Four Carnival Spirit DIY cocktails

Back from your cruise and missing those Happy Hour cocktails? We know the feeling…
So Carnival Australia has assembled four brand new recipes from its upcoming Alchemy Bar, which will be launched on the Carnival Spirit in August.
The Alchemy Bar is part of Carnival Australia’s $44 million upgrade on the Spirit which will also include changes to food and entertainment.
These delicious concoctions were created by Eddie Allen, one of America’s top mixologists from Tower Night Club in Las Vegas.
