Hurricane, which is a piña colada and strawberry daiquiris together. I love piña coladas and on my last time on the Harmony my bartender suggested I try the Hurricane! Best of both worlds!

Oh looks yummy. Is this different from a Miami Vice or is it the same thing? Thanks

Sorry, that is NOT a Hurricane.  To get a real Hurricane, you need to be on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. 😄

 

And do NOT drink more than one.

Looks like a Miami Vice to me.  Hurricanes aren't frozen.

Mine is the Red Velvet Cake. I only saw that in one bar on the Freedom of the Seas. Can you get that on other ships as well?  In particular, the Ovation?

I should think so, I had one in the R Bar on both the Brilliance and Explorer recently

Agreed.  I've always called that a Miami Vice...my go to drink when poolside.  I'd go so far as to say that to get a real Hurricane, you must be in Pat O'Brien's on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

There are other places to get them.  But the home is Pat O'Briens.

 

Had on there in June. YUM.

 

And later, had my first Sazerac at the Olde Absinthe Bar.  VERY tasty.  But I don't think they have Absinthe on board any RCI ships. 😄

Espresso martini......garnished with three coffee beans on top. YUM!

 

Had it for the first time at the Rising Tide Bar on Harmony. I've added the Espresso Martini to my list of Martinis I make at home......well there are only two. The other is a Chocolate Martini and it is to die for!

What’s in these two drinks please?

Lava flow is half pina colada and half frozen daiquiri.

I love a Grey Goose and frozen lemonade on the pool deck. So refreshing and not too sweet!

 

 

Can you REALLY tell the difference between Grey Goose and well vodka, when it is mixed with lemonade??????

The cruise officially starts when I have my first pina colada, it’s my go to cruise drink. I also enjoy a good lava flow or rum punch & on my last cruise I took a martini making class where I fell in love with the strawberry shortcake martini.

I have many favorites but my go to every evening is the classic Manhattan made with Whistle Pig Rye.

I am generally more of a wine gal but a cruise is not a cruise without having the first drink be a pina colada.  That just means vacation to me.  🙂
