Bahamian Peach Mojito
At the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, they’re serving up the Bahamian Peach Mojito at their chic poolside oasis Drift. This summery cocktail combines John Watling’s Pale Bahamian Rum, Blue Curacao, Peach Schnapps, lime juice, club soda, and fresh mint. It’s the perfect refreshment to sip while lounging at one of the poolside rain cabanas at Baha Mar.
