Default Favorite On-board drink

All this talk of rum punch has got me thirsty...and very eager to set sail on the Voyager to finally partake of a BBC, which I learned of recently.

What's your favorite cruise booze?

Onboard, it has to be a piņa colada. Very easy to make a good one, unlike a margarita. I'll reserve those for Cozumel.

That's a hard question. I will choose my favorites from these categories:
Bottle Drink: Beer (various Mexican imports mostly-I live in Texas you know)
Hard Stuff: Rum or Crown Royal with a splash of coke
Foo-foo Drinks: Pina Colada
Sweeeet Drink: Tia Maria just over ice, or maybe with a drop of milk

Now there's a touch question. On land I'm not a drinker.. I sell the stuff, so it wouldn't be good to drink the profits <G>
But get me on a ship and I have to have Creamsciscles and BBCs.

for Paul.. BBC = Baileys, Banana and Colada mix.. if the sun is shining, just about the finest slush drink one could want. Excellent for we folks that rarely drink, cause they taste like Banana milkshakes.

Regards,
Kuki

BBC, Banana, Baily's Colada, first discovered by me and friends at Megan's Bar
tiki bar...the trick, make sure to tell the bar waiter you want it VERY thick and
sweet. We have tried various cruise lines, but find that Celebrity makes them the best. YUMMY!!

Normally I would say pina colada but the pina coladas on the Majesty were awful so I drank Rum swizzles, dark & stormies (ginger beer and dark rum), and mai tai's. I have to say that the BBC sounds fabulous - I will be trying that one on my next!

Shaken, not stirred.

Now, if the cruise ships would just take instruction from Maureen's Martini Bar in Wildwood, NJ ...

The idea of foo-foo drinks makes my teeth hurt.

pamda,
Ed & I will be heading for Maureen's shortly. Walking the boards up and taking the infamous Tramcar back. Will have one for you and the Cap'n. We will have to be careful to "watch the Tramcar, please".

Hey Disneyblonde,
So you like those BBC's, they are the best. Kuki here had me try my first one, and since then thats the only drink I purchase while cruising, especially good out by the pool. REally hits the spot!

K...these are very interesting.

Mermaid: What's a good Mexican beer? I had a Kalik in the Bahamas, and loved it cuz it tastes like keg beer.

Carole: What's in a Love Boat?

Bostongal: What's in a rum swizzle?

Cindy: What's in a Miami Vice?

Trying to decide which one's I'm going to order next week while I'm basking by the pool...

re:

Please be sure to tell Maureen that the Travel Media Showcase gang is still recovering from our wonderful "happy hour" with her and her AbFab staff.

I'm glad to see the website address so I can send an e-thank you note.

Hummm is it the drink or the glass-- Got sort of used to Cosmos/in a very large glass on the Millie--somehow they just dont taste the same back home. Still on the quest for the perfect margarita-- very good ones in Coz. and a place locally where I live. My heart has a special place for JD-- CA and I have that in commom-lol
Cheers to whatevers being served and to whoever is serving
Take care
April

DisneyBlonde - I am pretty sure (if I can remember from Bartending) that Rum Swizzles have this in them - uh wait here's a recipe:

4 oz. each Black Seal Rum and Barbados Rum (Bacardi works as well)
2 lemons juiced
5 oz pineapple juice
5 oz. orange juice
Sugar syrup
a few dashes of bitters

Mix with lots of cracked ice - strain into cocktail glasses - enjoy!!!

A frozen grasshopper - really good on a hot day in the Caribbean. Celebrity made some really good ones - Princess didn't quite have it down.
Since Alaska is my new favorite sailing I will have to find a new drink - don't think a frozen drink tastes quite as good in cool weather! Maybe hot chocolate with Bailey's yum!

Disneyblonde....A Miami Vice is 1/2 Strawberry and 1/2 Banana Daquiri. The best ones I ever had were on the Paradise.

To date it's always been bannana daq's, but Miami Vice sounds good, so do the BBC's, gonna try those next time around.
