Frozen drinks overlooking the water in Orange Beach AL

Beaches & Beverages: Four Ways to Keep on Summering with a Memorable Cold One in Hand

The vacationers of the world have plenty of ways to unwind in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

It’s no secret that plenty of us like to have that icy cocktail in hand to go with our favorite beach activity. They also go great when there’s little activity going on because that unforgettable sunset only requires a comfortable chair or towel in the sand.

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach will have you more than covered when it comes to swirling a wine glass, cracking open a can of local craft beer, shuffling ice cubes with your straw, or adding a new complementary cup to your collection from a local establishment.

Raise it up wherever you are (just remember…no glass is allowed on the beach)!

Luna's Eat & Drink Orange Beach AL

Luna's Eat & Drink

It’s of my favorite places in Orange Beach to kick back with local craft beer! Luna’s has many taps flowing with some of Alabama’s favorite cold ones and more from all over the region and country. Happy hour specials pair perfectly with delicious soul food made by Luna’s talented chef. You love your local brewery at home, so become a regular here while you’re vacationing on Alabama’s beaches!

Gulf State Park Fishing & Education Pier Gulf Shores AL

Gulf State Park Pier

Alabama’s Gulf State Park Pier is most well-known for natural wonders, great fishing and beautiful opportunities to snap the perfect pictures. The pier is also home to a fantastic little bar where you can enjoy the salt air and sounds of the surf along with your favorite beverage.

The Hangout in Gulf Shores AL

The Hangout

There’s nothing better than feeling frozen on a warm beach day. The Hangout specializes in this phenomenon with its own specialty frozen drinks. Don’t worry if you tip one back and start seeing countless Pez Dispensers and hundreds of rubber duckies. You aren’t seeing things. The inside of the restaurant has quite the interior décor; however, the exterior is quite nice, as well. I prefer the outside tables looking out onto Bama’s beach and mentally planning my next trip into the refreshing waves.

Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar Orange Beach AL

Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar

It’s the only roadhouse you’ll ever need. Its signature drink is the Bushwhacker and you could say it’s one of the best in both Alabama and Florida at the same time since the bar straddles the state line. Live music on multiple stages, plenty of bars to mosey up to with some of the most fun-loving bartenders in America. The Flora-Bama welcomes a loyal legion of folks that come back year after year and new customers that fall in love with this icon every day.
