The Key West Colada, Key West Castaway & Express De-Stress, if those aren’t great boat drink names then I don’t know what are.
Those are the 3 finalists for the Key West Express cocktail contest. Congrats to Jennifer, Michael, and Kevin! The winner will be receiving 2 free tickets aboard the Key West Express and travel from Fort Myers to Key West. The winner will also have their cocktail served at the Key West Express bar.
Finalists were picked by Linda from the Key West Express, a bartender, and a couple other staff members of the Key West Express.
Please vote for your favorite cocktail and let’s send one of these Castaways to Key West! Voting will end tomorrow morning at 8am. I will then tally the votes and announce the winner tomorrow morning.
