In celebration of the sailing events taking place in Bermuda this spring and summer,  here are sailing-inspired cocktails to sip while on deck!


The Channel Marker
8 ounces (1 cup) cranberry juice
8 ounces (1 cup) Vodka of choice

Stir ingredients together in a large pitcher. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime wedges.


The Windbag
