A Refreshing Dry January Mocktail with Mixologist Jantzen Davis

January 03, 2023

After a day spent in the sun, a refreshing beverage is often in order. However, spirits don’t always need to be on deck! Whether you prefer to imbibe poolside or at the bar--one could argue that the setting is often more impactful to that first relaxing sip than the spirit can be.

Just in time for January, the month many use to detox and reset, Hawks Cay’s bartender Jantzen Davis shares this favorite mocktail on the menu – perfect for those enjoying a Dry January or opting out of alcohol year-round.
Which Hawks Cay menu mocktail do you recommend to a first-time guest?
JD: Tiki Grill’s strawberry lemonade is perfect for any guest looking for alcohol-free fun while they lay out at the pool. The strawberry brings the sweet, lemon brings the sour and the mint is exactly the refreshing touch to bring it all together.
How do you make it?
JD: Combine .5 oz strawberry puree, 3 mint leaves and 1 lemon wedge. Muddle the ingredients, add lemonade and shake. Garnish with a lemon wheel and mint leaves, then enjoy!
Which menu item pairs well with the strawberry lemonade mocktail?
JD: Hawks Cay’s strawberry lemonade mocktail pairs well with Tiki Grill’s shrimp tacos (my personal favorite), which includes blackened gulf shrimp, citrus slaw, cotija cheese and fresno peppers. A perfect, refreshing lunch combination!
