Cunard Martini Mixology on QV

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I've previously mentioned cocktail classes on Cunard cruises and I thought it would be interesting to share a few pictures from yesterday’s ‘Martini Mixology’ class in the Commodore Club on QV. 1FBB2D04-809E-49B1-93FA-608432D3D026.thumb.jpeg.73c49b854d7a6b77b8c5ceca4408fd69.jpeg

Looks great, which was your favourite ?

 

Transatlantic Love Affair was my favourite. 

 

There was also a gin tasting onboard but I didn’t make it.

What is the cost of the class? And does it include any samples or full drinks? I dare say, if I  drank more than two, I'd be flying on my cruise!

Does the Transatlantic Love Affair have just a dash of Prosecco? And how is the bourbon Mist applied - Is it literally just Spritzed over the drink? I think I'll try making those at today's happy hour.

Hello, 

 

I think it was $23, which was very good value. I did not feel short changed! The crew were also happy to pour tasting samples of the ingredients too, so I got to try a sherry and some vermouth. 

 

They are sample sizes, but if you drink all four you will have had at least the equivalent of two full size cocktails.

 

The way the class works is that the person giving the class makes full size versions while giving demonstrations and explaining the history of the cocktails and their ingredients. The samples given to guests are made at the bar and poured in front of you at the table. 

 

There is a quiz towards the end and winners are able to select the remaining full size cocktail of their choice. 

 

Each guest is also given a plate of garnishes to use to play with flavours. 

 

The Transatlantic Love Affair is topped up with Prosecco, yes. Apparently they only have one type of Prosecco onboard - sorry, I can’t remember the name of it. 

 

We we were told to sip the drink first and then the mist was applied from below (see my photo) to demonstrate how it impacts taste.

I saw the photo of the drink with the hand behind it. I missed the mist, however. Thanks. I'm hoping they have a similar class on the QM next week.

The prosecco on wine list is zonin special curve brut,  so expect it was that. 

 

Yes. I’m pretty sure it was.
