who cares how many are in paradise. I say that if you are counting them that close while on vacation, then you don't understand what vacation is for. The only way I could see counting calories while I was at CTI is if I was spending more than one week there......EVERY MONTH OF THE YEAR!!!!!!! Drink 50 of them while you are there and then hit it hard at the gym when you get home.

    My wife doesn't drink all that much. Last week while at CN, she asked a bartender for a sweet drink with rum cream. He served her a Dirty Banana. Let's just say, my wife MAY have become an alcoholic over our visit. Kidding of course. My point is, she drank an awful lot of those drinks. They were wonderful!

    My husband just called them breakfast. It has fruit and dairy so that counts right?? He actually had them add a coffee liquor to his for an extra punch and really enjoyed them.

    Thanks for the recipe! I agree with the "no calorie counters" here. When we were at CSA my two buddies and I went golfing and got back for lunch at Patios. We ordered a round of Red Stripes and then followed them up with 3 rounds of Hummingbirds. I'm sure a Hummingbird has just as many calories as a Dirty Banana. Calories be damned...we were on vacation and thirsty...<smile>. You have to make every moment count when you're in Paradise!

    Hmmmmm. That must account for a good portion of the extra five pounds we gain while on vacation. Good thing we diet before we go.

    Haven't you heard???,...vacation calories don't count!!!

    They sound amazing!!! I'm currently trying to do a preemptive strike on my weight - so get below my usual so when I put on weight over the two weeks it's not too disasterous and I can still fit into my clothes when getting on the plane. From the sound of these, I'll need to set my target a couple of pound lower!!!

    Oh - just looked at the ingredients again and it has rum - which I can't drink at all Would they customise the drink - either leaving the rum out or replacing it with something else? Like the idea of a coffee liquer in it

  17. #17


    They will customize anything for you! I have found that a lot of the bartenders have their own specialties or favorite drinks to make and it's fun to try the different ones. I can't speak for CTI or CSS, but at CSA they have a drink menu at each bar that you can pick from and find fun drinks. CN had some, but not at every bar.

    My personal favorites are the purple rain & vodka ting.

    Yes. They will make it however you want. I have them made without simple syrup and they are still delicious.

    I'm sure they will make it any way you like as long as they have the ingredients.

  20. #20


    Yes they will definatly customise it. Just tell them what you want. The bartenders at Couples are the greatest!!
