First and foremost, take this opportunity to show some appreciation to the unsung heroes behind the bar—the bartenders! Visit the friendly face who remembers your favorite drink and take a moment to express your gratitude. It’s important to thank those who add a touch of magic to every drink they pour. In Belize, where creativity knows no bounds, bartenders are revered as true artists, alchemists, and storytellers. They have an astounding ability to create cocktails that are as visually stunning as they are delicious. Whether it’s a tantalizing margarita infused with fresh citrus flavors or a spicy Belizean twist on a classic cocktail, every drink is a masterpiece in its own right. Your kind words and generous tips will go a long way in showing your appreciation for their hard work and dedication.

2. Sip and Savor at a Beach Bar

Belize has a plethora of inviting beach bars, so pick one from the list and head right over! Make your way to the iconic Tipsy Tuna in Placencia, and indulge in a leisurely afternoon of sipping. Pair it with a mouthwatering seafood platter and you’ve got the perfect afternoon already.

Can’t make it to a beach bar? No problem! Bring the party to your own home by shaking up a delicious cocktail recipe inspired by Belizean flavors. Why not try your hand at mixing up a Travellers Cran Barrel, a delightful concoction featuring Belize’s own Travellers Liquors? Luckily for you, this recipe only contains two ingredients, making it foolproof! Simply combine barrel-aged rum and cranberry juice and savor the delightful fusion. Nothing pairs quite as nice as Travellers’ dark rum. 

Cheers to World Bartender Day, and cheers to the bartenders who make every day a little brighter with their creativity and flair! Without them, our weekend escapades would pale in comparison.
