Great Beach Cocktails

Enjoy a nice cool drink while in the sun on the beach.

There are plenty of ideas that don’t include alcohol for those who don’t imbibe and for those that do there are plenty of ways to make the best beach drinks!

Here’s a fruity lemonade that everyone can enjoy:

Strawberry Melon Lemonade

  • 8 cups cubed and seeded watermelon
  • 1 cup strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups water

(you may substitute Sprite or 7-up instead of water)

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  If you freeze the melon cubes beforehand you will have a much  more slushy drink.  This can easily be made into an alcoholic drink by adding a jigger of rum to each cup or other liquors such as vodka, tequila.  

Another fun way to enjoy a nice cool drink on the beach with little trouble to prepare is to add lemon or lime to beer and enjoy!  Simple and tasty.  The beer should be ice cold.

Try adding rum to pineapple juice for a simple tropical drink.  Ever try Sangria?  This is a delicious and easy way to enjoy fruit and wine:


  • One 750 ml bottle of Red Wine (cabernet works well)
  • slices of orange, lemon, lime
  • 2 c ginger ale
  • 1 shot rum (or more)

Mix liquid ingredients.  Add ice, you can experiment with other flavors of wine, soda, or add different fruit juices.
