The perfect combination of mango and fruit flavors creates this delicious frozen Carnival Cruise Kiss on the Lips cocktail. If you have been on a Carnival Cruise, you know how delicious this drink is.
Kiss on the Lips Cocktail
Nothing tastes as good as a frosty beverage aboard a Carnival Cruise ship.
There is something about floating in the Caribbean and enjoying an ice-cold blended cocktail that just makes me smile a lot!
One of my favorite cocktails on Carnival Cruise Line ships is the Kiss on the Lips drink. HELLO YUM!
This cocktail is the perfect blend of fruity, yummy goodness that just hits the spot, and it seemed fun to share a few of our favorite beverages from our Carnival Cruise over the next few weeks.
I should admit here and now that I cheated on the photos. Okay, maybe we did not cheat, but the pic is of the drink we enjoyed on the Carnival Freedom.
I came home and worked on the recipe to share with everyone, but if I could take a pic with the Caribbean Sea in the background, it would set the scene better than my kitchen would.

We use mango margarita mix as a shortcut, but you can swap this ingredient with our Frozen Mango Margarita recipe if you want to go homemade.
You can also garnish this tropical cocktail with a pineapple slice, mango chunks, lime wheel, or a strawberry.
Vegetarian Option: This Carnival Cruise cocktail is naturally vegetarian.
Vegan Option: This drink should be vegan, but check each product label to confirm, as ingredients may vary across each component.
Gluten-Free: Kiss on the Lips should also be gluten-free, but check each product label to confirm, as ingredients may vary across each component.
Alcohol-Free Option: If you want to make this non-alcoholic version, you can skip the peach schnapps and use peach nectar juice.
Make It Spicy: Carnival Cruise does not make this cocktail spicy.
Larger Group/More Servings: For tropical parties, you can easily make a large pitcher of drinks. Just double or triple the recipe and serve in a cute pitcher. Keep the grenadine to the side and pour it into the hurricane glass before serving.
