An ideal drink on a hot summer day…
or a cold winter's night.
Refreshing and tasty without being overly tangy or sweet.
Bartender: Big Mike
- 1 oz of Bacardi rum
- 1 oz of Malibu rum
- V8 Tropical Splash
- 0.5 oz of lime juice
- topper of Sprite
Directions: In a shaker, combine Bacardi,
Malibu and lime juice. Shake well with ice and pour
into glass. Top with Sprite and add grenadine for flavor
and color to taste. Put glass to lips and enjoy…
Bar: The Beaver Dam is a popular watering
hole for both foreigners and Taiwanese living in and
visiting Pingtung. With two flat screens playing international
sports, a pool table, darts, a foosball table, a full
stage and dance floor with stripper's pole, there's
really no excuse to be bored here. The owners, Mike
and Darren, two Canadians from Saskatchewan, schedule
many bands from all over South Taiwan to rock the Dam.
A good range of western foods, inexpensive import beer
as well as an easy-going atmosphere make the Beaver
Dam a great place to loosen up after a busy day.
