Great Southern Café: Mojito. As the grand champion of our 2015 Perfect in South Walton cocktail category, this drink is a must-try. Order the Great Southern Café’s classic mojito, which is made with muddled mint leaves and tangy lime juice; or opt for a flavored mojito like guava or strawberry, both of which are made with fresh fruit.
The Red Bar: Bloody Mary. Some people say that Bloody Marys qualify as “salads in a glass” — and at The Red Bar, this is almost true. Order up a Bloody Mary at this South Walton hot spot and get a full serving of veggies. Each cocktail is complete with olives, celery and a whopping amount of pickled green beans.
Café Thirty-A: Martini. With seven different martinis on the menu, Café Thirty-A is a place that takes this classic cocktail seriously. Order a simple martini and garnish with your choice of queen olives, bleu cheese-stuffed olives, or holland onions. Or, change things up with additions like fresh-squeezed orange, peach puree, or St. Germain. Don’t miss out on the strawberry-basil martini currently on the menu!
Cantina Laredo: Casa Margarita. This Sandestin restaurant serves up a classic margarita that’s not too sweet and just tart enough. Made with Sauza Giro Silver tequila, Cointreau, lime and lemon, this drink has the right ingredients of the time-honored, traditional margarita. Keep it pure and simple with the Casa Margarita, or add a modern twist to your drink with a pomegranate, strawberry, mango, or tamarind infusion.
Stinky’s Fish Camp: Bloody Mary. Stinky’s Bloody Mary is more than just a drink — it’s a work of art. Order up this drink at brunch and see what special garnishes your bartender includes. Not only does the traditional celery stick come served in a Stinky’s Bloody Mary; specialties like pickled okra, green beans, lemon, Old Bay seasoning and shrimp are known to decorate glasses, too.
