Staying hydrated is crucial when basking in the South Carolina sunshine. When you’re lounging by the pool or strolling on the beach, remember to keep your water bottle handy. On hot summer days, aim to drink at least half a gallon of water to stay refreshed.

Water is essential, of course, but vacation is the perfect time to throw a fun beverage or two into the mix! Kingston Resorts boasts multiple restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a handcrafted drink served by our friendly staff. At Wet Whistle at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort, try a guest favorite — the bucket drink. The stunning views of Myrtle Beach are even better with a Caribbean Rum Punch in hand. If you’re at Coastal Grill & Bar at the Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach, enjoy one of the crisp brews on draft or sip on a light white wine to cool off. Kids can join in the fun with frozen mocktails in a variety of exciting colors and flavors.

And be sure to stop by Black Drum Brewing, the newest addition to our host of on-resort bars and restaurants. This venue is the perfect place to cool down, featuring an outdoor beer garden serving cold, crisp beers from North and South Carolina’s best breweries and fresh, inventive cocktails. For a refreshing take on a classic drink, try the Blood Orange Old Fashioned. Served chilled over a large ice cube and garnished with a dried blood orange slice and a cherry, this is the perfect beverage to cool down and enjoy the beachy vibes of Kingston Resorts.
