Sipping Oceanside Mango Coladas in Key West, Florida
When you’re two drinks in before appetizers, welcome to Key West. The city takes pride in mixing one part local with two parts tourist to serve a cocktail of innocent anarchy not easily forgotten the next morning. Anchor your stay from the breeze-cooled, colada-infused harbor bar of the Ocean Key Resort where you can soak in the Caribbean twang of the steel drum quartet that gathered on nearby Mallory Square to serenade the searing, love-red sunset that has come to define the end—and beginning—of every day in Key West. Once you've mustered the liquid courage, get elbow-to-elbow with irascible locals who once you over from behind their beer mug at the Green Parrot.
