Default Oh Bartender...I'll have a________

Picture it...you are on the deck, relaxing by the pool, or, at one of the many bars after dinner, and you want a drink......what do you get? Are you willing to try something new, or are you stuck in a rut? Maybe we can help make that rut go away!

Share your favorite foo foo drink with all of us just dreaming of a cruise, or for those getting ready to leave soon...One of our suggestions,could be the next fave for many Cruisemates.

A few years back, I tried an apple martini,and felt my toes tingle....next I tried a watermelon martini,and I thought I was going to LOVE it,but...not so much..A mojito too,makes my toes tap

I am not much of a drinker and I like the sweet drinks. I usually have a Pina Colada or Bahama Mama or a Fuzzy Navel.

Is it before noon or just after? I'll have a Bloody Mary, no salt, no celery, no fruit, just olives (as many as can be stuck on a stick !). DH will have the same, only celery, no olives.

Afternoon? I'll have a frozen Margarita, no salt, just lime. DH will have the same, but no lime.

Night? I'll have a White Russian. DH will have a martini.

I feel like I should be saying "HIC" !

If I'm going to have a foo foo drink it is usually a Sea Breeze. The ones on Princess were the best but since then I haven't had one that was as good.

What I always treat myself to on a cruise is a Maker's Mark, straight up.

Alas though it is only one or two of either during the course of the cruise. The standard drink is "Coke".

I tried the much heralded BBC (Bailey's Banana and Cream) and didn't like it. Far too sweet for me.

Take care and "Cheers"
Mike

We alway go for the drink of the day. They are inexpensive and a fun way to ty something new, that is until you find one you love... then you go back for that once more!

Hey Bartender! I also say it depends on the time of day, mornings I am a gym rat so probably some kind of protein shake or juice. Afternoons by the pool I will happily take a mojito and after dinner while dancing the night away something refreshing like cranberry/vodka.

I'm really just a beer guy, but I do enjoy a Mojito. Being Canadian, I do like a Ceasar.[its a bloody mary made with clamato juice instead of tomato juice.]Can't seem to get one in the U.S., but if you have one, you will like it more than a Bloody Mary.

I have to have a Funship special for sail away.
And I enjoy at least 1 Miami Vice while lounging in a deck chair on a sea day.

My Husband likes the Kiss on the lips...I like it when he orders it and the bartender giggles.

It's been a while since we've sailed Carnival and I have a question. Is the Drink of the Day less expensive than other similar drinks? On Princess the Drink of the Day was just what was featured that day. It wasn't less expensive. Learned that quickly !

Bill, I've seen Canadian's order Bloody Ceasar's on Princess ships and had no problems getting one, so I'd think you could order one on Carnival .

No matter the line it is usually the DOD, that is after I've read what it is, some just don't get to me.
