Nautical Cocktails to Toast the Boat Show From Paige Nast at Tap 42
Starting yesterday, the the 54th-annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show has brought thousands of maritime professionals to town for a weekend of work and, well, copious drinking.
Since we know there is going to be plenty of alcohol consumption taking place over the course of the next few days, we asked Tap 42's mixologist and beverage director Paige Nast to mix up some nautical-inspired cocktails for the show.

"This is a take on a classic hand-shaken Daquiri, said to be the drink of choice for Ernest Hemingway; although, he often added a splash of grapefruit," said Nast.
2 oz. Atlantico Rum
1 oz. Fresh lime
1 oz. Simple syrup
1 egg white
Step One: Shake the egg white in a cocktail shaker, by itself, with no ice.
Step Two: Add the remaining ingredients and shake vigorously; you'll end up with a nice froth on top.
Step Three: Pour into a glass with fresh ice.
Step Four: Garnish with an Amarena Cherry and a lime wheel
