New, Innovative Signature Cocktails To Debut On Seven Seas Splendor
Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced an impressive collection of 19 new signature cocktails and eight new gins that will be offered exclusively on Seven Seas Splendor™ when the cruise ship that defines luxury perfected debuts in February 2020.
“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.
VIRGO 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.
