Wine-Based Liquor Alternatives: How to Bypass the ‘Wine Only’ Rule on Cruises

Ahoy, cocktail lovers! If you’re ready to sail the high seas and indulge in some wine-based cocktails on your next cruise, we have some exciting news for you. While most cruise lines have a limit on how much alcohol you can bring on board, wine-based liquors are generally allowed on most cruises, as long as they comply with the cruise line’s alcohol policy.

Wine-based cocktails are a great alternative because they have a lower alcohol content than those made with spirits like vodka or whiskey. Let’s dive into some of the fantastic Premium Blend wine-based products you can bring with you and enjoy on board:

  • Premium Blend’s Agave wine, imported from Jalisco, Mexico, has become a favorite among people in the industry due to its premium quality and smooth flavor. For the ones who are new to this traditional Mexican drink, Agave wine is a unique and delicious alcoholic beverage that is made from the sap of the Agave plant. While it is similar to Tequila in some ways, Agave wine has its own distinct flavor and production process. Prepare your favorite tequila-based cocktails with Premium Blend’s award-winning Agave wines: El Guitarrón Classic, El Guitarrón Especial and El Guitarrón Cristalino
  • Looking for something citrusy and refreshing? The Le’ Cello Lemon Specialty is a perfect choice! This zesty lemon-flavored cocktail is traditionally served chilled or as an after-dinner apéritif.
  • How about adding a fruity twist to your wine game? Premium Blend has created a unique line of Asian-inspired ready-to-drink cocktails. Zaketini Lychee is a flavored wine that is infused with the essence of the lychee fruit, and the Zaketini Fuji apple is sweet and fruity made from the flavors of Fuji apples. These are delicious and unique options for those who enjoy fruit wines.
  • If you’re feeling adventurous and ready to sip on a little slice of Italy, try the Spritz & Roll cocktail. A spritz is a Venetian wine-based cocktail, commonly served as an aperitif in Northeast Italy.

Whether you’re sailing the high seas or dreaming of your next vacation, these wine-based products are a fun and delicious way to enjoy your drinks in a new and exciting way. Just make sure to follow your cruise line’s alcohol policy, and you’re good to go! Cheers to a great cruise!
