Drinks By the Pool... Yes Please!

Just imagine this: you're on vacation (or possibly playing hooky from work), it's a hot summer day, and you're lounging poolside with an ice-cold, refreshing drink in hand... Ahhhhhhhhhh! Can you picture it? Now, stop imagining that and get yourself back to Backwater Jack's to live it! 

Not only does our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant mix up the best cocktails at our 4 (yes, we said 4!) bars onsite, but two of those bars are positioned poolside! There's the big bar inside the main restaurant, our original tiki bar overlooking the lake, the lakeside and poolside tiki bar next to the Sushi & Asian Grill, and our swim-up bar that can be reached from both in and out of the water. 

So, we've established that there are plenty of places to grab a drink at Backwater Jack's. Now, here are a few suggestions of what you might enjoy sipping on the next time you treat yourself to a day at the best lakeside pool at the Lake of the Ozarks

Frozen Favorites
Frozen drinks are a must on a hot day in the lake area, especially if you're hanging out by the pool. A few extremely popular choices around here are the Rum Runner, the Pina Colada, and Strawberry Daiquiris.

After only one sip, just about everyone falls in love with the sweet, fruity flavors in a Rum Runner. It packs quite a "kick" on its own, but adding a floater on top makes it even more enjoyable! Pina Coladas offer a refreshingly tropical taste for anyone that loves coconut, pineapple, and of course, rum. Daiquiris come in a variety of flavors, but strawberry seems to be the most popular choice, possibly from all those "virgin" ones enjoyed as a kid.

Of course, mixing your frozen concoctions in the same glass is another wonderful option! Put together a Pina Colada and a Strawberry Daquiri and you've got a "Miami Vice." That's pretty good, but we highly suggest combining a Rum Runner and a Pina Colada for a "must-try" drink while you're at the Lake of the Ozarks - the "Pain in the A**!" 

Pain in the A**
If you've never heard of this fantastic frozen drink, then you've probably never been to a bar at the Lake of the Ozarks before! This creative concoction takes the wonderful flavors of Rum Runners and Pina Coladas and puts them together, beautifully side-by-side, in the same glass.

On their own, each of these drinks tastes great but combine the two and you'll have found your new favorite cocktail! Top it with a floater and you're on your way to an awesome day at the pool. If you happen to join us on a "Crabby Ol' Monday," we offer special discounts on our Pains, Rum Runners, and pounds of delicious Snow Crab!

Margaritas are always an excellent choice, whether you're on the lake, in the pool, or on dry land! Both frozen and on the rocks this tantalizing tequila treat is just one of those classic flavors that is always delicious and refreshing. (Especially the way we make them here at Backwater Jack's!)

This is another cocktail that we feature as a daily special every week. On our "Tequila Tuesdays," we've got some very special savings in store for you on house margaritas and also shots of Sauza and Jose Cuervo tequila. Keep an eye on the Backwater Jack's Facebook page too, because we've got a Margarita Pool Party coming your way in July, with lots of flavored margaritas, live music, giveaways, and more!

An Ice-Cold Brew
Last, but certainly not least, is a good old standby - an ice-cold beer! These can be incredibly hydrating on a hot day. You'll find a wonderful variety to choose from behind each of our bars.

This tasty beverage happens to be featured in yet another one of our daily deals. Each "Raw Deal Thursday" canned beers are on sale along with some unbelievable pricing on oysters, shrimp, and wings. (It's a very popular day around here!)

Those are a few of the most popular drinks ordered on a daily basis at our waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, but nowhere near all of the refreshing beverages that our fully-stocked bars have waiting for you. What's your favorite drink to indulge in while you're sitting poolside, loving life, at Backwater Jack's? Come on in to treat yourself any day of the week. We've always got a drink here with your name on it!
