Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 by Calvin Harris & The Classic Mojito

This throwback album from 2017 still features prominently on any carefree vacation playlist for how well it captures the tropical mood. As the name suggests, ‘bounce’ is the primary energy you can enjoy while throwing this album on, which is sure to lift your mood whether it’s on a Caribbean vacation or just a casual weekend unwinding at home. What better way to capture this tropical mood than the signature and most refreshing summer cocktail, the BACARDÍ Mojito? The refreshing and icy minty flavors of the Mojito are all you need to enjoy the album’s hits like Feels ft. Pharrell & Katy Perry, and Rollin ft. Khalid & Future - a fabulous combination of uptempo music and a cooldown cocktail.

The Classic Daiquiri & Barbie The Album (Official Soundtrack) by Various Artists

The official soundtrack album for the most talked-about movie of 2023 features an all-star lineup of some of the most popular artists of the decade - kicking off with the smooth 90s-inspired pop of Dua Lipa’s Dance The Night and Lizzo’s Pink that dissolves into the hard-hitting punk beats of Charli XCX’s Speed Drive and GAYLE’s butterflies. And while the characters in Barbie World are only able to sip from empty glasses at their parties, you fortunately have a much better cocktail option to fill yours as you groove to this celebration of the Material Girl sound - the Daiquiri. This 20th century cocktail has become a timeless classic for its smooth combination of flavors that embodies the same vibes as the album in question - sweet and tart, with cleanly layered flavors and elegant composition. 

1989 (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift & The Frozen Pina Colada

This Album of the Year 2016 from possibly this generation's most iconic popstar is as quotable as it is upbeat - light hearted yet complex, playful yet full of poetic metaphors with moving instrumentals. 1989 is an album that is a true blend of moods that is sweet and tantalizing while also being layered and complex through the inimitable poetry of Taylor Swift across hits like Blank Space, Shake It Off, and Style. The fun and exuberant notes of this album call for cheering, celebration, and unabashed delight in who you are - and finds an appropriate cocktail pairing in the timeless vacation cocktail that, like Taylor, has won hearts all over the world - the Frozen Pina Colada. This Puerto Rican cocktail is layered with a variety of tropical flavors of fruit, coconut, blended together with the sweetness of rum. It’s a drink that keeps you coming back for more - the perfect companion for an album of which you can never get enough.

24K Magic by Bruno Mars & The Tropical Treacle

Bruno Mars’ upbeat Album of the Year from 2018 has come to be known as the ultimate celebration of living the high life. From grooving to the eponymous hit title track to walking through the smooth retro jazz beats of That's What I Like, this is the perfect soundtrack to living your best life - whether you’re doing it out at a party or celebrating a particularly good mood at home. Then all you need to embody Bruno Mars’ glamorous R&B king vibe is a glass of the rich Tropical Treacle to sip as you strut around the room. This luxe cocktail is made with premium aged rum that flaunts gorgeous color and delectable flavor, and everything from its golden shade and elevated ingredients to the bright orange peel garnish will get you feeling the ‘24K Magic in the air’ in every sense of the phrase.

The Album by BLACKPINK & The Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

If there’s one thing that Korean powerhouse girl group BLACKPINK is known for, it is making a splash with their bold music. Featuring trap beats combined with EDM and hip hop influences, their debut full length album, simply named The Album, is full of empowering girl anthems as well as whimsically romantic tracks - from the audacious and unapologetic energy of How You Like That & Pretty Savage, to the bubbly and romantic Ice Cream & Lovesick Girls. For whenever you're enjoying either (or both) of these moods, you absolutely cannot miss pairing it with its perfect cocktail counterpart - the drink/dessert hybrid of the Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri. Blending the smoothness of rum with the fruity flavor of frozen strawberry slush, this drink brings out the boldness of the spirit while letting you add your preferred amount of fruity flair - an ideal match to enjoy the album for the celebration of bold individuality that it is.
