The newly opened Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will feature a unique ingredient on its cocktail menu: camel milk. Sourced from local camels, the hotel has brought in a so-called Camel Milk Mixologist, Mohammad Daoud, to blend various non-alcoholic drinks with the protein-packed milk.

Daoud was inspired to make camel milk-infused drinks because of the upcoming Holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims will have to fast from sunrise to sunset. Since camel milk is high in protein and vitamins, Daoud saw it as the perfect satiating libation to have prior to the daily fast. For international customers, it provides a unique opportunity to partake in local cuisine that is not readily available elsewhere. Hasan Al Masri, the manager of the Ritz’s Arabic restaurant Mijana, where the camel milk menu will be available, said:

Camel milk has only recently been introduced to the main-stream consumer. Our guests, both regional and international, are always looking for new experiences and this would be an interesting and authentic opportunity for anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.
