Carnival Cruise Line's Miroslav Kljajic Wins 'Bartender Of The Year'

Posted March 15th, 2016

There's a new world-leading bartender on the Seven Seas. Miroslav (Miro) Kljajic, resident master mixologist with Carnival Cruise Line, recently took out 'Bartender of the Year' honours at the 2016 Bacardi Legacy Cruise Competition.

A resident bartender at Carnival's hugely popular Alchemy Bar, Miro won over the judges with his custom cocktail called 'Elixir Fizz'.

Elixir Fizz is comprised of Bacardi Carta Blanca rum, port, vanilla/thyme syrup, Prosecco and cherry bitters liqueur.

After bringing his cocktail-making skills to Carnival, Miro spent time in Australia where he helped launch Alchemy Bar on Carnival Spirit last year.

Alchemy is a focal drinking establishment on 11 Carnival ships, having most recently been added to Carnival Magic. It will also be opened on Carnival Vista, which will enter the cruising world with Europe holidays from 1 May.

This is the third time in five years that a Carnival-based bartender has taken home the award.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
