We have now been on 3 cruises with Princess and have had many relaxing sea days and time to explore the ship! A sea day is a day that the ship is sailing from one location to the next. They’re a lot of fun and very relaxing! Usually, we hit the spa, the pizza bar, maybe a workout class, sleep in and our favorite thing to do is enjoy a cooler cocktail on the top deck with the best ocean views you can ever wish for! I thought it would be fun to share a Princess signature cocktail called The Ultimate Cooler. It has a really pretty sunset appearance and it’s very easy to make! The Ultimate Cooler is a great drink for those summer pool parties or warm weather gatherings. For the watermelon syrup you can use Monin which you can buy here and you can also buy passion fruit purée too! Enjoy and stay charming!

How To Make A Cooler Cocktail – Step By Step

  • Add vodka, watermelon syrup, and passion fruit purée in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 20 seconds.
  • Strain into a tall glass with ice and top off with cranberry juice.
  • Garnish with a lemon wedge.

What Is A Cooler Cocktail?

Cooler cocktails are perfectly sweet, refreshing and often have a lovely color to them. They are made for summer parties! Often made with less alcohol than other cocktails, they are light, crisp and very refreshing. Perfect for lounging on the deck, or sipping at a garden party!

A Cocktail that’s low in calories

At around 170 cals, this vodka cranberry cocktail is perfect for anyone who’s got an eye on the calories. It’s a simple cocktail with few ingredients, so it’s quick to make and low in calories – a great combination!

Some Great Vodkas To Try In Your Cooler Cocktail

Vodka is a great spirit for these cooler cocktails, it’s gives just enough kick and keeps the cocktail light. Here are some great vodkas to try:

  • Tito’s Vodka
  • Absolut Vodka
  • Grey Goose Vodka
  • Ketel One Vodka
  • Belvedere Vodka

Top Tips For Making A Cooler Cocktail

  • When blending the mix in a shaker, make sure you keep going until the shaker is ice cold, that way you know it’s all mixed.
  • Cooler cocktails are best made as your guests arrive.
  • It’s always great to garnish your cocktail, here I’ve used a simple slice of lemon.
