My biggest goal this summer is to enjoy a little rest and relaxation poolside with my family. With that goal comes the need for a cold, refreshing drink. Whether you prefer a grown up cocktail or a non-alcohol cocktail, this drink has you covered!
What You Need
Wondering what's in this sea breeze cocktail? I don't blame you.
All you need is your cocktail shaker, vanilla rum, almond liqueur, fruit juices, and you are minutes away from this easy breezy treat.
How to Make a Sea Breeze Cocktail
I've always been a fan of light, fruity drinks but this one blows other drinks out of the water! So, come whip up this cocktail and toast to the simple joys in life.
There is no treat more simple than this, pour all that deliciousness into your cocktail shaker, shake and into the glass it goes!
The almond liqueur adds a nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with the sweet vanilla rum. Paired with pineapple juice and a splash of cranberry, this drink is like a little vacation in a glass. A fun fruit garnish rounds out the sea breeze cocktail ingredients, making it not only tasty but fun to look at!
How Can I Make This a Mocktail?
To make this alcoholic drink kid-friendly, simply leave out the rum and add more pineapple juice. You can also make a non-alcoholic sea breeze drink by adding club soda or sparkling water in place of the rum. Garnish with a lime wedge and now the party can start!
What If I Don’t Have Vanilla Rum?
You can use regular rum and add in a bit of vanilla extract or flavoring, Voila!
Who doesn't want to float through summer with a drink like this in hand? Enjoy your Sea breeze cocktail and cheers!
