When I think of The Caribbean Islands or Mexico… an image conjured up is always a fancy little drink with a fruit wedge and a little umbrella. Ahhhh… paradise sitting on the beach, feet up with one of these in my hand.
If you don’t know what to order, or even if you have a drink at home, when in resort always ask the bartender what their specialty is or what the specialty of the hotel is. Most of them have one. It’s always fun to try new things and watching the bartender make the drink is usually half the fun. Most places even have a kids drink menu or kids specialty drink as well. My son loves to try them all.
If you don’t like hard alcohol (I know I just can’t do it) you can always try one of the non alcoholic drinks or a local beer. I love strawberry daiquiris sans the alcohol during the day on the beach or at the pool. Or try a local libation: The Bahamas has Kalik Beer, Jamaica has Red Stripe, the Dominican Republic has Presidente, and we all know that Mexico has Corona – but they also have Dos Equis, which is popular at many of the hotels and restaurants.
So what’s your favorite drink on vacation?
P.S. Remember drink responsibly and not in the sun!
