New Diamond Drinks menu on the Jewel

Recommended Posts

I usually feel bad vodka in the morning.  The more distilled the better, though I'm not fond of the Goose.

Am I misremembering that triple sec used to be included on the list? Or was it just available without having been listed?

 

I appreciate that they are including a nicer Scotch Whisky, but agree with the others above:  Where's the Bourbon?

No limits on the drinks in the DL during the C&A HH. You will also get three C&A drinks loaded on your Seapass card each evening that can be used at other bars that are only good during the C&A HH. 

So could we use our sea pass card for like frozen margarita during HH?

Thanks John. This Diamond stuff is new to us. The two nighter on the Mariner will be our very first Diamond cruise.

I spy a welcome introduction of Sauv Blanc which was not on the other menu from Jewel !

 

I think we had a “chat” about SB being available on some cruise and not on others already.

Consistently inconsistent.

If you can’t stomach it straight, it’s the same crap in a mix. They improved the Diamond whiskey and scotch, seems like it wouldn’t have been hard to improve the Vodka. They also added USA number one beer, Bud Light. 

 

Amsterdam is nothing more than paint thinner. 

I agree with Amsterdam description. However, it's £20 a bottle here. Certainly not worth that.

Looks like it's C Morgans for me know although Kraken would have been better.

Can't complain though as it's free

I just can’t believe people drink crappy stuff just because it’s FREE.

Bartender said this new menu was announced this week.  I didn't ask if it is fleetwide. I'm not thrilled with the change in gin brand from Tanqueray to Beefeaters.  New menu includes some additional liquors too.

Thanks for posting.  Like the changes, especially the one for Gin.  Love my Beefeater gin & tonic drink during the happy Hours.

Baileys is gone, with a substitute. 

Sad about this change.  Baileys was my preferred last drink of the night.

That's why I use the 3 drinks on my card. I can get Grey Goose that way.

On the other hand, you should try Scotland at New Year. Some places I would settle for thinners

You are lucky.  I have been 50/50 getting absolut and grey goose at bars.  But once I find them, I do tend to return every night.

Still better tham NA. I was on Navigator Ta. Managed to get GG at the Sky Bar until I found out I could get a triple Grey Goose and a can of sprite for $4. Never managed to get that anywhere in the world cheaper

What if you get your drinks at 'any bar'?  I keep reading about the lounge being full and mere Diamonds being excluded.  🙂

 

I think you’re confusing this with concierge/suite lounges. 

 

But if the Diamond lounge is too crowded for your taste then you can use the 3 drink coupons at another bar, as davekathy mentioned above.

Hope the Sauv Blanc is still available when we go on Jewel at the beginning of Feb :classic_smile:

My DW and wallet would really appreciate a SB included on the list.

My apologies to Milwaukee Eight.  Not meant to quote you...

CHECK OUT THE VIDEO AFTER THE 5:00 MARK, 

 

This goes for a large percent of Rum produced in the Caribbean and various brands of Bourbon which are not really 100% produced by the names on the label as implied.  ...

I agree 100% about the "Beefeater" Gin. That has to be the worst tasting Gin on the planet, IMHO. Tastes like it was poured through a dirty sock.

Tastes sure are different and Beef does have a strong citrus and spice that a lot of people may not like but they did sell about 3 million cases last year and lots of gin fanciers like the fuller taste it delivers. At least it tastes like gin in a gin and tonic.. LOL.

I was always under the impression that the beverage menu for the SL was different(more selections) than the beverage menu for the DL.😕

If that video was of interest here is one more dealing with mostly Ryes and Bourbons...

I thought that's what all gin tastes like.  :classic_dry:

A couple of years ago, when we were doing the Brilliance frequently, I asked the Bar Manager for Triple Sec to be added to my DW's margaritas.  The next week it was on the printed menu, which I stole (excuse me - borrowed indefinitely).  It has never been on the official corporate list but many bar tenders will make our margaritas with it, if asked.
