After one sip, you’ll be shaking it on the Ft. Lauderdale Beach sand.

Close your eyes and picture the stars in the sky. Picture stars on stage. Picture boats anchored just off shore. Picture your feet completely buried in the warm sand. Picture a cold rum drink in your hand.

You just pictured the Tortuga Music Festival.

Coming this April 11th-12th, Fort Lauderdale Beach will become ground zero for some of the biggest names in country music. This two-day festival features names like Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band and about a dozen other big names will fill three different stages.

Needless to say, this pirate is a little excited about seeing Kenny, Zac and all the others on the sand. And nothing lubricates the wheels of excitement like a new Boat Drink!

This week’s drink recipe is appropriately named Tortuga Nights.
