Okay, Disniacs! In this segment of DIY Disney Drinkin’, a few of us here at Inside the Magic are trying to settle a debate and we want you, our audience, to help. We have each come up with our own Disney-inspired cocktail and it is up to you to decide which one is the best!
Each drink is extremely different from the other by way of its look, alcohol base, and composition. But they all come from the same love of Disney and creativity that we adult Disney fans are lucky to have and express.
Check them out, and read all the way to the bottom to see how YOU can have your own Disney-inspired drink featured on our DIY Disney Drinkin’ segment!
ITM Disney-Inspired Cocktails
“Experiment 6-2-6” by TJ Muscaro
Ingredients for 1 Serving
- 3oz Tequila
- 3oz Vodka
- 2oz Pineapple Juice
- 3oz Rum
- 3oz Gin
- Flush with Blue Curaçao
- Blitz in a blender
- Serve in a Daquiri glass with a pineapple garnish
This is a drink I’d imagine the true Experiment 626 would throw together. Putting a bottle in each of his four hands and just tossing liquor in almost haphazardly. This drink also emulates Stitch in that it may look all cute and cuddly when it is in fact a monster (12 oz of liquor!) that will knock you down and cause all kinds of unimaginable chaos. Handle with care.
“Snow White’s Poisonous Appletini” by Nathanial Eker
- One standard shot of vodka
- Two shots of sour Apple liqueur
- A dash of lemon juice
- Four shots of Cranberry juice
- Two shots of Tonic Water
- Sugar (for the rim)
- A slice of Apple for decoration
Feel like a Princess with this delicious Appletini. It might look blood red, but it’s one of the sweetest cocktails around; one for lovers of all things fruity and sweet!
“The Albert AWOL Wallop” by Lindsey Paris
- Guava Nectar
- Passion Fruit Juice
- Orange Juice
- Kraken Dark Rum
The Albert AWOL Wallop, inspired by the queue music of Walt Disney World’s Jungle Cruise, is a cocktail that will bring you back from radio silence. Albert’s POG juice combines equal parts of Guava Nectar, Passion Fruit Juice, and Orange Juice as a tropical base. Top the icy juice off with dark Kraken rum to ensure that the Skipper’s punny jokes take you under! Mix well before consuming.
“Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Woods” by Kristin Yep
- 2 Cups Frozen Peach
- 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
- 3 oz Whiskey
- 3 Tbsp Honey
- Blend peaches with 1.5oz Whiskey and 2 Tbsp Honey*.
- Blend strawberries with 1.5oz Whiskey and 1 Tbsp Honey*.
- Pour half of the peach at the bottom.
- Spoon your strawberry layer then peach.
- Sip and enjoy!
*Remember to be very careful not to upset the bees when collecting your honey. Perhaps, if you offer to make the bees a drink of their own, they won’t mind so much.
“The Untamed Beast” by Ryan Ogilvie
- 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup, plus more for drizzling
- 115 ml Baileys
- 115 ml chocolate liqueur
- 115 ml vanilla vodka
- 1 shot of espresso
- 1 chocolate bar
A classic chocolate martini with a bit of a kick. The chocolate martini represents the stature of a Prince and the addition of a shot of espresso shows the side of the Beast. Shave your favorite chocolate candy bar for the rim and have the rest on the side!
