Five Florida Cocktails to Celebrate ABC Wine & Spirits Delivery in Florida

As we gear up to expand alcohol delivery with ABC Wine & Spirits in Florida’s coastal regions (from Daytona Beach to the Gulf Coast, and from the Space Coast to the Treasure Coast), we wanted to show our love for Florida with a round-up of five Florida cocktails from some of our favorite hangouts. After all, who doesn’t think of a refreshing drink when a lazy Florida beach day comes to mind?

Invented at the historic Holiday Isle Tiki Bar in Islamorada, Florida, the Rum Runner is unofficially Florida’s most famous cocktail. A refreshing mix of pineapple and orange juices, blackberry liqueur, banana liqueur, light and dark rums, grenadine, and a shot of Bacardi 151 on top, it’s quite frankly the perfect cocktail to sip on while basking in the warm sunshine.

When we’re craving a fruity drink, the daiquiri always comes to mind. Jimmy B’s Beach Bar in St. Petersburg, Florida, makes them just the way we crave them — sweet and tart. But it is also The Wet Spot that they’re known for, a drink that tastes just like a pina colada but with a blueberry twist. We’ll take whatever whets our whistle.

We go bonkers (er, Bongos) for anything tall and chilled, with a straw to sip from, so the Blue Hawaiian and Bongos Cool-Aid at Bongos Bar and Grille in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida, are just our kind of beach-side beverages. Extra whipped cream always makes things better, doesn’t it?

The Ice Plant is a St. Augustine Bar with style, substance, and high regard for pop culture. Since we also love all of these things, we couldn’t help but fall for the Patrick Swizzle, a drink featuring Rhum Clément, Earl Grey tea, fresh lemon, orange liqueur, and bitters. Yes, it tastes as good as it looks.

The 31 Supper Club in Ormand Beach, Florida, is a 1930s-inspired speakeasy serving handcrafted cocktails reminiscent of the Prohibition Era. We can’t get over The Bees Knees, featuring Hendrick’s gin, locally sourced honey, fresh lemon, and fragrant lavender, all served over the rocks. We’ve been serving up our own version at home — and needless to say, our friends have been impressed.
