Friends of the Food Blog, I need your guidance. My favorite alcoholic drink in Disney World is being phased out, and I need a replacement. Stat.
Born at 8 Trax Dance Club in the now-defunct Pleasure Island, the Leisure Suit was everything delicious all in one glass:
Now, a combination of 8 Trax closing and the “standard” drink menu being ushered into all Disney restaurants and bars a few years ago has meant that my beloved Leisure Suit is fading fast.
Luckily, as you see above, some of the more experienced Disney bartenders (this one’s from Petal’s Pool Bar at Pop Century) do remember the drink and can find the recipe in the hard-copy rolodex behind the bar. But I can’t always rely on the kindness of strangers…and I’m getting tired of explaining the long list of ingredients
So it’s become clear that I’m going to have to find a new favorite drink in Disney World — preferably one that’s still readily available somewhere — and I’m coming to you guys for suggestions.
What’s your favorite? It can be from anywhere: World Showcase, your favorite Resort restaurant, a Pool Bar, a theme park Restaurant…anywhere! Let me know via email, facebook, or twitter! Hopefully I’ll get enough suggestions that I can post a “top three” list next week!
Thanks in advance!
