Best Margaritas for Your Next Cruise
Just because you can't bring your trusty frozen concoction maker on the cruise with you doesn't mean you can't enjoy this classic tropical cocktail while you're on vacation. Here are a few of the margarita varieties that go best with a cruise vacation.
The Classic Margarita
When is your standard margarita ever a bad idea? Made with tequila, lime, salt, sugar and citrus liqueur, a margarita is the perfect thing to grab on day one as you're leaving port or day three in the middle of the ocean - there's no wrong time to enjoy this drink.
Each bar can have its own take on the margarita depending on the bartender's specific skills and the ingredients he's partial to. However, more and more bars are coming out with spicy varieties of margaritas. Why not inject something a little spicier into the equation while relaxing on the cruise deck? Look for jalapeno, chipotle, sriracha or cayenne margaritas that'll give you a truly different drink to enjoy.
Depending on the location of your cruise, you may have some unique fruits at your disposal. Try a margarita that uses these fruits to perfection for juice, puree and even garnish. Order something a little different and out of your comfort zone, like blood orange or lychee. You'll be glad you did.
A Dessert Margarita
Fine dining and large meals are a big part of the cruise experience, so why not work your cocktails so why not go big with your cocktails, too as well? After dinner, seek out the tastiest dessert margarita after dinner, whether it's built around chocolate, graham cracker, whipped cream or another tasty confection.
