Nilla Killa

Visiting White Bay on Jost Van Dyke for the first time was a trip. Our boat pulled up to this incredibly beyond believable gorgeous white crescent of sand as we “rapped” I’m on the Boat (very badly I admit).

As we anchored, Captain Darrel told us that we should visit Soggy Dollar Bar and order a “Nilla Killa”. Don’t think we even asked what was in it – it sounded good. “Wicked good” said Darrel. Darrel asked if we wanted to dinghy in. Dinghy in???? This is the home of the Soggy Dollar Bar – we had to swim in with our soggy dollars to get the full effect – right?

Anyway – great day, great drink. Soggy Dollar’s Nilla Killa recipe is TOP secret according to Mic – the bartender, so of course we set out to re-create it as closely as we could remember it when we got home. You can let us know what you think. If only it came with that incredible view! Enjoy!

  1. Just got back from St John and the first thing I did was Google the Nilla Killa recipe. I tried yours and it is spot on. One thing, however, I followed the recipe to a tee and only got one serving.

    We love this recipe and it’s just like we remember! Note about servings: we just use a shot glass as the “ounce” and it works the same way. Replace one shot for every ounce in the recipe and the formula is the same – same parts juice to alcohol to coconut. This ends up making about 4 servings – a little more depending on ice and size of glass.

    The Nilla Killa is to die for. I first saw the recipe on FaceBook, I had to try it.
