After one sip, you’ll be floating away with the tide.
On my resent trip to the Nauti Turtle to taste test for the Key West Express Boat Drink contest, Rocky the bartender was a great sport in helping us mix up all the different drink recipes. She even mixed up a delicious concoction of her own for us to taste as well. When this drink hit my lips I knew it would make for a great Boat Drinks post. The drink is called the Tropical Long Island. Game faces on Castaways!
The Tropical Long Island as you may have guessed is related to the famous Long Island Iced Tea. When I say related, I’m talking like 3rd cousins twice removed. The one thing they do have in common is a healthy amount of alcohol. The fruity mixture masks the strength of this drink so don’t start slamming these left and right or you will be floating away with the tide.
