Dreaming of having a tropical drink melting in your hand? Maybe you’ve been listening to the Beach Boys or you’ve been waiting for another Drink Up Month recipe.

Local bartender Travis Sanders has managed cocktail programs at places like Serafina and Hotel Sorrento.

He’s also about to jet off to Peru to help deliver medical supplies (that he’s still raising money for) as part of the Angels of the Amazon nonprofit. In the meantime, he has a yummy recipe to share.

If you’d prefer Travis make it himself, you can find him at downtown’s Chan where he’ll keep an extra stash of his syrup just for you.
