Destin’s Sunsets & Sunrises

Our sunsets and sunrises here at the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin, Florida, are some of the best on earth.

In the morning, the black, star studded blanket of night, slowly turns a stunning shade of purple as the sun begins to peek up from the glittering waters of the Gulf.

In the evening, the setting sun blazes across the horizon, painting the sky in amazing colors.  Gold, orange, purple, magenta, and maroon, reflect off the foamy waves, distorting the line between heaven and earth.

We really enjoy kicking back on one of our private balconies overlooking our coastal paradise, or relaxing on a soft blanket down by the shore. And of course, you have to have the perfect cocktail… not too heavy or too strong… and we, here at the Sea Oats, think we’ve got a great one.

The next time you’re staying with us along the Emerald Coast, let our caring staff set up a bottle of cold champagne with grapefruits in your room ahead of your arrival for your own personal showing.

Perhaps it’s the soft pink hue or the pulpy goodness that finds its way to the top of your glass, but we really love grapefruit mimosas. Its so quintessentially Florida. For an extraspecial morning brunch or evening gathering, mix together a pitcher of these, and you’ll wind up with a happy rosy cheek that matches your drink.


  • 8 large ruby red grapefruits
  • 1 bottle of prosecco, chilled


We used prosecco here, but feel free to use your favorite sparkling wine or champagne.

  1. Juice the grapefruits and pour into a large pitcher.
  2. Top with one-third to half the bottle of prosecco and save the rest for later.
  3. Drink up and enjoy the show.
