Cocktail of the Week: Beach Chair

This cocktail is like sipping on sunshine straight out of the glass! When summertime hits, so does Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology's craving for fresh juice.

This cocktail combines some of her favorite tropical flavors, such as orange, pineapple and — of course — rum. As a result, Natalie's Beach Chair is a slightly sweet but perfectly balanced libation.


  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • 1.5 oz. White Rum
  • 0.5 oz. Crème de Banana
  • 0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
  • 2 oz. Guava Lemonade
  • 1 oz. Orange Pineapple Juice
  • 0.5 oz. Cherry Syrup


  1. Add all the ingredients to the cocktail shaker, top with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass over fresh ice.

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.
