Whether you’re headed to the lake or the beach for a long day in the sun, it’s best to be prepared. You don’t want to miss out on salt, sand, and water because you’re hungry or in need of a refreshing drink. Read on for our list of beach day essentials, plus some fantastic batch cocktail recipes to take with you.

Beach Day Essentials

Sunscreen: let’s all be responsible here. If you’re going to be outside in the sun all day, sun protection is a must.

Beach Umbrella: See above. Plus, having a shade respite is heaven in Austin’s heat. 

Snacks: Don’t be the person who ruins a beautiful sunset because you’re hangry from being on the beach all day without food… snacks are necessary. 

Batch Cocktails: A Blood Orange Margarita or Spiked Lemonade on the beach is a DREAM. It’s refreshing, delicious, and easy to bring with you. See below for our favorite batch cocktail recipes!
