Best Desserts & Drinks to Enjoy in Myrtle Beach This Winter

Vacation is all about indulging, and the decadent desserts and cozy winter drinks in Myrtle Beach are some of the most flavorful ways to treat yourself. Once the summer season fades, vacationers gladly trade in their fruity cocktails and ice cream for spiked ciders and rich desserts featuring warming winter spices. A bonus of visiting in the off-season—beyond the holiday decorations and glowing fireplaces—is that when the crowds are gone, you’re free to linger over a decadent slice of pie or after-dinner drink as long as you wish.

Sea Captain’s House

This favorite Myrtle Beach restaurant offers seasonal drinks and a holiday dessert menu within two miles of Bay View Resort. Indulge in homemade cakes or pies generously topped with streusel, ganache, and other decadent fixings. Warming cinnamon and spices awaken your palate, and the drinks complement any festive dish. Try a peppermint-flavored martini that tastes like candy canes or opt for a bourbon and apple drink with a black pepper and ginger kick. Catch the holiday happy hour in November through the end of February at Sea Captain’s House—it’s one of the best in Myrtle Beach.
