When you think of a Myrtle Beach vacation, is the first thing that comes to mind the warm sun on your skin? Or maybe it’s the salty air breeze? We know one thing’s for sure — no matter what springs to mind first, there’s probably an ice-cold drink in your hand. And luckily, when you stay at Kingston Resorts, you’re never too far from an ice-cold drink!

Recently, we asked some of the bartenders at our bars and restaurants to share a few of their favorite drinks on our menus with you — and they were happy to let us know. In fact, they even went a step further and offered us the recipes, which, of course, we’re so glad to share with you!

Read on to learn about our bartender’s favorite drinks on the Coastal Bar and Wet Whistle menus.
