Cool Down with Delaware’s Signature Beach Cocktails

Nothing says summer in Delaware like a cool refreshing cocktail - made even better with a salty breeze. Try one of these top drinks, sure to cool you off after a day of fun in the sun.

Margaritas at Agave – If you visit Agave in the summer time, you are likely to have a little wait, so we suggest using that time to decide which of their many delicious tequila cocktails you are going to try. The Original Agave margarita is a popular favorite while the Avocado Cilantro and the Sweet Heat are guaranteed to please.

Dogfish Head SeaQuench – Prefer beer to cocktails? Try Dogfish Head’s popular sour, SeaQuench. This super refreshing brew is tasty straight from a cold can or spiced up into a Michelada. Enjoy both at the new “Off-Centered on the Rocks” outdoor summer patio at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal.

Orange Crush – The epitome of Delaware’s summer drinks, the Orange Crush is a nightlife staple, especially at the beach. In Dewey, leave the mixing to the pros at the Starboard and if you’re keeping an eye on your bikini body, order yours “skinny” to trade out lemon-lime soda for seltzer. If orange isn’t your favorite flavor, try a grapefruit version of the Crush.

Bloody Mary Bar Stop by the Starboard to experience “The Best Bloody Mary Bar at the Beach.” Start with their signature gourmet Bloody Mary mix and then choose from the countless options to make your perfect drink.

Dewey Devil – Popular nightspots like Northbeach are known for this frozen cocktail; featuring strawberries and cream. Sip slowly to avoid brain freeze!

Beach Buckets – A bucket of drinks usually involves bottles of beer, but not at Big Chill Beach Club at Delaware Seashore State Park. This beach hot spot serves up four delicious, rum-based concoctions in a 32 oz Beach Bucket. Enjoy one by yourself, or share, as you watch the sun set over the Indian River Inlet Bridge.

Mango’s Jumbo Punch – Made to be shared, Mango’s in Bethany Beach serves their signature rum punch cocktail in a giant glass to share amongst friends! Or try one of their other specialty cocktails served in fun souvenir glasses.

Salted Vines’ Slushies – Combine the crisp wine of a  Delaware on Tap mainstay, Salted Vines with the feeling of drinking a Slurpee, and you have a perfect wine slushy. A different flavor is featured every month, so come back as much as you’d like!
