After a long dreary winter, it’s time for a little getaway. When the sun is shining bright, what better place to spend your vacation than at the beach? It’s one of the best places to soak up the sun and unwind. There’s something special about that salty breeze and roaring waves that has us coming back time and time again.
Here at Ohza, our favorite part of the beach is having a drink in hand and our toes in the sand. Not sure what to drink for your ultimate drink day? That’s where we come in.
If you are curious as to what the top beach drinks are, look no further. We’ve got you covered. From bright and tangy cocktails to canned drinks on the go, here are our top list of all the best beach drinks for your next island getaway.
You can’t always guarantee that there will be a Tiki Bar ready to serve you on the beach, so it’s never a bad idea to bring your own drinks to the beachfront. This is a great way to help you save money and time, maybe practice your mixology skills, and still have your favorite drink on the beach whenever you please.
Here are our favorite on-the-go drinks.
You can’t have a successful beach day without Ohza! Plus, Ohza comes in fun fruity flavors like Mango Mimosa, Classic Bellini, Cranberry Mimosa, and Classic Mimosa, so you never feel far from the tropics.
We are the perfect choice because of our top-notch flavor, and Ohza comes in convenient cans so you can have your mimosas at the ready without all the fuss of bottles and glasses. Ohza is designed specifically for any adventure life may throw at you, especially those involving sun and sand.

2. Hard Seltzers and Beers
You can never go wrong with a sparkling seltzer or a light canned beer. They’re great for grabbing and going.
Looking for a beach day pro-tip? No matter what kind of alcohol you’re drinking, you can keep all your canned drinks in one place with an insulated cooler or bag, which is a win-win for everyone.
Seltzers and light beers are especially great options if you are just looking for something quick and easy to drink without necessarily feeling buzzed. They’re great for a quick drink and dip in the waves if you have to dine and dash from the beach function for whatever reason.
While we love drinking on vacation, hydration is still crucial when you are out and about at the beach. A fun way to switch up your normal H20 and celebrate the beach in style is by drinking coconut water.
Coconut water is full of antioxidants and boasts a subtle fruity flavor that helps you feel hydrated and refreshed so you can enjoy your day in the sun.
For a more subtle approach to fruity flavor, we recommend a hard cider. Hard ciders are a lighter drink choice if you are looking for something with lower alcohol content.
Whether you decide to buy hard lemonade or make your own, you can never go wrong with bringing crisp, tart lemonade to the beach. It’s refreshing, easy to make, and definitely easy to take with you wherever you go.
It’s also easy to add a splash of your favorite alcohol to give it a little extra something for your sunny excursion. We recommend vodka for an extra kick.
While you can never go wrong with a canned beer or seltzer, sometimes you want a drink with a little extra punch of flavor (and liquor!) Many vacation spots offer bars with loads of fruity, summery drinks worth celebrating. Even if you don’t have full access to a loaded bar, you can easily make some of these drinks and add your own special touches.
You’re on vacation; let loose a little. Here are our top picks for specialty beach drinks that you definitely deserve.
One of the most iconic beach drinks is the beloved piña colada. It’s packed with sweet coconut flavor and can easily be made virgin or with alcohol. It’s a summer classic that is sweet and subtle.
Another perfect beachy drink is a good old margarita. Margaritas often consist of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. It’s tangy, topped with tequila, and the top choice of drink if you are looking to party in the sun.
If you’re looking to day drink on vacation (no judgment here), this is your drink. Tequila sunrises are made of tequila, orange juice, and grenadine syrup. This is the perfect slow morning wake-up call.
Looking for a drink that will cool you down and wake you up? Mojitos are the best choice for that. Mojito’s are made with white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. They’re bubbly, tangy, and go down easy.
For a drink with a subtle fruity flavor, sangria is our choice. Sangria is a Spanish drink made from red wine, fruit, and a few other ingredients, so sangria is your friend if you are a wine lover. It’s often made with other flavors like orange juice and brandy for an extra kick of flavor.
Sometimes you are looking for something boozy and breezy. Our go-to for that scenario is a Long Island iced tea.
This classic drink is made with plenty of booze: vodka, tequila, triple sec, gin, light rum, and a splash of cola. If you want to get topsy and turvy, get yourself a Long Island iced tea.
The Mai tai is another classic tiki drink. Mai tais are fun and flirty — perfect for an evening on the beach. They’re usually made of rum, orange Curaçao, and lime juice.
Our favorite part of a Mai Tai is the fruity garnish on top, especially when they are fruits soaked in rum.
A frosty cocktail with two different kinds of rum? No better choice than a Bahama mama.
This drink is made with pineapple and lime juice and is nothing short of refreshing. Our favorite way of enjoying a Bahama mama is either on the rocks or blended into a boozy slush. There’s no wrong way to enjoy this summer favorite.
For a bright and blue spin on a mixed drink, our favorite is a Blue Hawaiian. All you need for this colorful cocktail is white rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and cream of coconut.
It’s everything you love about the flavors of summer, blended into a beautiful ocean blue beverage.
One of the most simple summer mixed drinks is a Miami vice. A Miami vice cocktail is one part strawberry daiquiri and one part pina colada. It’s bright, sweet, and perfect for a full day of sipping in the sun.
This mixed drink can be made with or without alcohol, so a wide variety of beachgoers can enjoy it.
There are few things better in this life than a day at the beach. One of the little joys of life is breathing in the salty air and watching the waves toss and turn.
Our favorite way to take in the beauty of mother earth is with a drink in hand. Next time you find yourself soaking up the sun and searching for the perfect drink for your day at the beach, we’ve got you covered.
Here at Ohza, we love celebrating the little things in life, like a sunny day at the beach. No matter your vice, there are so many fun and fruity drinks that can help make your day in the sun one to remember. You are worth celebrating!
