5 Drinks to Order at Our Tavern
Our tavern is the perfect place to sit, grab a drink, and enjoy a conversation with fellow passengers. Not sure what to order? You can ask our fantastic bartenders for the drink of the day, which changes daily. We also have a great variety of wines and beers onboard. Here are some drinks to order at our bar.
#1- Old Fashioned
If you like bourbon and/or whiskey but are looking for something different, this is a good option. Apparently, this drink was invented in 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky and eventually the recipe was brought to New York City. Today, this is one of the most popular drinks in the city and for whiskey and bourbon drinkers.
Served in a V-shaped glass, a martini is a classic drink at every bar. Some people choose between vodka and gin, but the original martini contains gin and dry vermouth and is served extremely cold with a green olive or lemon garnish.
#3- Old Cuban
This cocktail was created in NYC by Audrey Saunders, a bartender from Pegu Club. This drink, influenced by the classic mojito, consists of aged rum, sugar, lime juice, mint bitters, and champagne. It is refreshing and delicious.
#4- Cuba Libre
As simple as it is, this cocktail is one of the most popular drinks all over the world. The creation of this drink originates in 1900 in Cuba during the American occupation of the island. According to reports, the first Cuba Libre was ordered by an American while celebrating Cuba’s independence from Spain during the Spanish-American war.
A little bit of tequila is always good, which is why you should order a tasty margarita. The invention of the margarita is credited to Pancho Morales, a bartender in Juarez, Mexico. Apparently, Morales was asked for a drink that he didn’t know and that’s how the margarita was born.
Order these drinks at our Taverns on Victory I and Victory II. Cheers! For more information visit www.victorycruiselines.com or give us a call at 1-888 -907-2636.
