Great dining spots, white sand beaches, golf … those are just some of the reasons why Myrtle Beach is a top visiting destination.
But travelers may not know that Myrtle Beach offers some of the top drinking spots in the country.
Four of them, in fact, really stand out. And they’re within close range of each other, so visitors can make a day of it and visit all four.
Start with Happy Hour at the Resort
A drinking outing must start with Happy Hour at the Resort. Caribbean Resort & Villas serves lunch and dinner, but signature cocktails range from cocktails on the rocks to daquiris and frozen favorites such as the Lava Lamp, which is Lunazul Tequila blended with margarita mix and strawberry mix.
But visitors would be strongly advised to try the Signature Bucket Cocktail called Voodoo Juice, which includes Admiral Nelson’s Coconut Rum, pineapple rum, mango rum, banana rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and cranberry juice.
Then head next door … to Sea Captains House
“The Sun, the Sand, and a Drink in Your Hand,” is a slogan for Sea Captain’s House, and the drinking establishment lives up to that with selections like the Classic Mule. That classic drink includes Dixie Vodka, simple syrup, fresh lime juice and ginger beer. It’s one of the sparkling cocktails that the establishment serves, and other categories include specialty drinks, specialty liquors, and wine.
Sea Captain’s House was voted best seafood restaurant four years in a row and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. And to celebrate that, one of its after-dinner drinks is a chocolate-covered cherry martini with Pinnacle Cherry Vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur and cream.
Next, head down the road to Strong Waters
Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen is a new restaurant and bar in Myrtle Beach, and the establishment boasts that it strives to support all things local, including businesses, the community, local farmers, and artisans. The company uses the “Farm to Shaker” method for its cocktails, meaning it creates drinks “from local ingredients that transport you to another time and place.” Its constantly changing craft beer list includes only select beers from breweries around the state to give customers “a true taste of the Carolinas.”
“Crafted Classics” on the drink menu include Lavender Field, which features Tito’s Vodka, house-infused lavender syrup, cranberry and lime juice.
Finally, end up at Bummz
Bummz Beach Cafe features an Oceanfront Restaurant Menu of mouthwatering burgers, tacos, sandwiches and salads, but if possible, visitors should try to end their drinking excursion at Bummz during Happy Hour, which is daily from 4 to 6 p.m.
Happy Hour or not, visitors to Bummz will have a choice of drinks that includes the Bummz Beach Relief. That is Bummz’s signature cocktail that includes raspberry vodka, coconut rum, and pineapple and cranberry juice.
After such an enjoyable drinking excursion, head back to your Myrtle Beach home base at Caribbean Resort & Villas, with additional features such as water attractions and games. Visitors might want to cap off their day with a trip to Mist Spa for total relaxation, with services such as individual massage, couples massage, facials, body treatments, and scrubs.
When planning your Myrtle Beach vacation, make time for an excursion to enjoy all of the area’s top drinking establishments. Before and after that excursion, plan on making Caribbean Resort & Villas your vacation home base. Just the water amenities alone are reason enough to stay at the Caribbean, with 14 pools to choose from. That’s in addition to surroundings that include the best golf, the best food, and the best beaches. Plan your stay at the Caribbean today.
