This Sunday is the “big game” and the master mixologists at Carnival Cruise Lines have created two refreshing custom cocktails for guests to enjoy while checking out all the exciting gridiron action aboard the “Fun Ships.”

The hand-crafted libations – The Blue Blitz and The Green Machine – are inspired by the two squads competing for the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy this weekend.

Those who want to create these beverages at home for their own big game watch parties can follow these easy step-by-step instructions:


Blue Blitz


1.25 ounces Sauza Tequila

.75 ounces Blue Curacao

1.75 ounces lemonade

1.75 ounces simple syrup

Directions:  Pour all ingredients in a blender, add one large scoop of ice and blend until smooth.  Pour into daiquiri glass and garnish with a lime and a cherry.


Green Machine

Green Machine


1.25 ounces Skyy vodka

1 ounce Midori melon liqueur

2 ounces pineapple juice

.5 ounces pina colada mix

.25 ounces lemonade

Directions:  Place ice in a shaker, pour in all ingredients, shake vigorously and pour into daiquiri glass.  Garnish with pineapple slice, cherry and mini-parasol.

In addition to these two delicious custom-designed concoctions, “Fun Ship” guests can enjoy discounts on buckets of beer while enjoying the game on the massive poolside LED screens or in the line’s festive sports bars throughout the fleet.

Enjoy the game!
