Find fresh cocktail drinks poolside at Opal Collection properties, whether you’re in Southern Florida or Down East Maine.
SOJO Sangria [Naples, FL]
Perch yourself next to the marble Pool Bar at the Edgewater Beach Hotel, and grab some shade under the surrounding palm trees as you take a sip of this citrus-infused light red wine. Bacardi O orange rum and organic agave juice give the mixed lemon, orange, and grape flavors a kick that you’ll feel, too.
Cracked Peppercorn Tom Collins [Lake George, NY]
Caldwell’s Lobby Bar offers you the opportunity to grab your cocktail of choice and retire to the poolside. This one mixes crisp Hendricks gin, lemon juice, agave juice, and the namesake cracked peppercorn to add a little spice and crackle to the proceedings.
Day at the Beach [Clearwater, FL]
The white sandy shores of Clearwater Beach sit just steps from the custom-designed beachside pool, and both are best experienced with slow sips from this sweet and fruity Day at the Beach cocktail at Sandpearl Resort. It’s an afternoon escape in a glass made with Malibu coconut rum, amaretto, and orange juice with a splash of grenadine.
The Celtic Crush [Bar Harbor, ME]
West Street Hotel has a seemingly endless rooftop infinity pool with panoramic views of Frenchman Bay, and you’ll want to soak them in with the help of Paddy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant’s “Celtic Crush,” their version of an adult orange soda. It blends Grey Goose Vodka with peach schnapps, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, organic agave nectar, and Valencia orange juice.
Honey Badger Sour [North Palm Beach, FL]
The menu boasts that this drink doesn’t care, but chances are you’ll appreciate the fresh agave sour mix, honeyed Jack Daniel’s whiskey, and fresh mint sprigs that animate this ferocious cocktail at Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa’s The Sandbar. Take a seat at the oceanfront pool, stare out over the roaring Atlantic, and wrestle with one of the more ambitious concoctions on the Opal Collection drink list.
