Big Fish Bowl at House of Big Fish
It's too obvious that the House of Big Fish & Ice Cold Beer sells . . . beer. When you read through the extensive beer list, don't overlook the cocktail menu. It contains a few treasures, and of course, it helps that many of the drinks are served in 21 oz. schooner glasses.
Made with Malibu rum, vodka, blue curacao, pineapple juice, sweet and sour mix, and Sprite, the Big Fish Bowl is a surprisingly light and refreshing drink for its size. It's not overly sweet and will allow you to imagine you're eating seafood on some tropical island--although ocean views of Laguna aren't too shabby.
In my opinion, this drink was made to be washed down with that seared ahi tuna you ordered (try pairing it with the pineapple mango salsa). Plus, they drop a gummy shark into your Big Fish Bowl. It doesn't get much better than that.
