Tips and tricks for making the perfect sunshine drink in the tropics

Making the perfect Tropical Sunshine Drink involves more than just pouring the ingredients into a glass. We’ll guide you through this journey with practical tips and tricks, and suggest food pairings to create a complete tropical experience.

How to make the perfect drink

  1. Choose fresh ingredients: The key to a refreshing and delicious tropical sun drink is to use fresh ingredients. Whether choosing tropical fruits or juice blends, the flavors are greatly enhanced by using freshly baked ingredients.
  2. Watch out for ice: Using ice carefully can make or break your tropical cocktail. If the drink is made too far in advance, the ice can dull the flavor. It is best to add ice before serving.
  3. Get creative with garnish: Exotic garnish can instantly elevate the look and mood of the drink. Give your drinks power with decorations like fruit slices, colorful cocktail umbrellas, or swizzle sticks.
  4. Use the right glass: The glass you serve your drinks with is important. It’s not just about presentation—it can also enhance the overall drinking experience. For example, smaller, wider cups are suitable for serving drinks on the rocks, while taller, slimmer cups are suitable for cold, refreshing drinks that use lots of ice
  5. Balance your taste buds: Striking a balance between sweetness, sourness and alcohol (if using) is important. Be sure to taste your drink before serving and adjust the ingredients as needed.

Basic guidelines for a day of drinking at the beach

  1. Drink the right things: It may be tempting to pull out tropical floats during beach days, but remember that too much alcohol can prevent you from swimming or recognizing dangerous situations
  2. Don’t Mix Drinks: Using different alcoholic beverages can lead to faster intoxication and possibly nasty embarrassment. Stick to one drink.
  3. Use sunscreen: Drinking alcohol can make your skin more susceptible to sunburn. Apply sunscreen and wear a hat when the sun is shining.
  4. Don’t drink and swim: Swimming while under the influence of alcohol can be dangerous as it affects your coordination and can lead to accidents.
