Thread: Absolute at CN?

  1. #1

    Default Absolute at CN?

    Hello,
    We will be going to CN in a few weeks. This is our first time at a Couples resort, and we are really looking forward to it. I have been getting a lot of good information from this message board. Thanks.
    I would like to know if they serve Absolute Mandarin Vodka at CN? If not, what kind of vodka do they have? What about gin?

    Not sure about Absolute Mandarin Vodka, but in the piano bar they have Grey Goose, all other bars they have smirnoff and stoli's if I remember correctly.( I also believe they had an assortment of flavored vodkas)

    For Gin.. I saw Beefeater, Bombay Saphire and I think I saw Tanqueray.(I drink Bombay or Beefeater so not %100 sure about the Tanqueray)

    As I love a good "dirty Martini" I am very happy to find out they have good gin. As for Vodka my girlfriend will have to keep her fingers crossed and hope for Absolute or Absolute Mandarin.. but, that being said I am sure she would be quite content with Grey Goose!!! LOL!! Thanks for the info!!!

    We had a hard time finding Absolut or same quality vodka while there in 2008. There definitely was Grey Goose in the piano bar, but it was very low stock, and was gone very quickly. As a result, we were forced to drink Jamaican rum, and thank God for that!!! I used to be a vodka-only drinker until Jamaica. Hey, when in Rome, right?? TRY THE RUM!!!! It's yummy!!!

    While I may or may not spend a lot of time a the bar, I didn't write that down; the above was from a printed list I obtained. That's what I meant about "possible misspellings". There have always been frequent questions regarding the bar stock and I thought the list may help answer inquiries.
    Now, back to the bar .......

    Default Absolut Mandarin at CSA

    CSA has Absolut Mandarin in several bars. A new discovery was Absolut Raspberry in the Martini bar. Requested an Absolut Raspberry martini and it was "Absolut...ly" delightful. I made a few converts after they tried it.

    You fill out a slip of paper daily and list the items you want. The fantastic beverage manager Konrad is right on top of getting items that you may need.He says just ask for something and he will do his best to get it.

    There is a request sheet in your room where you can write down what you would like each day. You can also get champagne everywhere you go. No problem mon.
