Beachside Cocktails – love a good sip?

Beachside relaxation is becoming more frequent among travellers. Thanks to that trend, you will see more and more beachside cocktails being introduced.

1

Piña Colada, Puerto Rico

Piña Colada, Puerto Rico

You have probably tasted this already, but if you have not tasted this in Puerto Rico itself, you are yet to taste the best flavour. The cocktail is made of coconut, pineapple and Piña Colada, an indigenous rum variety. Although Piña Colada was already popular among the locals, it was Monchito Marrero who softened this drink with the addition of smooth coconut cream. Thanks to his efforts, the cocktail is famous all across the world.

Caipirinha, Brazil

Caipirinha, Brazil

When you go to Brazil, you can see caipirinha at almost every seaside café. The drink is mostly made of mango, cashew fruit, passion fruit or kiwi. The handpicked fruit mixed with sugar, lime and cachaça which is fermented from sugarcane, makes the drink unique.

The Maldivian Lady, Maldives

The Maldivian Lady, Maldives

Made from apricot brandy, orange and pineapple juice, skinned white rum and one slice of pineapple (or cherry), this cocktail is available at almost any part of the Maldives. Restaurants usually offer you their own take on the drink. For instance, if you have a unique taste of the Maldivian Lady at Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, you will have different experience at another restaurant. The Maldivian Lady is best sipped during the sunset after a day full of activities in order to both relax and rejuvenate you at the same time.

Red Stripe Beer, Jamaica

Red Stripe Beer, Jamaica

This beer is claimed to have been brewed on an island in Kingston for the first time. The beer, very much popular in the US, is best tasted along with a salty snack. It will enhance your mood when you have it with a few close friends. The beer has a malting-sweetness which gives the lager a crisp nature.

5

Mai-Tai, Polynesia

Mai-Tai, Polynesia

How it was named Mai-Tai is interesting. This cocktail made of orange curacao, rum, lime and orgeat syrup had no initial name as such. But upon tasting, a guest had naturally said 'maita'i ro'a 'ae' which means 'out of this world'. Since then everyone was comfortable with giving that name to the cocktail.

6

Daiquiri, Cuba

Daiquiri, Cuba

Daiquiri consists of three essential ingredients: sugar, rum and lime. Interestingly John F Kennedy is said to have been tasting daiquiri while he beat his opponent in the run for US presidency. That limey-white spirit poured into a tall slim glass contains much more of a punch han it looks to have. And today Americans prefer the cocktail in its original fruit flavour and the frozen form.

Margarita, Mexico

Margarita, Mexico

Although Margarita is known as Mexican, its origins cannot be traced to the country. There is a mystery woven around the origins of this delicious cocktail. There are many tales of origin in fact. Margarita has three essential ingredients: lime, tequila and cointreau. Not only in Mexico, but in most parts of the world you can simply order this drink, though taste can vary from one restaurant to another.
