It took a [tourism board-sponsored] trip to the beautiful island of Curacao for Bachelorette Emily Maynard to decide which of the remaining contestants she would send home last night. By all accounts it was a difficult and tearful choice, resulting in the elimination of 28-year-old insurance agent Sean. Hm…jetting off to the Caribbean and choosing from three gorgeous men that are in love with you? Yes, you’ve got it so rough, Em. We should all be so lucky.

Meet Emily Maynard’s 25 suitors. You know, in case you missed the first 23 of them.


Sadly, we aren’t. So in my opinion, a cocktail made with Blue Curacao is the next best thing. Here are some drink ideas from Dekuyper to bring the island to you.
