Caipiroska and Grilled Octopus (Hvar, Croatia)

The island of Hvar is the hot spot of the Dalmatian Riviera. Handsome stone alleys are lined with chic restaurants, hotel promenades, and cocktail lounges. One notable one, Carpe Diem, has become the center of the island’s beach scene.

At Carpe Diem, sip delicious mojitos and taste appetizers like grilled octopus, while you look out onto the Mediterranean Sea and dance to the DJs' music. Ask the bartender to make you a caipiroska, a refreshing concoction of lime juice, vodka, and crushed ice.
