With days getting longer, we're sure everyone's thinking of the beach, 'cause nothing screams summer quite like it. But like us, if you can't wait any longer for the sunny season, you can feel like it's already here with some of the best cocktails in Washington state that come in real beach pails. You'll have to see (and sip on) it to believe it!
With seven locations across the Evergreen State, these ingenious drinks can be found at The Rock Wood Fired Pizza.
While you'd typically expect to visit this spot for their hand-tossed dough, it's their 30-ounce buckets that steal the show.
Aptly called the "Bucket List," their menu of boozy showstoppers come in a variety of flavors. Their classic tub is a blend of five different rums and tropical juices that'll cost you $12.95.
And you'd be mistaken to believe it's just rum. Their concoctions have everything from vodka and gin to triple sec, agave nectars and peach schnapps — all in the same drink too. You'll find a can of mixer casually dunked in it.
Whether you're a margarita or a mimosa person, they have something for everyone. On the menu, you'll find a $13.95, massive bloody mary that comes complete with a peppery-celery salt rim and garnished with olives, hot cherry peppers, and slices of pepperoni!
If you're looking for a low-carb creation, the menu has a "skinny" mix called Truly Madly Deeply. It's essentially a mix of lime juice, cranberry, vodka, and triple sec.
The best part? According to reviews, you can take the bucket home with you as a souvenir of your tipple capacity.
Thanks to just how seriously we take our beer, aside from their other "rocktails" (some of them even come in syringes), they also have brews that are only available in Washington and Oregon (go Pacific Northwest!) There's also a 64-ounce growler that you can get to-go.
If you're looking to soak up all of that alcohol, there's even heavier grub like sandwiches, pizzas, burgers, ribs, paellas, calzones or salads.
Either way, we know how we're starting our summers this year!
