Despite being a perennial Spring Break destination that has served as the setting for such cinematic classics as Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise and the much more simply named Spring Break, Ft. Lauderdale is so much more than a party destination. The 23 miles of beautiful South Florida beaches offer all kinds of excitement, from relaxing in the sun to snorkeling, and don’t worry—you can still party.
But if you’re looking for something charming that combines the vivid nightlife with style and sophistication, head over to Lauderdale Beach, where you’ll find the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. Between the fine dining at OCEAN2000, relaxing treatments at PURE Spa and the lazy river, this property is a favorite for families and Instagram models alike.
So, what kind of cocktail is best for an afternoon spent on the private beach at Pelican Grand Beach Resort? General Manager TJ Pierri highly recommends the Tropical Tease, which looks so good you might want two—one to drink and one to tweet about. And now you can do both from home, because this recipe is yours.
