Shake it Up Onboard Holland America With the New Mixology Menu by “King Cocktail”

A luxury cruise is no place for mediocre martinis, Mai Tais and margaritas. To boost its bar program, Holland America has partnered with 2015 James Beard Who's Who Inductee and Master Mixologist Dale DeGroff to reinvent their cocktail menu. DeGroff's original recipes and finessed takes on the classics will debut aboard ms Eurodam this month and will expand fleet-wide to all 13 Holland America passenger ships by spring 2016.

There’s nobody better behind the bar than DeGroff (a.k.a. King Cocktail), a 30-year veteran of New York’s Rainbow Room, founding president of The Museum of the American Cocktail. He’s also the bestselling author of two cocktail books: The Essential Cocktail and The Craft of the Cocktail, and produces the Dale DeGroff's Aromatic Bitters brand, developed with absinthe distiller Ted Breaux.
