Impress your party guests with these awesome resort cocktails

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

TORONTO — Let’s not kid ourselves, one of the best parts of an all-inclusive vacation is the drinks.

From margaritas and mojitos to daiquiris and mai tais, the open-bar concept at all-inclusive resorts is simply too hard to resist. And for some reason, whether it’s the laidback vibe of a resort or the sweetness of local ingredients, a cold, refreshing drink always seems to taste better while on vacation.

But now there’s an easy way for you to recreate your vacay memories at home – all you need is some ice, a few ingredients and a shaker.

In celebration of National Cocktail Day (March 24), Allegro Hotels, Barceló Hotels & Resorts, Occidental Hotels & Resorts, Resorts World Bimini and Royal Hideaway Playacar have all released the recipes of some of their best tropical cocktails. Although they won’t be served poolside by a charming butler or handed to you across a swim-up bar, these tasty concoctions will be the highlight of any party and transport you and your guests back to sunnier times.
