“The “Tropical Drink” ice-breaker was a complete success!…All the hard work you and your team put into the conference did not go unnoticed…it was awesome!”

Barbara Solis, Greater Orlando Area Chapter Meeting Professionals International



THE lazy spirit of the tropics makes everyone think of a tall, cool, taste-tempting tropical drink. Ever TOT2wonder what it would be like to be a “Mud Slinger,” a “Grasshopper,” a “Salty Dog,” or a “Bushwacker?” Well, this fun mixer gives you the chance to try it out for a while as you and your colleagues come together through the “Scotch Mist” for a “Night Cap” before the “Tequila Sunrise.”


As each person arrives, they take on an alternate identity – as one ingredient of a drink. Mingling around the party are maraschino cherries, gin, creme de cocoa, ice cubes and other necessities of bartending. The object is for each person to find one or more ingredients that combine with them to “make” some type of drink. For instance, rum combines with pineapple juice and coconut creme to make a “Pina Colada.” Rum can then move on to combine with Amaretto and cola to make a “Lounge Lizzard” or just cola for a “Rum and Coke.” Every time a new drink forms, one of our wandering bartenders will give those “ingredients” a stir stick.


At the end of the evening, the person with the most stir sticks will be our Taste of the Tropics winner. So whether you’re a fan of “Tom Collins,” “Harvey Wallbanger” or would rather sit back and enjoy a “Cherry Coke,” join us for a Taste of the Tropics that you’ll never forget!
