Hi there - last may 2008 a pint of draught beer on independence of the seas was about $5.70, but i have been told its increased quite a bit since then, if you like cocktails, last year they were doing all sorts of cocktails for around $8 and you got to keep the glass which was very nice.
The best advice is look at the price list in which ever bar you are in they should normally all be the same but for instance if you ask for whisky and water you will get that but it might be cheaper to say I want Grouse; if you ask for gin they will give you the Saphire option and if they have Gordon's it will be cheaper, so watch this one. I pay for Gordon's gin/tonic and Captain Morgan and ice $12.95 now that was £6.50 but likely will be nearer £8 now unless the pound improves against the dollar. Despite the weak pound you are still drinking in a floating 4 star hotel and you should compare those prices with what you would likely pay back home, I still think they are OK I am convinced we do get more than a 5th of a gill on the ship ?
