We know you miss Catalina Island, and we miss you, too! But you don't have to wait for California's Stay at Home order to be lifted to kick back with a classic Catalina cocktail. You can make your own Catalina memories at home with these two cocktails, straight from Descasno Beach Club and Avalon Grille.
Descanso Destroyer from Descanso Beach Club
Mix 1oz. Sailor Jerry Rum with .25oz Amaretto
Add 1.5oz pineapple juice and 1.5oz orange juice
Add .25oz Crème de Noyaux and .5oz of 151 Rum
Garnish with pineapple and orange
Dragonberry Mojito from Avalon Grille
Add 4 limes, 4 strawberries and a pinch of mint to a tall glass
Muddle to combine. Mix 2oz. Bacardi Dragonberry with .5oz Simple Syrup
Shake well, pour over ice, top with soda
Garnish with mint sprig and a lime wedge
Don't forget about Buffalo Milk -- the "official" drink of Catalina! While it originated in Two Harbors on the west end of the island, it has made its way into most restaurants and bars on Catalina Island. Think of it "as a White Russian gone crazy."
