When you’re out on an adventure with friends on a yacht, there are always abundant ways to have fun; making tasty yacht-inspired cocktails are just the beginning. For the best of the best, have a ‘Mojito.’ It’s literally the most common, yet fun and tasty cocktail to make. Island cocktails adopted this drink because it is so popular. It’s refreshing and versatile to say the least. Try a watermelon version to add a fun twist to it; it’s made with 1.5 cups of fresh, seedless watermelon (cubed), 5 mint leaves, ½ oz. lime juice, ½ oz. simple syrup, 2 oz. light rum, Club soda, and crushed ice. Muddle the watermelon cubes and mint leaves until the watermelon is crushed; add to a shaker with the lime juice and simple syrup. Shake that to combine, add the rum and some ice, and shake again. Strain the drink into a glass filled with crushed ice and add a bit of Club soda to top it off.
You literally can’t go wrong with a ‘Pina Colada.’ It’s a cocktail that many people enjoy any time of the year. While on a yacht, this drink will surely suffice to make all of your party guests happy. It’s a traditional boat drink that has withstood the test of time, and is perfect for a vacation. It’s made with 6 oz. dark rum, 8 oz. cream of coconut, 8 oz. pineapple juice, and ice. Combine all of the ingredients except ice in a blender; once the liquids have all been combined, fill the blender to the top with ice and blend until the mixture is a grainy texture. Serve in a chilled glass, and enjoy. Keep the fun going with these tasty drinks that add a lot of flavor and excitement to any yacht day.
