Top 7 Beach Drinks

The sun is warming your skin, the sound of the ocean waves puts you in a state of tranquility, yet something can make this scenario even better: a tropical drink! Here is a list of the top 7 drinks that complete the beach or poolside paradise during adult holidays.

Margarita – Jimmy Buffet would agree, this classic drink never seems to fail. Have your margarita on the rocks or frozen, with salt or without, this cold lime refresher pairs with the beach the best. Ingredients include tequila, Triple Sec, and lemon lime juice.

Piña Colada- This drink truly presents the taste of the Caribbean! There is nothing like a frozen coconut and pineapple combo with a (large) splash or rum. Commonly comprised of ice, coconut milk, pineapple juice, and rum.

Strawberry Daiquiri- For those with a sweeter tooth, the Strawberry Daiquiri is a frozen fruity option. Most common ingredients: ice, Triple Sec, rum, fresh strawberries and lime juice.

Bahama Mama- This beach classic combines the sweet taste of pineapple with the tangy sensation of orange for a tropical mix. Regular rum, a coconut rum, Grenadine, orange juice, pineapple juice and ice make up this beachy favorite.

Sex on the Beach- Its risqué name gets this drink some serious attention, and pretty much says it all. If you’re looking for a tropical peachy beverage this one is for you. It usually contains vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice, and orange juice.

Lava Flow- This drink is native to Hawaii where real lava flow was a reality for the volcano formed islands. Full of real strawberries, this drink is more on the fun side. Ingredients commonly used are ice, light rum, coconut rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, strawberries and sometimes banana.

Sunset Beach If the sun is setting why not have a drink to compliment the mood! This drink wraps up a sunny day and welcomes the evening fun. A Sunset Beach usually has coconut rum, raspberry liquor, orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, and grenadine all over ice.
