Carnival Cruise Line is serving up the good times (minus a sore head the following day!), with their new onboard range of delicious alcohol-free cocktails.
Mixing up some of the most popular cocktails among guests, your favourite drink will now be available from the mixologists at Carnival’s ever-popular Alchemy Bar- now with non-alcoholic spirits.
These alternatives have been expertly produced by industry-leading distiller Lyre’s, making Carnival Cruise Line the first to offer a complete range of alcohol-free cocktails.
As the most awarded line of non-alcoholic spirits, and a global leader in the emerging industry, Lyre’s uses all-natural flavours within their classic cocktails: including essences, extracts, and distillates to match the aroma, taste and appearance of each individual beverage.
“Our new partnership with Lyre’s gives guests who want non-alcoholic cocktails the best options at sea. We’ve seen popularity for non-alcoholic cocktails grow rapidly, so to meet that trend, our mixologists have been working to craft alternative versions of our most popular cocktails with none of the alcohol, but all the flavour,”Zachary Sulkes, Carnival’s senior director of beverage operations
Here are just seven popular Alchemy Bar cocktails that have been recreated with Lyre’s:
Red passion fruit nectar, fresh lime juice and a hint of orange mix, with Lyre’s White Cane instead of vodka to create this swoon-worthy drink.
Spicy Chipotle Pineapple Martini
Lyre’s Agave Blanco stands in for vodka to bring this spicy, pineapple cocktail into its non-alcoholic form.
Orange juice, pineapple and fresh lime juice are mixed with Lyre’s White Cane and Spiced Cane, instead of dark and coconut rum.
Hearts of Fire
The award-winning concoction, featuring fresh thyme and raspberries, is re-imagined with Lyre’s Dry London instead of gin.
Restorative Basil Drop
Lyre’s Dry London is mixed with fresh basil and citrus to stimulate and restore the senses.
The Perfect Storm
This invigorating boost features strawberry puree, fresh lime and a hit of rosemary, plus Lyre’s Dry London instead of vodka.
Another award-winning favourite among Carnival guests, watermelon nectar, cucumber, lime juice and a splash of orange juice is mixed with Lyre’s Agave Blanco instead of vodka- delivering that same light and delicious flavour.
The Alchemy Bar is features on almost every Carnival cruise ship sailing from the US. The new range of non-alcoholic cocktails will be offered on ships homeported in Australia at a later date.
In addition to this exciting new range of beverages served at the Alchemy Bar, Carnival’s main dining rooms will now also be serving alcohol-free prosecco, among many wines offered across the fleet.// END - About the Author ?>
