Alchemy Bar Drink Recipes
The Alchemy Bar is one of our favorite places on a Carnival Cruise. There is just something so fun about watching these master mixologists create amazing cocktails.
I love that you can order off the Alchemy Bar Menu or ask the bartender to create a custom cocktail based on your favorite flavors.
Alchemist' Sidecar is a delicious cocktail with Hennessy Black Cognac, Patron Citronage Orange Liqueur, Lime Juice, and Simple Syrup. This classic cocktail tastes amazing and it easy to make.
The Caribbean Manhattan is sadly not on the current Alchemy Bar menu which means you definitely need to enjoy it at home. It is the perfect combination of Makers Mark Bourbon and Spiced Brown Sugar Syrup with a few other ingredients.
The Cucumber Sunrise is the most popular drink at the Alchemy Bar. It is the perfect refreshing combination of Vodka, watermelon, muddled cucumber, and lime. This drink tastes amazing on a hot day or really any day.
Garnish with a cucumber wheel

The Perfect Storm is a great combination of strawberry and rum flavors. Don't let the name fool you this drink is the perfect drink!
Carnival Cruise Pool/Tropical Cocktails
When you think of a cruise vacation do you think about lounging by the pool and soaking in all the sunshine? I know I do!
There is just something so perfect about sipping on a fruity cocktail while soaking in as much warm weather as you can. I love all of the ports you can visit on a cruise but I also really like sea days. I used to dread them when we first started cruising but now I try to find cruises with multiple sea days.
Spending the day with no agenda other than relaxing and enjoying great drinks and food is just perfect!

Pig and Anchor Cocktails
Guy Fieri's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse/Brewhouse can be found on the Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama and soon on the Carnival Mardi Gras. The restaurant/brewery includes a great Flavortown Bar that has its own cocktail and drink menu.
You can enjoy microbrews that are brewed right on board within the brewhouse. If you are on a Carnival Cruise Ship that does not have the brewery on board don't worry you can now enjoy ParchedPig® West Coast IPA and ParchedPig® Toasted Amber Ale across the Carnival fleet in cans!
