For the past 40 years, Boston’s on the Beach and Delray Beach have gone together like the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park’s Green Monster. So with Major League Baseball’s Opening Day less than two weeks away, I give you “The Green Monstah” at Boston’s on the Beach.
Here’s its lineup:
1.25 oz. Bacardi Superior Rum
1 oz. Midori Melon Liqueur
2 oz. cream of coconut
4 oz. pineapple juice
Shake and pour over ice.
The “Monstah’’ is a great way to toast the Red Sox’s home opener – April 9 against the Toronto Blue Jays. Rest-assured, many Sox fans – and baseball fans in general – love to call Boston’s on the Beach their favorite Delray Beach/Boca Raton bar and restaurant. Boston’s sports (pardon the pun) more than 30 TV’s and offer live music two to three nights per week.
The bar and eatery recently added some new menu items, including Spicy Cauliflower “Wings,”
the vegan-oriented Impossible Burger, Fries ’n Gravy and the Caprese Club – Rosemary-breaded chicken breast is topped with buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, and speck chips on rosemary focaccia with a basil aioli.
“Just kind of spruce up (the menu) a bit, like everyone else,’’ said Boston’s long-time general manager Mark DeAtley.
“People still come here for the lobster, lobster rolls and clams – things they can’t get anywhere else.’’
After 40 years on the extreme east of end of Delray’s Beach’s Atlantic Ave. – and across from the beach, “We’re kind of like a granddaddy,’’ DeAtley said. “We’ve been there and seen it all. We’ve made some adaptations over the years (such as a renovation in 2012), but the ocean and the fresh fish and live entertainment is why people come here.’’
