While there’s still no official word on exactly when this Spring we’ll be able to belly up to that bar, we do have a few more details about some of the drinks they’ll be featuring!

We’re hearing that beverages will be “hand crafted”, so we’re expecting delicious fresh flavors with a tropical twist! We can’t wait to get our hands on the Castaway Crush. And it won’t be long before we can indulge in a Polynesian Pearl, a Tahitian Torch, or a Nautilus. But personally, the first drink I’ll be enjoying here is the Dark & Tropical Stormy!

I'll Have Whatever She's Making, Please!

Could That Be a Polynesian Pearl??

In addition to a whole bevy of new drinks, Trader Sam will also bring a couple of tried and true favorites from his Enchanted Tiki Bar at Disneyland to the Grog Grotto. The menu will include the Shrunken Zombie Head, Uh-Oa!, and Krakatoa Punch, in addition to others. We’re still awaiting word on whether we’ll be able to get a Kungaloosh! Surely, we will, right! :-D (Check out our review of Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar here!)

Uh Oa!

Uh Oa!!!

And if you don’t indulge in alcoholic beverages, no worries — there are some great non-alcoholic options as well! We’ll look forward to telling you all about Skipper Sipper and Schweitzer Falls, and trying the Polynesian Punch, which will be served in a souvenir sipper. Will it look like any of these featured in a post we did a while back, we wonder?

    A non-alcoholic drink for me LOL! Oh well, I can have a blast of fun without the alcohol. They all sound very interesting and delicious.

    A “Grog Grotto?” Don’t they mean a “Grogtto?”
    uh… I’ll just see myself out now…

    I was just in Disneyland for the first time last month, and my favorite thing about Trader Sam’s was two cast members – a Hawaiian father and son who played guitar and ukulele and played beautiful Polynesian music! The drinks were lovely, but I really hope to find equally talented and charming entertainment at this new establishment.
