    Default Mixed drink question.

    Is it true that when you order a mixed drink that they put cream or milk in it? Some one had mention it to us that they put it in all mixed drinks as a filler.

    If the drink requires milk, they put it in, but it is for taste, not for filler. There are plenty of drinks without milk.

    Never had cream or milk in a mixed drink while at Couples. They do use RUM cream which is nothing at all like milk -

    No worries!

    I am not sure I would like my Bloody Mary's or Ting & Grapefruit Juice, or Greyhounds with milk or cream. No they do not put milk or cream in every drink only drinks that require it and it's usually Rum Cream! mmmm good!

    I have heard that other resorts do water down their liquor and use fillers in their drinks, but NOT AT COUPLES!

    You will have a great time in Jamaica and rest assured that you have definitely chosen the right resort!!!

    If you find a drink is not strong enough for you, you can always request a Rum Runner or having the bartender pour additional Rum down the straw. BUT be careful. You will be surprised at how quickly some of the drinks "hit" you when you are in the sun all day. Make sure to keep hydrated with water also to keep from feeling miserable on your trip--an I am not referring to hangover. There is nothing worse than suffering dehydration on a Tropical Vacation. Been there, done that and it was downright miserable.

    There was another resort that we stayed at in Jamaica several years ago that did add milk to almost every single kind of drink you ordered ..... but it was not Couples. No worries about the drinks at Couples for sure.

    What Vickyj said is right on,, start your day with non-alcoholic drinks,and drink water or smoothies in between the "adult drinks".
    Enjoy your stay in heaven on earth..
    ARE WE THERE YET??

    No milk unless the recipe cals for it. Like Vicky said "keep hydrated". I try to use the "1 water for every 2 alcoholic drinks" rule. But honestly I usually end up [s]saying[/s] slurring - the crushed ice in this Vodka Slushy will do the trick!!!

    the bartenders do an excellent job of giving you the drink you want. You should have no worries!

    Do they have bottled water to bring you in between the REAL drinks? lol I learned after my first trip to the caribbean to have water between drinks to prevent dehydration..it sure can be nasty, and it took me a while to figure it out!
