Recipe for the ‘Colette’ Champagne Cocktail at Disney Cruise Line’s Remy

Anyone can cook … or in this case, mix!  

For this installment of #DisneyMagicMoments, we’re excited to spotlight one of my favorite places aboard our Disney Cruise Line ships: Remy, the French-inspired fine dining restaurant on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. We’ll take a quick look at some of the exquisite design details that make this location so unique and also share the recipe for one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails.

As you might have guessed, Remy is named after the tiny chef with a passion for cooking in the 2007 Disney•Pixar film “Ratatouille.” Evoking the romance of Paris, the City of Lights, this restaurant offers the most luxurious dining experience aboard our Disney Cruise Line  ships. The elegant dining room is softly lit and designed in a timeless Art Nouveau style with tasteful nods to the film, including artful appearances of Remy. Some of my favorite details are featured in the images below!

But of course, there is the main event – the cuisine. Guests will dine on fine French fare from an ever-changing menu brought to you by the culinary talents of two prestigious chefs,  Scott Hunnel and Arnaud Lallement, who are both internationally recognized for their outstanding creations.  

And these delectable masterpieces are accompanied by an array of fine wines and libations. Which leads me to the “Colette” Cocktail, a beverage inspired by chef Colette from “Ratatouille.” At Remy, this signature cocktail is handcrafted tableside, expertly combining champagne and vodka and garnished with three Cassis pearls and dried pineapple cubes. And now you can impress your friends and family by making it at home! See the recipe details below:

Disney Cruise Line Takes #1 Spots in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line Rankings for the Seventh Year in a Row

bdcl1

For the seventh year in a row, Disney Cruise Line has earned number one spots in the Best Cruise Lines for Families and Best Cruise Lines in the Caribbean categories of the U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line rankings.

These annual rankings celebrate the very best of the best and recognize how our fantastic teams continue to outdo themselves each and every year. In the words of our Disney Cruise Line President Jeff Vahle, “The energy and enthusiasm our Crew Members bring to their roles is the driving force behind why Disney is such a trusted name in cruising.”

U.S. News & World Report rates more than 150 cruise ships based on an analysis of expert and user opinions that factor in traveler type, overall cruise ship quality, reputation in the industry, types of itineraries, approval ratings and more.

There is so much passion and planning that goes into creating the perfect ocean-going vacation for each member of the family, but what is the best thing about a Disney cruise for you? Is it seeing the Broadway-style shows in the Walt Disney Theater or splashing along our amazing “water coaster” at sea? For me, it’s watching the waves roll in from the comfort of a swaying hammock at our island paradise, Disney Castaway Cay. And, I will never miss an opportunity (and you shouldn’t either) to indulge in a delicious brunch at Palo, our chic adult-exclusive restaurant.

Hope to see you around the ship real soon!

Since we first set sail in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has delivered incredible family vacation experiences that combine the magic of Disney with the wonder of exploring different parts of the world. From Broadway-style productions inspired by classic Disney tales and dedicated spaces for kids and adults to signature dining and spa experiences, Disney Cruise Line offers something for every member in your family. For a full list of this year’s U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line rankings, visit U.S. News 2020 Best Cruises Guides.
