Celebrate National Rum Day With These Beach Themed Cocktails

It's right around this time of year that I, along with many others, start thinking about going on vacation. Ahhhh, I can see it now. The white sand beaches, the warm tropical sun, a crystal clear blue ocean only steps away and a beach themed cocktail in each hand; it really doesn't get much better than that. 

Travel May be Restricted but August 16 is National Rum Day

There is one tiny issue. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, travel is a bit restricted. These travel bans are a challenging roadblock that prohibit travel to many of the tropical destinations that fit the aforementioned descriptions. I know, it SUCKS! 

There is, however, one upside. Although you may not have crystal blue water, palm trees and white sand in your near future, it's not all that bad. You can still enjoy a tropical drink or five this summer. Turns out, the perfect day is right around the corner. August 16 is National Rum Day! Whether you start your day with a few hours on some waves, or just lounging in your backyard soaking up the summer sun, we’ve got a few recipes that are sure to give you those island vibes you’re craving in true après style.

Transport Yourself to the Islands With These Après Surf Cocktails

To help you celebrate, I've rounded up six beach-themed cocktails that are guaranteed to take your après surf game up a few levels. Each cocktail is from a tropical resort or restaurant that has those funky tropical vibes. You'll be blown away with fruity flavors and unique mixology applications that will make you feel the beachy breeze with each and every sip. Cheers!
