Today is National Martini Day (and #MartiniMonday) and to celebrate Carnival Cruise Line has created a special limited edition cocktail called the Mermaid Martini.
The colorful one-of-a-kind martini will be offered at select bars across the fleet, including the unique cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bars on select ships. The cost is $9.25
The vibrant multicolored libation was created by Carnival’s award-winning mixologist Miroslav Kljajic, the winner of the 2016 Bacardí Legacy Cruise Bartender of the Year competition.
Here’s the recipe for the Mermaid Martini for those who wish to recreate this delicious cocktail at home:
1.5oz Bacardi Mango
0.25 oz Monin Coconut syrup
0.5oz Blue Curacao
1oz Fresh lemon juice
0.5oz Pineapple juice
Combine all ingredients and strain into a martini glass
The Mermaid Martini is just one of several varieties of hand-crafted martinis available across the fleet which include such favorites as the Revved Up Mojito Martini and Spicy Chipotle Pineapple Martini served at all Alchemy Bars.
