Make Your Own "Fun Ship" Cocktail

The cruise is over, it's time to unpack, and then you ponder ... what to do with the souvenir drink glasses and mugs you've brought home.

Re-creating the memories of the fun you had on board is important. Too important to use your special glass for just any beverage. A rum and Coke seems too mundane to drink from your "Fun Ship" glass. The souvenir faux-canning jar mug pictured here was served filled with a frosty margarita and salted rim and it's been refilled with homemade margaritas on many occasions since.

While a pina colada would also be appropriate for your sipping pleasure, why not try an authentic "Fun Ship®" Cocktail perfected by Carnival Cruise Lines' bartenders? With the recipe below you can mix up your own, with or without alcohol, for a refreshing summer cooler. Fill your souvenir glass and enjoy.
