Mine is Kiss on the Lips. I have had it on the Holiday and Sensation. It is a mango and peach frozen drink.

I'm usually not into Fu Fu's but the Sea Breeze on Island Princess was quite tasty. Otherwise it's a Beefeater Martini with three olives. When you get true cocktail olives it's wonderful.

On Statendam, in the Ocean Bar, Nino made sure I had cocktail olives in my Martini.

Take care,
Mike

I hate to be boring, but my favorite is a frozen Margarita, on ANY ship!

I have never tried making one at home!
But I found this one recipe online:
21â?„2 oz. light rum
1 lime
1 tbsp. simple syrup
mint leaves (8 or so sprigs worth)
ice
club soda
tall glass
spoon, or some other utensil that can be used to mash the mint leaves

Make simple syrup: Heat equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan until just before boiling and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. Make up a big batch – say a cup of sugar and a cup of water – than toss it in the fridge … it’ll easily keep for a couple of weeks, during which time you’ll be able to whip up mojitos at a moment’s notice, to the delight of your very fortunate friends.

Place the mint leaves and 1 tbsp. of the simple syrup (cooled) in the glass, then squish it all around with a spoon (or whatever appropriate utensil you can find) for 20-30 seconds, until you can smell that good minty smell.

Cut the lime in half. Squeeze the juice out from both halves into the glass, then drop one half into the glass.

Pour in the rum and stir.

Add plenty of ice, then top off the mixture with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!

They call it the "Cuban cousin" of the mint julep.

I had a Mojito for the first time at Emeril's NOLA in New Orleans. I've been hooked ever since. I asked for one on the Destiny and had to explain to the bartender how to make it. It still turned out great.

Fruitcake,
Doesn't HAL make the best Mojito's ever? I can't wait to have one (or more ) when we get back aboard a HAL ship in January.

Just returned from the Holiday. On the drink menu at the bar a Kiss on the Lips is called a Mango Dacquai. So good!

Virgin Margarita on the Rocks... on ANY RCCL ship... for some odd reason... the Celebrity ones don't taste the same... i think it's because they use a different mix...

Mango Tango ... during the day when I am up on the pool deck....

Last great drink I had was called Shut the F*** Up... it was a special mix by the bartender ... don't ask me what was in it... but it was the best drink I have had in a long time... I know it had 6 different kinds of booze in it... and OJ and pineapple juice.... I tried to watch him make the next round... but everything became a blur..... I wonder why????

After reading about all these fantastic drink favorites, I'm going to need the Betty Ford Clinic when I return from my next cruise.

BBC. Bailey's Banana Colada. Had it on Grandeur for the first time then on the Summit. Like drinking a Banana milkshake. Very addictive.

I have to go with Carnival's dirty banana. It is a delicious frozen drink that tastes like a chocolate covered banana with a kick. Yum!

I usually get Carnival's Miami Vice which, I think, is half Strawberry Daiquiri and half Pina Colada.

The Goombay Smash hands down! What a happy little smile maker

Met this little buddy on the Spirit and then again on the Conquest. Actually went looking for him once we boarded the Conquest!!!!

Scale ingredients to servings
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz coconut rum
4 oz pineapple juice

Fill a tall glass with ice, add all ingredients and shake well

I've only been on one cruise so far but I loved the Fun Ship on the Fascination last year. So good! The Kiss on the Lips sounds yummy.
I'm thinking of buying the recipe books this time around.

I agree with Fruitcake, the Mojitos on any HAL ship, they are the best we have had anywhere.

I love egg nog with rum. However, for some reason during the winter months, i always crave white russians (made with Stolichnaya vodka, Kahlua coffee liquer, and Half and Half)
