Sammy's Beach Bar Cocktail Co. Island PopSammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. Island Pop Offers Nostalgic Qualities for Adults

Have you ever wondered why fruit punch was one of the most memorable drinks of grade school dances and parties when you were a child? Even at a young age, there is something about gathering around the punch bowl for a delicious punch. The taste, the scent, the color — it is simply perfect for social gatherings. Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. Island Pop offers the same memorable qualities for adults. The Hawaiian punch flavor is perfect for casual parties and get-togethers. You are certain to love the taste that brings you back to your childhood days and first family and school events. The kick the rum provides is also just enough to help you unwind and enjoy the relaxing occasion. 

Soft and Easy to Drink

Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. makes their Island Pop canned cocktail with rum, agave, natural flavors, and citric acid. The natural fruit flavors include cherry, pineapple, and citrus. These fruit flavors combine into the perfect Hawaiian punch flavor. Perhaps the most notable characteristic of Island Pop is how easy it is to drink. You can easily find yourself drinking a second can as they go down easy and smooth. The soft taste is oh-so-delicious as well. It truly takes you back to your younger days of sipping on fruit punch on a hot summer day. It never feels as if the taste is too sweet, either, which was terrific. Each canned cocktail provides a nice kick of alcohol, but the rum flavor is subtle. 

A Perfect Blend of Fruit Flavors

The cherry, pineapple, and citrus fruit flavors make for the perfect fruity rum cocktail beverage. Upon popping the can, you are greeted with the delicious aroma of punch-inspired flavors. We were surprised to find that the color pours out clear as well. It also tastes just as good as it looks and smells. Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. Island Pop truly embodies the Hawaiian punch vibe in a can. Although it tastes like tropical fruit punch, it is not too sweet. This rum cocktail is not too boozy either. It contains 5.5% ABV, so the alcohol is certainly there and noticeable as you consume.

Hawaiian Punch for Adults

You enjoy the Hawaiian island experience with every sip of Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. Island Pop. This rum cocktail, inspired by the famous Hawaiian punch flavor, is perfect for the beach, pool, and other outdoor occasions. It brings you back to the days of sipping punch around the punch bowl as a child. Only this time, you are greeted with a pleasant (but not too boozy) kick of rum with every sip. The taste is as close as you can get to a Hawaii beach without actually being there. You may be surprised that this is rum rather than a traditional seltzer due to the smooth and sweet taste. However, this is undoubtedly a delicious rum cocktail and a beverage we highly recommend for adults who love Hawaiian punch flavor.
