Alchemy Bar The Perfect Storm Cocktail Recipe
If you read our post about the Restorative Basil Drop Cocktail you saw that we are trying to push ourselves and try new Alchemy Bar Cocktails.
We always spend time at the Alchemy Bar when cruising with Carnival but I fell into a rut. I was only ordering my favorite drinks which are delicious but I realized there was an entire Alchemy Bar Menu that I hadn't tried.
The Perfect Storm was a cocktail I kept hearing people order but had never tried. For some reason, I thought it was going to be similar to a Dark and Stormy or a less fruity drink. When I finally slowed down and read the ingredients I realized I had missed a killer strawberry rum cocktail.
There have been some questions about Carnival Alchemy Bar Prices. During our cruise on the Carnival Panorama in February 2020 all of the Alchemy Bar cocktails were $10.95 a drink.
Alchemy Bar drinks are included in the Carnival Cheers package which is great! We are excited to try the Carnival Cheers Drink Package on our next cruise.
If you want to add a bit of fun to this cocktail you can light rosemary on fire and place it in the glass to get the smoky flavor (check the video above to see how it is done). You can also sprinkle cinnamon over the drink.
For a fancy party trick sprinkle cinnamon over a lighter and watch it sparkle and flare. Please make sure if you are going to use fire with your drink that you are safe!!!

Stemless martini glass – You can also serve the Perfect Storm in a rocks glass or double the recipe and serve it in a larger glass. This recipe could easily be made larger to serve in a pitcher for parties. Just slide the serving number up on the recipe card below to change to how many servings you would like to make.
