This summer, the resort is featuring four Hawks Cay-themed cocktails, including the Shipwreck Colada made with Cruzan Blackstrap rum and homemade pina colada mix, Passionate Sunset made with Sky blood orange vodka, grenadine and passion fruit puree, Lagoon Lemonade, a Florida Keys twist on the Long Island favorite, and Lordi’s creation, the Key Lime Cooler, made with key lime rum, fresh mint leaves, key lime juice and coconut water with pulp.
