Well, maybe just half a drink more…
We’re LOVING all the tasty Christmas-themed drinks being shaken and stirred in Disneyland! We’ve already tried the Holiday Egg Nog, Horchata Aqua Fresca, and the Cranberry Julep for the holiday season, and now we’re stopping by a Disney hotel for another round of sweet drinks!
Along with their festive decor, Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel is stepping away from the hot cocoa and mixing up three boozy Christmas beverages — Jungle All the Way, Peppermint Barks, and Gin-ger Snaps!
Jungle All the Way takes guests on a trip to the tropics with its Fernet Branca, Kahlua, lime juice, pineapple juice, and coconut cream combination.
Although this drink is supposed to be the fruitiest of the three, the Fernet Branca balances out the sweet pineapple and coconut flavors with its spiciness! It’s kinda similar in taste to a hot toddy, but with a lot stronger fruit flavors! It’s delicious AND has super pretty colors!
Ever wondered what an alcoholic candy cane tastes like? Peppermint Barks has got you covered with its mix of El Dorado 8-Year Rum, Rumple Minze Peppermint Schnapps, ginger syrup, lemon juice, Coco Real cream of coconut, and pomegranate juice (!!!), all topped with mint leaves and a candy cane garnish.
The Peppermint Barks definitely hits on that cool, refreshing taste that peppermint gives! The Peppermint Schnapps is definitely more prominent than the other flavors, but it’s not too strong. However, that pure cream of coconut makes the drink somewhat heavier, so you might want to take it slow while you’re sipping on this one!
Ginger snap cookies are low-key one of the best treats at Christmastime. And, the Gin-ger Snaps reminds us of those spicy treats with Hendrick’s Gin, Canton Ginger Liqueur, lemon juice, ginger syrup, and cinnamon syrup all shaken up together and topped with cinnamon and a candied ginger garnish.
When you think of the spice that comes with a ginger snap, try to think of that times ten in this drink! The spicy flavors of the ginger and the sweetness of the cinnamon mix together to make one AH-MAZING drink. Plus, that candied ginger adds a final kick of spice after you’ve finished sipping (and we love it)!
If we had to rank them, we’d say our ranking starts with the Gin-ger Snaps, Jungle All the Way, and finally the Peppermint Barks. But, don’t get us wrong!! We’d definitely think they’re all worth getting again.
