What makes it tropical?
For everyone who lives under a rock, we’ll break it down and give you a few examples. Tropical drinks are drinks inspired by fruits and liquors you find in the tropics, which include: coconut, pineapple, mango, banana, citrus, and rum. We can get a little wild with our creations at Tipsy Bartender, so recipes vary. But those are pretty much the basics in flavor for tropical cocktails.Sooo… About those examples…
Don’t rush us, homeboy! We were getting there! For your tropical drinks basics, let’s start off with something mid-range: the Classic Mojito. This super simple yet satisfying tiki drink recipe requires some muddling of lime wedges, mint leaves, and simple syrup. But top that bad boy with white rum and club soda, and BAM! There you have it! It’s a fun and sexy drink that’s sweet, delicious, and perfect for any tropical occasion. But maybe the muddling is too intimidating. You can always check out our recipe for our Cuba Libre. It’s simply rum and cola, so there’s no way you can mess it up. If you really want to take the training wheels off your tropical drinks mixing, take a whack at our recipe for our Zombie. This tropical powerhouse packs a punch with both dark and overproof rum, apricot brandy, orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and grenadine. Other fun tropical basics include the Classic Pina Colada, Mai Tai, and Hurricane. If you master them all or are just feeling risky, this is Tipsy Bartender, so you know we have fun variations. Stay Tipsy!
