  1. I assure you, these are official recipes. Unless the guests ask for some tweaks in the drink, bartenders should do their best to follow the recipe. Unfortunately, many of them feel like they're doing the guests a favor by adding their own spin to the drink. The beverage manager on one ship knew of this project of mine and so he asked me, "Are my bartenders doing it right? You're the right person to ask." The official recipe calls for Bacardi Superior, not Bacardi 8. Royal uses the Sunsational Tropical Mix for the Labadoozie (aka Coco Loco). Not sure if this has changed, now that they use Finest Call for many of their cocktails. I tried making the Desert Pear Margarita with homemade desert pear syrup. I wasn't happy with it. Then I tried it with the REAL puree... still not happy. So I had to order the MONIN syrup that Royal uses
  2. SPARKLING BLUE HAWAIIAN Hideaway Beach Perfect Day at Coco Cay NOTE: This is one of the new cocktails served at Hideaway Beach on Coco Cay. Some may say this is more of a "Blue Hawaii" than a "Blue Hawaiian," but this is how Royal named it. If you use regular pineapple juice, the drink will be more green or turquoise than blue. I used clarified pineapple juice. I had to label this as a copycat recipe because I have not gotten the exact measurements for each of the ingredients. A cruising friend asked for them but she was only given ratios. The measurements on this recipe are based on several recipes from online sources. The search goes on for the "official" recipe.

  4. GRAND SABOR MARGARITA Sabor NOTE: This margarita is no longer on Sabor's current menu but they still serve it. The Cedilla Açai Liqueur was hard to find in my area, but I did find a store that carries it.
  5. AVOCADO MARGARITA Sabor NOTE: Don't forget to add 1 oz of sugar syrup. The original recipe says to use 0.5 oz of avocado. That's about one tablespoon. It looked too thin and the lime juice overpowered the avocado flavor. Recipes I found online mostly used half an avocado per serving, so that is how much I used for this.
  6. I don't know why. There are several cocktails where not all the ingredients are listed on the menu, but they're on the recipe given to bartenders. My presentation style is to use what's on the menus and add the measurements. Look at the menu vs the recipe
  7. JALAPEÑO-CUCUMBER MARGARITA Sabor NOTE: Don't forget to add 0.5 oz of sugar syrup.
  8. SIMPLY PERFECT MARGARITA Sabor NOTE: Don't forget to add 0.5 oz of sugar syrup.
  9. PEG LEG WILLY'S PUNCH Captain Jack's Perfect Day at Coco Cay NOTE: This cocktail is not on the menu at Captain Jack's but it can be seen on signs at the bar. Has anyone seen this recently?
  10. BEACH TEA Captain Jack's Perfect Day at Coco Cay I've learned not to expect actual tea in bar menu items that say "Tea."
  11. BEACH BUM Captain Jack's Perfect Day at Coco Cay
  12. COCO CUVÉE Signature Cocktail Coco Beach Club NOTE: I could not find the Chandon Sweet Star (now Chandon Demi Sec) in my area so I just went with Asti (Spumante). This cocktail is served exclusively at the Coco Beach Club on Coco Cay. (... or is it?)
