Forget about the weather or the energy spent doing water activities. You might want a peace and quiet time at the deck, lying on a sunbed, reading a book, or looking at the horizon while sipping a refreshing concoction of flavorful cocktails. Cruising won’t be complete without trying out the popular boat drinks that will surely make your sailing adventure more fun and exciting.
We have listed eight of the most requested boat drinks that will refresh you, lighten up the mood, and will make you say “this is life!”
The deliciously refreshing and infamous mojito is one of the oldest and all-time favorite refreshment. An invigorating drink with a little kick of rum makes this cocktail a top choice. Easy to mix, you just need soda water, rum, lemon, mint leaves, and ice.
Tall, appealing, and sinful! Pinacolada is another popular concoction enjoyed worldwide. The creamy coconut blended in rum and pineapple makes this a favorite tropical delight.
Craving for a chilled drink with a dash of sweetness? Then, bring out a premium vodka, add an exceptional lychee liqueur, and squeeze in some lemon. Lychee Caprioska is served super chilled, perfect for a hot afternoon!
French Martini is also a perfect summer refreshment when sailing. A fruity concoction with the right mixture of raspberry liqueur, vodka, and pineapple juice. It may have lost its traditional martini taste because it lacks vermouth as an ingredient but its a definite treat for a light and chill night mood.
St. Germain Sangria
St. Germain Sangria, a divinely fruity concoction that combines your favorite Sauvignon Blanc and elderflower liqueur. Stir in some apples, berries, and grapes, and garnish with a strawberry. You can also add some oranges for a citrus kick.
Served freshly made or frozen, Margarita is one of the most sought-after summer cocktails. It is a mix of fresh lime juice, tequila, and triple sec. Salt or sugar is added to the glass for an additional punch.
Dubbed as one of the sailor’s cocktail, Painkiller is a combination of rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut. Serve this cocktail with ice and a sprinkle of nutmeg for an amazingly different taste.
A fusion of aged rum, orange juice, orgeat almond syrup, orange curacao, sugar syrup, and ice. This exotic tropical drink will make you shout Mai Tai, meaning out of this world.
So rustle up a boat drink from your yacht charter crew and level up your relaxation experience with these cocktails. Sailing is best enjoyed with refreshing cocktails, uninterrupted private time, and million-dollar views.
