Another Refreshing Cocktail From Sea Oats!

Visiting the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast calls for a celebration!

After all, it’s not everyday that one gets to lounge away the hours, surrounded by pure white sand dunes, glowing turquoise waters and lush tropical foliage.

Here at the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin Florida, we know the key to any gathering, besides location which we have covered since we are as close to the water as you can be without needing an anchor, is amazing cocktails!

When you’re in Florida, you should take advantage of all the super yummy, super fresh citrus we are known for. That’s why we love this twist on the classic margaritas that everyone enjoys so much, plus you can adjust the recipe result to accommodate larger or smaller crowds.

Have fun with your garnishes, like flavored salts, cayenne pepper particularly, fruits, colored sugars, sprinkles even edible orchids. Follow our recipe for Grapefruit Margaritas and you’re sure to be the most popular person on the shore:


  • 1 quart ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 10 fresh mint leaves , torn in 1/2
  • 2 shots orange liqueur
  • 8 shots tequila

Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher and stir to combine. Pour over ice and serve.

A great place to enjoy your treat is right on your suite’s private balcony, overlooking endless stretches of our pristine beaches. Be sure to catch one of our fantastic sunsets.
