Hornblower Signature Cocktails


It’s nice being able to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink–with or without alcohol–but it’s even better to do so on a boat overlooking the water in the fresh air.

Hornblower features delicious signature cocktails on our various brunch and dinner cruises in San Francisco, Marina Del Rey, Newport Beach, and San Diego. Below are recipes for a signature cocktail in each region. Try making them at home or better yet, enjoy them with us on an upcoming cruise!

 Hornblower Bay Bubbles
The Hornblower San Franciso “Bay Bubbles”

Chill a martini glass by placing ice cubes and filling with water.

In cocktail shaker, add 1-1/2 oz of Belvedere vodka, 1/2-oz. of Grand Marnier liqueur, and 1/2-oz. of pomegranate juice. Shake vigorously in one hand and toss out ice water in the martini glass with the other hand. Strain contents from the shaker into the chilled glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
