This beachfront haven offers a diverse selection of exotic cocktails that promise to elevate your spirits and give you a taste of tropical bliss. Here’s a deep dive into some must-try concoctions that you simply can’t miss.

Coco Macio

First on the list is the Coco Macio, a tropical dream in a glass. This cocktail is a creamy blend of coconut water, rum, and a hint of vanilla. Its rich, smooth texture is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the coconut, making it an ideal choice for a relaxing evening by the sea. Sip on a Coco Macio as you watch the sunset over the Arabian Sea, and let the flavours transport you to a state of pure relaxation. 

Bloody Peru

For the spirit lovers, the Bloody Peru is recommended as it is a great cocktail with a spicy twist. This cocktail is similar to the Bloody Mary but a little more exotic. Mixed with tequilla, guava juice and a touch of spices, the Bloody Peru is for the brave ones who like their drinks to be daring and different. The drink is perfect after a day tasting different dishes at The Southern Deck. 

Salty Salcette

Taking its name from the Salcette locality in South Goa, the drink is a cocktail of martini, kokum, whiskey, and ice. This cocktail is a tribute to the regional ingredients which contribute to its sharp and somewhat sweetish taste thanks to the kokum and the smoky flavor of the whiskey. The Salty Salcette is best consumed chilled – the dish is as much a marriage of flavors as it is a journey through Goan food culture. 

Aperol Spiritz

When it comes to something that is a little less heavy and more on the refreshing side, Aperol Spiritz has you sorted. It is an Italian drink made with equal parts of Aperol and prosecco topped with soda, and an orange wedge. The colour is orange and bubbly and its taste is just perfect for a hot Goan afternoon, where it can be enjoyed as a cool beverage. As for the Aperol Spiritz, it has a bitter-sweet and citrusy taste which will be perfect for the lovers of the European-style cocktails.

Psyc Tonic

The Psyc Tonic is actually a gin and tonic but with a splash of a psychedelic spin to it due to the botanicals used in the preparation of the drink. The cocktail made with elder flower and aperol is a bit on the earthy side and is both interesting and somewhat satisfying. There is the use of tonic water in this drink and it gives the Psyc Tonic a clean cut to make it ideal for those sunny tropical evenings.

Mermaid Tonic

Last but not least is the Mermaid Tonic, a visually stunning cocktail that’s as delightful to drink as it is to look at. This drink combines gold dust, gin, tonic water, strawberry and basil, creating a mixologist’s dream. The Mermaid Tonic is light and refreshing making it an excellent choice for a leisurely day spent lounging by the beach.
