This ... more The Bikini cocktail is a creamy and indulgent drink that combines the bold flavors of white rum and vodka with the smoothness of milk and sweetness of sugar syrup. This cocktail gained popularity in the 1950s and 1960s along the beaches of the Mediterranean, particularly in the glamorous French Riviera. The name "Bikini" is said to be inspired by the popular swimwear trend at the time, referencing the drink's light and refreshing qualities. The combination of the two spirits creates a strong and complex base, while the milk and sugar syrup add a creamy and sweet balance. This cocktail is perfect for sipping under the hot sun or toasting to a relaxing tropical vacation.
