    Lots of hotels had banned serving them (holiday inn,riu negril) because either too potent or the flame but you should try it or two or three. Amazing drink.

    The comment by "Rain," the Jamaican fellow, was a low blow to the many tourists that bring in millions of dollars, so that many Jamaicans can be meaningful employed. Shame on you!

    I had TEN of these at the pool bar while in Jamaica three days pretty and yet so powerful. Wow!! Also, I was told that you put some of the white rum in between the shots colors so it wouldn't blend, and you have to put it in S-L-O-W-L-Y!

    I was in Jamaica last year. People are great. The Jamaican flag is green for the vegetation, yellow for the sun that always shines, and black for the people, when the red it add it is a reggae thing. I will try a Bob Marley this year.
