Dale DeGroff updates Holland America Line cocktails
Legendary bartender Dale DeGroff has curated a new menu of cocktails to be served in bars on board cruise ships operated by Holland America Line.
The menu of seven cocktails has been created to showcase the “craft” cocktail movement and features twists on classics and new creations.
Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line, said: “Dale and our beverage team have put together an exceptional new craft cocktail menu that is an expressive collection of drinks created by some of the foremost experts in the craft cocktail world.
“We’re continuously working with Dale to evolve our cocktail menus to be on the cutting edge of what’s trending and what’s going to resonate with our guests.”
Cocktails created by DeGroff include the Foggy Boulevardier, which is a twist on a Boulevardier made with a wine-based cherry liqueur from Italy; and the Alliance, which was originally created for the Trade Board of Peru and is made using pisco.
The menu also features cocktails developed by renowned bartenders including Joaquin Simó of New York’s Death & Co, Australian bartender Sam Ross and Milk & Honey’s Enzo Enrico.
In addition to the new craft cocktail menu, DeGroff’s signature cocktails are available in other bars on board Holland America Line ships, including the Ocean Bar, the Explorer’s Lounge, the Crow’s Nest and Tamarind Bar. The signature cocktail menu includes the Gallery Gimlet, Hemingway Daiquiri, Yuzu Margarita and The Ritz Cocktail.
