Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and Disney restaurants on both coasts are preparing to offer guests some festive and delicious opportunities to celebrate the holiday.
The Diablo Burger is an explosion of Latin flavor, featuring a 10 oz blend of sirloin, short rib, and brisket topped with a fried egg, salsa, Cotija cheese, and jalapeños for an extra kick.
The Flor de Maravilla is the perfect companion for this juicy burger, guaranteed to spice up your day. This drink takes a well-aged tequila and couples it with southwestern flavors of spice to capture the spirit of the Mexican heritage of colors as we enter the true Cinco de Mayo state of mind. Its made with Meastro Dobel Resposado Tequila, Ancho Reyes Ancho Chili Liquor, Maestro Dobel Humito, Solerno Blood Orange, Campari, Passion Fruit Cordial, Blood Orange Juice and served in a rocks glass with a strawberry garnish and a cocoa chili rubbed rim.
A burger and an ice-cold beer is a tried and true recipe for success. Combining the brewery’s super soft water and the finest German hops, this unfiltered keller pilsner is crushable. Brewed as a traditional European continental pilsner, this is what beer tastes like pouring from the wooden vats used to make lager beer for centuries in the Czech Republic town of Plzeň.
