The Cape Horn from the Longboard in Sullivan's Island
Image by Annie Hamnett

The Longboard, a sleek island bar with modern flair, is an excellent compliment to the Sullivan’s Island scene. The beach town outside of Charleston is known as a premium vacation destination with a strong local community. On a typical weekend at The Longboard, families with young children, couples of all ages, and groups of friends can be found catching up over upscale tiki cocktails and plates of oysters, toasts, and other fare from the seasonally driven menu.

The Cape Horn cocktail is a hit from their brunch cocktail menu. This cross between a breakfast classic, the mimosa, and an island staple, the margarita, is named for the spot where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet. It has plenty of breakfast-worthy fruitiness from the Grand Marnier, agave, and blood orange juice, but it’s anchored by warming tequila and tart lime juice for enough structure to hold up to a savory strata or french toast.
