Um…this is why I love Pinterest. I recently came upon these incredible Disney-themed cocktails by Cody’s Cocktails, and they’re truly incredible! For each Disney hero, Cody’s included a drink for their corresponding villain. I LOVE the Maleficent one! Check it out below!
Cody has promised to share recipes on his facebook page, so be sure to keep checking back for those! And if you take a shot at making some of these yourself, post a pic on social media and hashtag #cocktailsbycody! (You can @ us, too — we’d love to see!)
The descriptions below are from Cody himself, so you can see what his thought process was as he developed the drinks. So cool!
Cinderella’s classic blue gown is captured into this creamy, light, blueberry based drink.
To mirror Cinderella comes the evil Step Mother. A drink that’s a vile deep red, bitter pomegranate flavoring, with a sweet chocolate finish. Perfect for this malicious villain.
Aurora’s drink is a light, sweet, tropical flavored martini in a layered form of pink to blue — to portray the fight over her gowns coloring.
Hands down my most precious drink that I’ve crafted to date. It’s the mistress of evil herself, Maleficent. The layering in this drink makes it look like an oil spill, and nothing short of vile. It is a mixture of tart, bitter, and sour that is a wonderful combination, while still having a strong vodka based backbone.
In a tropical three-tiered frozen beverage, I give you Ariel. Each layer has a different flavor type going on, and when combined make a great islander drink. All topped with Swedish Fish. [ And for people asking why I layered it like this, the blue is the ocean, and she wants out, so her tail and hair colors are “out” of the water. Just play along. Okay?]
The evil of the deep, Ursala. In a unique, refreshing combo of Grape and coconut rum, the ‘Sea Witch’ is born. A real fun drink to come up with.
I wanted to push these Disney Characters in all directions, and opted to go the Bomb Shot route with dear Snow White. This was VERYYYYYY HARD to layer to make it even look this good. I had to pour this out several times…. But anyway! The base drink is pineapple juice and a splash of Sprite at the bottom, and blue curacao layered on top.
As much as I wanted to make Dopey, the liquor was just not working with me, so Grumpy took his place. The Orange & grenadine work perfectly with the base drink. With that said the cream is ENTIRELY OPTIONAL. I did it to tie in more Disney then just a red shot.
And I always thought the Evil Queen was boring, so I made a double shot to be the cursed Apple. Measurements are pretty easy to figure out by looking at this. Equal all on the Apple, double cran.
I interpreted Belle into a mellow yellow banana split martini. It’s smooth, sweet, and light. Makes for the perfect dessert drink.
The macho villain himself, Gaston. More of a drink for the boys, a whiskey based cocktail, with rich black cherry, and smooth nutty amaretto finish.
Jafar is a sleek, tall, toxic drink. Along with one of my favorite liquors ever, Myers Rum, it makes for a very potent drink with the pineapple and grenadine cover. All topped with a orange peel cut into a cobra. (kind of)
Opposite Jafar, Jasmine’s drink is white rum based, and a much more exotic light mix. The main hassle with this drink is mixing it so the color lands. All topped with gold sprinkles, and laying at the bottom.
I’m sure Cody will be developing more of these! Check out the originals — and hopefully recipes soon — at Cocktails by Cody!
(Nope — I wasn’t compensated in any way for this post! I just think these are awesome! Enjoy!)
