The Bahama Breeze cocktail starts working its refreshing magic on one as soon as they hear its name. Just like its name implies, this cocktail is a deliciously sweet, light, and chilled thirst-quencher that will invigorate the mind after a tiring day at work and refresh just about anyone.
The Bahama Breeze is a veritable fruit cocktail in the form of a drink, and it comes at the cost of a lot more recipes than your average cocktail. And yet, its deliciously sweet flavours and boozy nature make it more than worth it. As it ranks among the more popular Caribbean cocktails, it can be enjoyed at just about any bar worldwide because it is a global favourite, particularly at beachy getaways and places where the sun is out for most of the year.
The name itself indicates that this cocktail is best enjoyed out under the sun. Whether you’re at the beach or indoors at a stuffy gathering, this chilled cocktail will bring you to life and electrify your soul with its icy cold fruitiness. The Bahama Breeze unites pretty much every Caribbean fruit flavour in one glass, including bananas, coconut, orange, pineapple and lemon, with honey to add to the sweetness. Made with – you guessed it – coconut rum and a number of other fruity liqueurs, it is definitely one of those cocktails which you must try before you die.
