Regent Seven Seas Cruises has launched an impressive collection of 19 new signature cocktails and eight new gins that will be offered exclusively on Seven Seas Splendor when the ship debuts in February.
“We’ve crafted the most ambitious cocktail menu for Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season to highlight premium spirits, fresh ingredients, bitters, purees, reductions and more to help guests celebrate and toast Regent’s newest ship,” said Bernhard Klotz, vice-president of Food and Beverage for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Our guests tell us they are already very satisfied with our current premium cocktail and gin offerings, but Seven Seas Splendor represents perfected luxury, inspiring us to elevate our beverage collection to even higher levels of excellence as part of our all-inclusive offerings.”
Uniquely crafted with fresh fruits, natural spices and garden-grown herbs, the cocktails are served with appealing garnishes in modern-designed glassware. They are prepared with Fever-Tree premium tonic drink mixers and are Gin-, Vodka-, Whisky-, Rum-, Cognac-, Tequila- and Mezcal-based.
Examples include: VIRGO (pictured). Monkey Shoulder, Chili and Pineapple Reduction, Cinnamon Bitters, served in a Fizz Rock Glass. Virgo delivers just the right balance of sweet and spicy with a chili and pineapple reduction mixed with cinnamon bitters, orange zest, vanilla, spice and the floral notes of the smooth Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whiskey.
BON SOIREE. Woodford Reserve, Chambord, Citrus Bitters, served in a Coupe Glass. Bon Soiree delivers a citric note with an intense touch of a raspberry liqueur and all the smoothness and warmth expected from a small-batch Kentucky straight bourbon.
UNLUCKY IRISH. Irish Gunpowder, Fresh Lemon Juice, Basil, Black Peppercorns, Indian Tonic.
Nearly all signature cocktails and gins are included in the voyage price and will also be offered aboard Seven Seas Explorer in mid-year 2020.
