Nothing feels better than a little rest and relaxation on an island vacation.  In the meantime, no one is traveling to exotic locations so bring the faraway lands to you here in the Jupiter area.  Get the “I’ve escaped to a tropical location” feel with a cocktail or mocktail that feels like a getaway!

Tropical drinks serve two purposes. They can help you mentally escape to a sandy coast for a carefree sunny moment and refresh the body and soul after a long, warm day.  Try a Martha Stewart drink recipe today.

5 delicious getaway beverages to lift your spirit and take you away…

Pina Colada

A very rich and indulgent frozen beverage, too much for every day, is a “must have” to keep cool in the islands!  The coconut concoction is delicious as a mocktail too.  Don’t forget the tiny umbrella.


Hailing south of the border vibes, drink it frozen or not.  The tequila, orange liqueur, lots of lime juice and a glass rimmed with salt are a perfect complement to chips, big fresh bowl of guacamole and some spicy food.

Infused Water

A delicious alternative to an alcohol filled beverage is water.  Serve your H2O icy cold. Its so simple just use pure spring water infuse with slices of cucumbers, mint, oranges or any other fresh fruits in carafe. Serve over chipped ice and garnish with slices of pineapple, or any colorful produce of your liking. Refreshing!

Bahama Mama

With multiple types of rum, including coconut and 151, along with several types of citrus, the Bahama Mama is a shortcut to the tropics. Served in a vacation-ready hurricane glass, the bright red drink doesn’t pull any therapeutic punches.

Cuba Libre

If you need to escape the daily grind, free yourself with a tall glass of Cuban rum and Coca-Cola. Born in Havana, the Cuba Libre was created to celebrate the end of the Spanish-American War. It brings together the tastes of the island nation with the all-American soda, and it works equally well as a celebration of the end of the work week.
