Drink This Now: Delia at WATR Rooftop Bar at 1 Hotel South Beach

From the second that guests walk into the tranquil 1 Hotel South Beach, they are greeted with next-level hotel amenities — almost all of which are connected to nature and were created with sustainability in mind.

1 Hotel South Beach frequently partners with Debris Free Oceans, an organization dedicated to cleaning and protecting the ocean. Most notably, they recently collaborated on an initiative for World Ocean’s Day in June to clean up the streets of South Beach.  Now they are leveraging this partnership to focus on the newest F&B trend: sustainable cocktails.

The Delia is the latest cocktail added to this menu at WATR, the rooftop bar and restaurant with ocean views atop the 1 Hotel South Beach.  The tropical drink is made with Appleton signature blend mixed with Chareau Aloe Vera Liqueur, Coconut Water, Lime, and Hibiscus –and, served in a coconut shell with a reusable 1 Hotel straw, ($29; $1 from each cocktail sold is donated to Debris Free Oceans).

This idea was spearheaded by Steven Minor, the Beverage Director, who was inspired by environment friendly trends and utilizing local ingredients. “The Delia cocktail is named after the Delia Whale, the whale statue in the hotel lobby which is made up of plastic pollution found in the oceans and helps raise awareness towards protecting our seas,” explains Minor.

  • 1.5 oz. Appleton Reserve Rum
  • 0.50 oz. Chareau Aloe Liqueur
  • 1 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 0.75 oz. Lemon
  • 3 oz Coconut Water
