Gambia's No. 1 Online Business Directory


BAES Brew, or the Witches’ Healthy Brew, is a concoction that we came up with as a class assignment for Halloween in BAES, the American School in Gambia. At the time, the school was across the street from the Bakau Army barracks – some of my fondest memories remain on those grounds.

5 Minutes



2 cans of Perrier (4x 330ml)

2 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice

100cl of freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons of plastic bugs

4 glasses of ice cubes

A few drops of green food colouring


1. Gently mix the juices and the water together.

2. Fill four glasses with ice cubes.

3. Pour the juice & water over the ice and sprinkle a few bugs in each glass.

4. Put 2 drops of food colouring in each glass, do not mix!

5. Serve immediately.
