Not everyone can take two weeks off for a trip to Africa, but if you’re feeling like you need a change of pace without the long trip, visit Kalahari Resort in the Pocono Mountains. This resort has America’s largest indoor water park in addition to one of the state’s top three largest convention centers, as well as a full-service hotel, spa and multitude of restaurants ranging from a buffet and coffee shop to upscale comfort food. The spirit of Africa is everywhere—from the décor down to every last detail, so it’s no wonder they offer an African spin on this Cuban cocktail.

A unique mix of bitters creates a treat for the senses in this seasonal sip from Corktown’s Two James Spirits. While typically busy hosting tours and private events or slinging craft cocktails in its tasting room, the distillery’s team has shifted its efforts during the coronavirus outbreak. It’s been producing hand sanitizer for hospitals, police and fire departments across the Detroit metro, while lifting spirits with creative curbside cocktail kits.
