Feeling thirsty? Well, you’re in luck because on Alabama’s beaches we have several cocktails that not only taste good but also look fabulous in front of the camera!
Below are our top six most Insta-worthy cocktails in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. And, trust us, after reading this you’ll understand what all the buzz is about. Make sure to book a place to stay nearby while you check out these spots.
The Gulf’s Blackberry Mojito
There are few drinks that are more refreshing than a cold mojito on a warm summer day. At The Gulf in Orange Beach, their Blackberry Mojito is served with fresh blackberries, mint and lime in a crystal clear glass. Both delicious and Insta-worthy, it was a no brainer to put this cocktail on our list.
Beach House Kitchen & Cocktails Margarita
This Gulf Shores spot offers multiple delicious cocktails, but we love the scratch margarita. It's made with Camarena reposado tequila, house-made orange liqueur, freshly squeezed lime, simple syrup and Bittercube orange bitters and is served on the rocks with pink Himalayan salt. What more could you ask for in a margarita?
Flora-Bama’s Infamous Bushwacker
Often referred to as an “adult milkshake,” the Flora-Bama’s Bushwacker is the perfect blend of several kinds of liquors, liqueurs and milk. Topped with a sweet cherry and a rum floater (if you dare), it makes for the cutest concoction to throw up on your story and let everyone know you’re having the time of your life!
Craft Beers at Big Beach Brewing Co.
You might find it peculiar that we’re dubbing a beer as an Insta-worthy cocktail…but, hear us out! Snapping a fan-favorite photo is not always just about the subject but rather the backdrop. Imagine snapping a picture of your glass on a deck overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway, in-front of a brick fireplace, on top of a smooth wooden countertop or getting funky and swinging it on a tire swing. You can do all that and more at Big Beach!
Playa’s Pink Pineapple
Did someone say “tequila”? Playa, located at Sportsman Marina in Orange Beach, is well-known for being one of the best spots to get a delicious meal and an equally delicious Instagram photo. But their Pink Pineapple, crafted with tequila, vodka, fresh cactus pear and pomegranate, is the icing on the cake!
Build Your Own Bloody Mary at Brick & Spoon
This Bloody Mary is truly brunch in a glass. Cocktail drinkers can choose from Brick & Spoon’s extensive list of 50+ ingredients and liquors to add to their tomato juice including Gulf shrimp, sausage, deviled eggs, pickled vegetables, vodka, tequila and more. This spicy concoction is a fun way to show all of your followers that they have a future mixologist in their midst.
