The smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, St. John’s is known for the pristine national parkland that occupies two-thirds of its surface. There’s also great diving to take in the abundant sea life around its neighboring coral reefs. While St. John isn’t recognized for rum production, it’s still an excellent place to indulge in a frosty rum drink like this blended version of the classic Painkiller.
