Are We Starting Off Monday with a Spicy Watermelon Margarita?!

Oh, of course not, folks.  Well, not literally, at least!  Maybe just in spirit, eh?  Or, is that … in spirits?

Anyway, not to be overdone by Evan Chaisson’s romp through the Animal Kingdom’s Nomad Lounge, I’d like to present a refreshment that we experienced – a Spicy Watermelon Margarita!

Wait a minute.  Who am I kidding?  Our one little incredibly sweet, tart, yet habanero- spicy, beverage won’t hold a candle to Evan’s epic collection of cocktails.  Check it out at …

Then, if that’s not enough, please check out Evan “live” and on the air as he dropped by the WDW Main Street Pub to give Doug and John an action-packed trip report!  Find that at …

Episode 409 – Evan’s Trip Report!

Having said all of that, before I get to the watermelon, I have one small piece of business to conclude.  What is that?  Well, I asked you to choose All in WDW’s Holiday Dessert, remember?

It was, oh so, close!  I was rooting for the Warm Caramel-Stuffed Salted Pretzel, I have to admit.  But, in the end, you “bought” us Epcot’s Warm Apple Fritter with Cinnamon Ice Cream and Warm Caramel Sauce!

Now, back to the “fruit” in question … watermelon!  Where can this delight be found?  In Disney’s Yacht Club!  My friends, stop in and visit the crew at … The Crew’s Cup!

Within, you’ll find a very friendly staff, warm and welcoming decor, great food, and tasty drinks!  Enjoy!

Beverage Recon: Habañero Lime Margarita

One of my favorite Disney “signature” beverages is the Habañero Lime Margarita.

Habanero Margarita in Menu

This margarita is made of Patron Silver Tequila, Habañero Lime (a flavored syrup loaded with the heat of habañero and the tartness of lime), and a house-made Sweet-and-Sour.

It is a symphony of “around-the-rim” saltiness, “margarita-mix” sour-sweetness, with a nice hot-pepper kick.  For me, it is very unique and tells me that I’m in Walt Disney World.

Hah!  Not that I drink that many of them, mind you.  They are kind of pricey, after all, and, well, it’s loaded with tequila!  If I drank too many of them, I wouldn’t be able to walk around the parks!

What about you?  What “special” beverages or cocktails are on your list of WDW vacation “must haves”?
