Before you head out onto the water to mix up these cocktails, you’ll need some supplies. Shatterproof stemless wineglasses are a must. They’re great for all kinds of cocktails and if they get dropped or knocked over it’s no big deal. A cocktail set is also great to have on hand. A nonslip cutting board will make life a lot easier when preparing garnishes on board!
Use the best boating drinks to turn an hour of boating into a happy hour of boating filled with laughs, friends, family, and great drinks.
My husband and I have been enjoying boating ever since we got our first vessel. We live close to the water so it’s always a good day for boating in our opinion. We like to gather up friends and family and head out on the water to just relax. The sounds of the water and birds make for a great experience. Besides family and friends, we like to bring a good meal with us. The only other thing we bring along is a list of the best boating drinks and all of the ingredients we’ll need.
