What are your favorite alcoholic beverages under $13 other than beer and wine when on Princess?

Recommended Posts

Quantum of Solace from Crooners, but it’s no longer on the menu. It must be a bartender who knew the old menu and knows how to charge it.

Another great drink no longer on the menu is a NorthSider.  It is made with curacao and some type of rum.  Once in awhile a bartender will know how to make them.

Ohhhh, was that the blue one? I've never found out what it was called. Tasted lovely but forgot to ask the name.

No, it has a half shot of Chambord. So, purple, not blue.

It was around the 007 theme but it was definitely blue not purple. Thanks anyway.

Manhattan, straight up made with Jack Daniel's, sweet vermouth and bitters and they better not forget the maraschino cherry.

The almond martini (I think they have renamed it), dark and stormy, champagne as a default, the frozen mint chocolate thing (like 500 calories and too much sugar, but tastes so good), titos and soda with a splash of whatever juice you like (I usually go with pineapple), and once I get to know a bartender I have them make me something of their choice.

A regular ol' caipirinha... it's lime, some kind of sweetener (usually simple syrup onboard, brown sugar or even molasses for something interesting), and cachaga, a particular type of liquor, on ice.

 

Or a dirty banana if you just want a milkshake.

That lovely blue one I believe is the Skyfall.  By far the "prettiest" drink I have ever seen.

I don’t recall every trying that one, but if I can find someone to do a Quantum of Solace maybe I’ll try a Skyfall during my next cruise

Judging by your Avatar, I see why you like the purple and/or blue drinks.  As a fellow Northern Californian, I'd offer to treat you to the Skyfall, but alas, the Drink Package has taken the fun out of that old conversation starter. 😉

Raspberry Romance was my favorite. Only because when I was feeling a bit off from the waves, it calmed my stomach so I actually wanted to eat. There were a few from Crooners that we just loved. I would have to locate a menu 😉

Oh that actually sounds familiar.....well remembered. That will be my first drink next cruise, hopefully June next year.

 

Thanks.

Rossini - it was on the Crooner's menu but I didn't see it on our Grand cruise in November,  however the bartender's still made it. The inside of a champagne flute coated with raspberry syrup, then a shot of Chambord and topped off with champagne. Yummy!
