If you know us, then you know that we love a yummy cocktail — especially when it comes from or is inspired by the Disney Parks!
We’re ready to cool off from a long day with a delish homemade Disney cocktail and the perfect Disney movie to pair alongside it. We have compiled the perfect list of DFB cocktail recipes and movies to watch while you sip away!
1. Avocado Margarita with The Three Caballeros
We’re starting off with one of our favorite cocktails to grace the bars of Disney World. It’s the Avocado Margarita from La Cava del Tequila in Epcot! You might also know this tasty beverage as the Aquacate. We think this TOTALLY delish drink would pair perfectly with a viewing of The Three Caballeros!
This cocktail is a yummy blend of avocado, tequila, melon liquor, lime, and agave. Not only do both the movie and the drink celebrate Latin American culture, but they’re both pretty colorful and bright too! On top of that, the sour notes in the marg pair perfectly with the silliness of the movie! 😉
2. Enchanted Tiki Drink with Moana
Take a trip to the Polynesian islands by streaming Moana and whipping up an Enchanted Tiki Drink! This combo of spiced rum, pineapple juice, grenadine, and cream of coconut makes for the perfect mix of island flavors.
Both this drink and this film are super sweet. Plus, just like the blend of flavors in the drink, Moana learned to blend what she loved (the islands AND the sea) about her home by the end of the movie. See, this drink is symbolic!
3. Konk Kooler with The Little Mermaid
For our next cocktail, we’re pulling inspo from Disney Cruise Line’s Castaway Cay, where they serve up a yummy mix of dark rum, light rum, passion fruit juice, pina colada mix, and orange juice called the Konk Kooler! We’re pairing this guy with The Little Mermaid because just like Ariel, we want to be somewhere we’re not — and that somewhere for us is Castaway Cay! “I want to be where the Konk Coolers are…”
We don’t need to make a deal with a sea witch to have this tropical drink at home thanks to the DFB recipe that we’re blending up! Trust us, once you’re hanging on the couch with a cool glass of Konk Kooler watching Sebastian sing his little crab heart out, you’ll feel like “life is the bubbles!”
4. Elderflower Cocktail with Ratatouille
For a classy evening, we recommend one of THREE Elderflower Cocktails paired with a viewing of Ratatouille. These cocktails are all made with St. Germain liqueur which is a popular addition to finer drinks around Disney World. And who better to give us classy cuisine than our favorite little chef, Remy!?
Plus, the liqueur is French, just like the movie! AND, it’s made from elderflowers — so these cocktails could even impress Anton Ego.
5. Triple Yeti Blast with Monsters Inc.
Next up get ready to whip up the Triple Yeti Blast! This Animal Kingdom cocktail actually reminds us of a famous character in Monsters Inc. — the Adorable Snowman. Not only is the Snowman a yeti, but he also makes snow cones! We’re not gonna lie, this drink definitely looks a little bit like colorful snow.
This drink is actually a layered combo of three different margaritas, so get ready for it to pack a punch! You’ll have a monstrously good time watching Sully and Mike’s friendship as you sip on this drink!
6. Monorail Drinks with Meet the Robinsons
For the next pairing, you can DIY one of three different Monorail Drinks from California Grill in the Contemporary Resort! These drinks were inspired by the red, pink, and yellow monorails and made for some pretty darn tasty blended cocktails! We’re pairing them with Meet the Robinsons!
The Monorail is an iconic feature of Walt Disney World resort AND a pretty awesome symbol of the “Tomorrow” Walt dreamed about. This movie is also a testament to Walt’s tomorrow and vision. So, sip on a trio of cocktails celebrating the monorail while you learn how to “Keep moving forward.” And, maybe toast to Walt, too.
7. Christmas Cookie Cocktail with Noelle
We’re pairing the Christmas Cookie Cocktail with Noelle on Disney+. Just because it’s not the holiday season doesn’t mean we can’t have a little celebration to bring tidings of joy! This cocktail is made with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua, peppermint schnapps, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and cookie shavings. YUM.
Noelle and this drink both celebrate the holidays and leave us with smiles on our faces!
8. Bella Notte Sangria with Lady and the Tramp
Next time you’re having a beautiful night (or bella notte), whip up the Bella Notte Sangria and play Lady and the Tramp. This is a super tasty drink with a blend of juices, chianti, and triple sec!
This fruity drink is a sweet alternative to any ole glass of wine and can definitely create a romantic atmosphere. Hey, you could even try to make an evening out of it and whip up some spaghetti, too!
9. Tiger Lily Sangria with Peter Pan
That’s not the only sangria we have on the list for yah. Try pairing the DELISH Tiger Lily Sangria with a viewing of Peter Pan — what a classic! This Sangria is as gorgeous as Tiger Lily herself and about as spunky too!
With the floral AND fruity flavors of chardonnay, elderflower liqueur, orange liqueur, guava, and mango, you’ll be transported right to Neverland. When you’re sipping on this, you might disagree with Peter. Sometimes it’s good to grow up!
10. Winter Wonderland Spiked Mocha with Frozen
It doesn’t have to be cold outside to have a tasty winter cocktail. Be like Elsa and make it winter TODAY with Frozen on the TV and a Winter Wonderland Spiked Mocha in your glass. If there’s one flick that has us dreaming of a winter wonderland, it’s Frozen!
You’ll think this drink came right from Elsa’s powers with an energizing blend of coffee and coconut rum. Nothing warms the heart quite like the love of family and a little help from this tasty drink too.
We’re super excited to try out alllll these cocktail/movie pairings while we’re at home. Let us know if you try any of them out for yourself!
