Quench your thirst with a tall glass of fresh watermelon juice, a summertime staple. The hydrating properties and naturally sweet flavor of this vibrant beverage will keep you refreshed and cool under the Santa Monica sun. For a zesty twist, squeeze in a splash of lime juice or add a sprig of mint.

Iced Matcha Latte

Boost your energy and savor the vibes with a healthy and refreshing Iced Matcha Latte. Mix matcha powder with milk, add a touch of honey or your preferred sweetener, and stir until blended. Pour over ice and enjoy a cool oceanside treat.

Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita

Add a spicy kick to your beach experience with a tantalizing Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita, a unique blend of tropical sweetness and fiery heat.
