A Ting With a Sting

I recently had the opportunity to enjoy a new rum drink on the island of St. Kitts. While staying at the St. Kitt’s Marriott Resort I learned about a drink called “A Ting With a Sting.”I  tasted this island rum drink and I have to say I’m a fan. But I’m even a bigger fan of “A Ting With a Sting and a Twist. Which I created by accident on my last day on St. Kitts.



 I was offered a chance to taste a shot of Brinleys Rum. There were three options, Brinleys traditional rum,  Brinleys Mango and Brinley’s Vanilla. I went for Vanilla and added my shot to a bottle of Ting.  Wow! It was good. Thus my drink,  A Ting With a Sting and a Twist of Vanilla.

 Ting With a Sting

1 Ting Grapefruit Soda

1 shot of rum

Pour over ice and enjoy

A Ting With a Sting and a Twist

1 Bottle of Ting Grapefruit Soda

1 shot of Brinley Vanilla Rum (This is hands down an amazing rum.)

Add ice and stir and you have a Ting With a Sting and a Twist of Vanilla!


*Other brands are not going to give you the same refreshing grapefruit flavor. Ting is made with local grapefruit from Jamaica and the nearby islands. There is also grapefruit pulp in the soda.  I’ve been exploring options since returning from St Kitts. and nothing tastes as good as Ting. For those of you in South Florida I was told Ting can be found at Publix. I’m searching….
