It isn’t a Hamilton Island holiday without a refreshing tropical, fruity drink or two.

Here are three cocktails to try on your WAHI escape. With just a few ingredients required, they are the perfect drinks to make in your apartment.

Tip: These are best enjoyed on the balcony, overlooking the beautiful blue ocean.


The classic all-day cocktail. All you need is equal parts dry sparkling wine and chilled orange juice. Make sure you add the sparkling wine first, then when you add the orange juice it will combine without the need to stir and remove some of those bubbles!

Pina Colada

Nothing says ‘holiday’ quite like an ice cold, creamy Pina Colada. This simple cocktail is made up of two parts rum to one part coconut water or coconut cream. Add another part of pineapple juice, a couple of teaspoons of caster sugar to sweeten and top off with a slice of pineapple to garnish!

Non-alcoholic sangria

On a hot afternoon, mocktails are just as refreshing as the alcoholic kind. Plus, you can enjoy as many as you’d like!

There are many different recipes for sangria, but with an orange, lemon, lime, apple, some soda water, cranberry juice, cinnamon and a little bit of sugar, you can’t go wrong.

Enjoy! Don’t forget you can order wine and beer up to your room from reception.
