Relax at an outdoor tiki bar or at an exotic drink excursion with a refreshing mojito, margarita, pina colada or mai tai in hand and pretend you're at an island getaway. Cool off from the summer heat with a frou-frou concoction or a frozen spirit at one of these bars or restaurants in Orlando.

Bahama Breeze is your local trip to the islands in Altamonte Springs. The Caribbean atmosphere lets guests forget about their troubles for a while and lets them feel as if they're in the islands, mon. The journey continues with the restaurant's signature drink the Bahama Mama, which includes freshly squeezed orange juice, pineapple juice, banana liqueur, Malibu and Myers's dark rum.
Experience Cuban ambiance and virtual island getaway at Gloria and Emilio Estefan's eatery in Downtown Disney. The bamboo bar features colorful bongos as stools and serves authentic Mojitos that can sneak up on you if you're not careful.
Step back in time during the '60s when tiki drinks were served at the Polynesian-themed restaurant and bar the Aku Aku in the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas. This underground bar in Downtown Orlando pays homage to the lounge of yesteryear with its Aku-Aku, Mai Tai and other old-school drinks.
The Aloha spirit is alive and well at the Waitiki Retro Tiki Lounge in Downtown Orlando. The bar serves tropical cocktails like the Hurricane, Beach Bum and Coco-Loco served from a long, wooden bar created from old railroad track wood from Zimbabwe, Africa.
