in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs is an Indiana Jones-inspired bar where creatively-applied movie references are part of everything they do. From our first visit, we loved the cool space and the funky menu.
And Jock’s not just in it for the clever names. Come the holiday season, they’re also in it for the seasonal drinks! During Halloween we loved the spooky drinks and the Poison Apple Glow Cubes that came with them. And for the Christmas season, Jock Lindsey’s offering two holiday libations.
Jock Frost and Jock’s Holiday Nog both pay homage to the winter season, but they couldn’t be more different, really. Jock Frost is icy blue with a wheel of lemon. Jock’s Holiday Nog is creamy white with floating peppermint candies.
Some of Jock’s drinks come in elaborate souvenir cups, but these are served more simply than that.
Jock’s Holiday Nog celebrates the season with a combination of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Frangelico Liqueur, Rumchata Caribbean Rum, and Vanilla. The creamy drink isn’t overly sweet, but the vanilla makes it go down easily. And while you might not be hit with the alcohol right off, it’ll definitely hit you after.
Jock Frost is a wintery drink in name and appearance only (minus that lemon garnish); otherwise it’s wondefully fruity. Jock Frost is a combination of Malibu Rum, Rumchata, Blue Curacao liqueur and Pineapple Juice, making this more at home on the beach than the slopes. But that’s okay with us!
I enjoyed two appetizers along with my drinks: Incan Tuna Tacos and Nang Tao Spicy Popcorn Chicken.
The Nang Tao Spicy Popcorn Chicken lived up to its moniker (plus how ’bout that popcorn holding up the skewers? It’s also tossed with the spices!). The chicken nuggets were tangy and slightly spicy due to the spicy Togarashi Seasoning and Korean Pepper Sauce.
These are essentially spicy chicken nuggets — definitely bigger than typical popcorn chicken. And if you’re looking for a tasty counterpart to the sweet and creamy drinks, these are a great fit!
For something a little lighter, take a look at Incan Tuna Tacos! This trio of tacos features Seared Ahi Tuna with Ancient Spices, Lettuce, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Pico de Gallo, Cilantro, Jalapeno Pepper, and Toasted Lime in a Flour Tortilla. These were flavorful owing to the ‘ancient spices’, and the toasted lime in a squeezer means you can add lots of acid to the layers of flavor already in the tacos.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is such a fun and clever spot to hang out in Disney Springs. Whether you’re fueling your shopping or eating your way through the Springs, a stop at Jock Lindsey’s is worth it. Don’t forget to sit in the diving bell!
