Escape the Chill at These Tropical Baltimore Bars

by Jennifer Waldera on Jan 18, 2018 in Roundups

 
While resort wear may be all over the retail racks, not all of us can cruise away from the weekly bouts of wintry weather. However, there are a few cocktails around town with enough tropical flavor to evoke the feeling of being on vacation... and enough booze to possibly forget about those frozen pipes.
 
BoatHouse Canton
The original Orange Crush made popular on Maryland’s Eastern Shore sparked a trend that has resulted in seemingly endless varieties of crushes around Baltimore. BoatHouse Canton’s Pineapple Crush, with fresh squeezed pineapple juice, Smirnoff pineapple vodka, and club soda, though, may be one of the most tropical style versions. (2809 Boston St, 410-773-9795)
 
A pizza joint in the middle of the city might seem like a long shot for finding tropical cocktails but Joe Squared’s long list of rum options makes it a perfect place to find a summery style drink. The Rum Runner with Cruzan dark rum, blackberry liqueur, banana liqueur, grenadine, orange and pineapple juices, soda water, and a floater of Cruzan Black Strap rum is one option - or go local with the Baltimore Punch with their house spiced rum with triple sec, fresh squeezed lemon juice, orange juice and grenadine. (33 W North Ave, 410-545-0444)
 
This waterfront mainstay’s Goombay Smash sports a tropical blend of Bacardi light rum, coconut rum, peach schnapps, pineapple and orange juices. (1325 Key Hwy, 410-837-9903)
 
On the edge of Harbor East and Fell’s Point, the upscale sushi spot sports a long list of cocktails. The Mango Martini is the most tropical among them with Absolut Mango Vodka, mango purée, and tropical juices. (1390 Lancaster St, 410-522-3200)
 
This Hampden eatery elevates the typical tropical flavored drink in its Flamingo-tini, combining Grey Goose Vodka, triple sec, pineapple juice, and raspberry liqueur, then topping it with Champagne and serving in a martini glass. (3845 Falls Rd, 410-878-0884)
