In the early '70's, we took our 2 little girls and stayed in "thatched hut" looking room in Runaway Bay. One VERY hot day, we toured a plantation on an open flatbed, and on the way home, stopped in Montego Bay for a quick lunch. The waiter noted our flushed faces, and in the local lilt, offered us a SKA. It looked like a tall cool glass of lemonade, and was so smooth and delicious, we asked for a refill. He laughed and said -No more until you eat at the buffet ! We realized WHY, when we stood - but did enjoy another later. Have been drinking them ever since, with happy memories ! (The girls drinks were without the rum). For a party, making 10 - 8 ounce drinks (or 18 - 6 ounce drinks), multiply everything by 8.

This is a wonderful drink. I used raspberry syrup that I made. Thanks NurseJaney :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap for July 2012

What a super drink, I really enjoyed this exotic drink. It made me feel like I was sitting on a beach, enjoying the sun and sipping on a fruity treat. I really enjoyed the combination of pineapple juice, lime juice and strawberry syrup. Thank you for sharing a new favorite rum cocktail.

This is a great drink! Smooth and sweet, easy to drink and enjoy. I used grenadine instead of strawberry syrup as that's what I had on hand. This could easily be made by the pitcher and enjoyed at BBQ, the beach, or anywhere. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
