The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, is now serving camel milk milkshakes.


The newly opened Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal has an in-house “Camel Milk Mixologist” and offering up various flavored milk shakes — strawberry, mint and others — to guests.

Mohammad Daoud, the Camel Milk Mixologist, has this to offer: “I wanted to create something special for the upcoming Holy Month of Ramadan…Because camel milk has a high level of protein and additional nutrients, it’s an excellent beverage to consume during Sohour, the meal taken prior to sunrise for Muslims fasting during Ramadan.” Can’t argue with that.

Camel milk is having a moment in UAE and gaining more mainstream commercial recognition: the first mass-produced ice cream made from camel milk went on sale in USA in May, and prior to that work began on building a camel milk chocolate factory.

So trust Ritz to always be on top of local authentic trends. The Mixologist will be on-hand to “make recommendations on which camel milk flavours to pair with various dishes and can create a unique blend based on the guests’ tastes, saving their preferences for their next visit,” the hotel says.
