As if turquoise waters and white-sand beaches aren’t enough, Aruba offers the Ultimate Sand Bar experience. When hunger hits, dine with your toes in the sand or perched above the ocean on a pier at one of the island’s 20+ romantic restaurants ideally situated along the water.
While the famously-fruity Aruba Ariba is available at most of these hot spots, five new island-inspired cocktails will turn any kitchen into an Aruba Super Bar.
These cocktails go beyond the traditional margarita, whiskey sour or cosmopolitan. From the Eagle Beach Bellini to the Conchi Cosmo, each cocktail has special ingredients to capture the One happy island's essence and create the most memorable sip. While mixing, shaking and sipping, celebrities including Serena Williams, Peyton Manning, Peter Facinelli and Terrell Owens have gotten their taste of the Ultimate Sand Bar Experience within the Aruba Super Bar.
Featured cocktails include:
Eagle Beach Bellini
With refreshing lemon rum infused with reposado tequila, this bubbly aperitif is as gorgeous as one of Aruba’s breathtaking sunsets on Eagle Beach.
With zesty additions of basil, lemongrass and passion fruit, this margarita’s flavors match the playful, vibrant nature of Mangel Halto beach.
Hadicurari Windy Sour
The dichotomy between Aruba's constant trade wind breezes and still turquoise waters at Hadicurari inspires this intriguing sweet and sour scotch cocktail.
Guadirikiri Cave Cooler
This robust fusion of vodka and fruit is as compelling as the historic interiors of Aruba’s Guadirikiri Caves.
This flirty and bold cosmopolitan brings to mind the lively waves pouring from the Caribbean sea into Conchi, Aruba’s Natural Pool.
