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. Have fun with your garnishes, like flavored salts, cayenne pepper particularly, fruits, colored sugars, sprinkles even edible orchids.
On a hot summer day, few drinks are as welcomed and as refreshing as a big tall glass of ice cold sweet tea. That love this sweet, brewed nectar of the gods(trees, it’s that important down here) inspired this fresh cocktail, perfect for a day on the beach or watching the sun go down from your private patio at the Sea Oats Motel.

- 1 part (50 ml) MALIBU ISLAND SPICED
- 1 part (50 ml) Iced tea
- 1 part (50 ml) Lemon juice

Don’t forget about the kids in your crew, grab a bottle of sparkling cider or make up a batch of classic kiddie cocktails like Shirley Temples or Rob Roy’s and let the kids have fun making up their own garnishes.
