Fat Tuesday Daiquiri Bar: Small Bar with Great Character and Boozy Drinks
Local Expert's Rating:
4.5 / 5
The Bottom Line:

Fat Tuesday is a solid alternative to the real deal if you can't get to New Orleans. Their boozy blended drinks offer a great way to cool off, and refillable souvenir mugs cut the cost of your refill almost in half. Don't expect much of a food menu, but if you're craving a snack, their wings and fries are top-notch.

An outpost of a New Orleans favorite, Fat Tuesday Daiquiri Bar offers a huge variety of blended, boozy, slushy drinks on tap and on slushy machine–every day. A tiny bar with character, it’s a great gathering place for friends or a fun stop if you’re wanting to let loose and try out a variety of flavors. Whether you’re craving a spiked slush or wishing you could teleport to the French Quarter, Fat Tuesday Daiquiri Bar is your place. Choose from a variety of cup sizes–including reusable, discounted refill mugs–and go to town with the flavor/alcohol combos. Fat Tuesday’s bartenders make a mean hurricane, and the daiquiris themselves are the perfect way to cool off after a day at the beach or pool. 

You won’t find many food items on the menu, but Fat Tuesday makes decent wings, chicken tenders, and fries to complement your drink. If you’re hoping for a wider variety of menu options, you have plenty of options in the nearby Sandestin area. 

Menu Favorites Include: 

The 190 Octane
A fan favorite for good reason, but be aware–it’s stronger than you might think! 

The Hurricane
A combo of rum, lemon juice, and passion fruit syrup, frozen and blended to perfection. It’s hard to go wrong with this Gulf Coast classic. 

Margarita
Blended margarita perfection. Ask for an extra shot of tequila if you’re feeling adventurous. 

Wings
Fat Tuesday doesn’t sell many food items, but the ones they have are top-notch. Their flavorful, crisp wings are just salty enough, not too greasy, with excellent sauce options–and served hot every time. A bar staple that Fat Tuesday has perfected. 

Fat Tuesday is particularly worth the stop if you’re going back more than once during the day; their refillable mugs make a great souvenir, and refills are significantly reduced cost if you spring for one. The actual location is relatively small, with bar seating and a few seats outside. You can expect a cozy, casual atmosphere and a well-kept bar, but the bartenders’ customer service skills can be inconsistent; sometimes service is great; other times, it leaves a lot to be desired. 

Fat Tuesday Daiquiri Bar is located in Miramar Beach just across from the Baytowne Wharf Fishing Pier. It’s a great stop after (or during) a day of fishing on the pier or spending time on the area’s beaches. If you’re looking for a more substantial dinner spot after stopping for your daiquiri, you’ll find plenty of great options within easy walking distance. 

Insider Tips:
– You can request an extra shot of your favorite liquor to be added to any of the blended drink options of the day. 
– Some blended drinks are stronger than others; don’t hesitate to ask about the different flavors to learn how strong they are and what their flavor profiles are like.
