Tommy Bahama is synonymous with elegant tropical living. If the two of you won’t be making a tropical trip this winter, though, we’ve got four tropical cocktails from the bartenders of Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar at Town Square Las Vegas sure to warm your winter evenings.
The cocktails are created by Tommy Bahama bartenders from their 12 restaurant locations spanning the country and are inspired by only the freshest, seasonal ingredients then crafted with the Tommy Bahama-island flare. Every month, they create their own specialty cocktail and one is selected to be served at all 12 Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bars across the country.
Tropical Harvest (Created in Naples, Fla.)
1 part Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum®
1 part vanilla rum
1 part mango rum
1⁄2 part orange Juice
1⁄2 part pineapple juice
Splash sour mix
Mix first six ingredients and shake 20 times and pour into martini glass. Sink 1⁄4 oz. grenadine and then layer 1⁄2 oz. Midori on top of grenadine. Garnish with an orange wheel wrapped around a cherry on a bamboo skewer on the rim of the glass. The skewer doubles as a stir stick to stir the layers.
Kiwi-tini (Created in Sandestin, Fla.)
2 parts Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum®
1⁄2 Kiwi pulp plus juice (1/2 the kiwi goes thru the lime press, the pulp separates easily from the rind and goes into the drink. The other half is used making the kiwi wheel for the garnish.)

Shake 20 times and pour into martini glass. Garnish with a 1⁄4” thick fresh kiwi wheel.
