When you think of sipping a cool drink in the Caribbean, you might be thinking about piña coladas, daiquiris, maybe a dark and stormy..

Well, in the Bahamas, the traditional adult beverage of choice is Gully Wash – A sweet, creamy, coconut flavored concoction made from fresh coconut water, condensed milk, and a whole bunch of other things.

Also known to some as ‘Sky Juice,’ Gully Wash is a fan favorite here at Andros South, and if you ask really nicely, our staff will even whip up a batch from our own coconuts. Here’s how it’s prepared.
