Coastal Cocktail Recipe: Cat Island Cruiser
Pass Christian, Mississippi is the home of the Cat Island Cruiser – the 2018 official cocktail of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
The inspiration for this drink was drawn from the coast’s unique vibe and feel. Catherine “Cat” Ryan used to manage the Seersucker Bar at Bacchus on the Beach. Regulars often referred to the outdoor bar as “Cat Island” in her honor. Cat Island is also the name of one of Mississippi’s barrier island. Ryan created this cocktail – a blend of rum, mango, mint and lime – while watching the sunset over the Mississippi Sound at the “Cat Island” bar.
