What is sinobol in Martinique?

Refreshing Sinobol

The sinobol is a water ice covered with syrup. It is similar to the granita that we know more in metropolitan France. Refreshing, it is distinguished by its various colors and tastes: mint, orgeat, grenadine, lemon...

Where to enjoy a sinobol ?

To refresh yourself and enjoy a sinobol, head for the beaches of Martinique with your Europcar Martinique car rental.

Antillean ice cream is generally sold by street vendors located in the immediate vicinity of the beaches and in the streets most frequented by tourists who come to discover the subtleties of the island of flowers.

On the spot, the shopkeeper prepares the sinobol by grating a nice scoop of the ice cream and adding the syrup that will give it the flavor most to your taste: grenadine syrup, blackcurrant syrup, mint syrup...there is an embarrassment of riches to choose from! Once the sinobol is prepared, served in a large cup, all you have to do is sip it through a straw, on a bench or even on your beach towel and enjoy the moment and the pleasure !

If your residence is not close to tourist areas, don't hesitate to rent a car in Martinique to get around as easily as possible. If only to offer you a typically Creole refreshment during the high season ! Otherwise, if you have the time and the inclination to cook, there is nothing to stop you from making your own sinobol.
