by , Dining and Beverage Standards and Consistency Manager, Disney Cruise Line

If you’re looking for a festive signature cocktail to serve at your holiday party, our Poinse-tini is the perfect choice! Offered during our Very Merrytime Cruises, along with the Christmas Cookie cocktail I shared last week, the sweetness of this easy-to-make concoction makes it a favorite among many. Give it a taste this weekend, and let me know in the comments what you think!


  • 2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz cinnamon syrup
  • Black cherry syrup
  • Bitters
  • Sugar
  1. Shake and strain gin, Chambord, fresh lemon juice and cinnamon syrup.
  2. Moisten the rim of a martini glass and dip it in sugar.
  3. Layer bottom of martini glass with black cherry syrup.
  4. Pour drink into martini glass and top with a dash of bitters.


  • I’ve never seen black cherry syrup for sale. Is it the Monin kind or is it like the syrup that would be with preserved black cherries?

  • We were on one of the Merry Time cruises … had no idea this was available. What are the chances of posting information such as this (and special events) IN ADVANCE of the cruise, go guests know what to expect. Guests did not receive any advance information on the Halloween on the High Seas OR the MerryTime cruises – until after the cruises took place.
