TASTY YACHT COCKTAILS

When you decide to take a yacht out on the water, the alcohol choices should be epic! The drinks depend on what the people on the boat may like, but a tropical drink is usually a good choice to start out with. A ‘Daiquiri’ is a good place to start. It’s tangy with a kick; it’s also a great way to use fresh fruit. It’s made with 1 cup fresh peaches (peeled and sliced), 1 cup fresh strawberries, 1 cup fresh mango (cut into cubes), 1 cup seeded watermelon, 6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate (thawed), 6 oz. light rum, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and 2 cups of ice cubes. In a blender, add all of the fruit, lemonade, rum, and powdered sugar. Blend until smooth; gradually add ice, allowing the mix to churn more before adding more. Repeat the adding of the ice until you get the consistency you desire, and enjoy.

A ‘Bahama Mama’ is a fun drink to have and say. It’s a classic drink to have while relaxing watching a sunset. It’s made with ½ oz. light rum, ½ oz. dark rum, ½ oz. 151 rum, ½ oz. coconut rum, 1 oz. pineapple juice, ½ oz. orange juice, a dash of grenadine, and crushed ice. Add all of the liquid ingredients except the grenadine into a shaker with some ice, shake for 20 seconds, and then pour the drink into a glass filled with crushed ice. Add the grenadine on top and serve. Try a ‘Mai Tai.’ It packs a great punch, and is perfect for socializing. It’s made with ½ oz. Amaretto, 1 oz. light rum, ½ dark rum, 1 oz. pineapple juice, 1 oz. sweet & sour mix, ½ oz. Triple Sec, and crushed ice. Mix all of the ingredients except the ice together until combined thoroughly, and then pour over ice. Have a great yacht party!
