While the Parks of Walt Disney World are open (albeit with lots of changes), we know lots of fans won’t be venturing to the World any time soon.
If you’re missing the food and drinks of the Disney Parks, AllEars is here for you with tons of recipes you can recreate at home. And if you need a drink idea for your next office Zoom Happy Hour, why not try your hand at these Disney Parks cocktail recipes?
Disney Parks Cocktails for Your Next Zoom Happy Hour
Grab some tips from the La Cava’s resident mixologist and make your very own Blood Orange Margarita! With six simple ingredients, you can imagine you’re in EPCOT’s Mexico Pavilion sipping away instead of, well, in your living room.
Serving Size: 1
1/8 Cup Triple Sec Arrow
3/4 Cup Puree Orange Blood
1/8 Cup Tequila El Mayor Blanco
1/2 Fresh lime
3/8 Cup Hibiscus Syrup
1 Small container of Hibiscus Salt
Combine the Blood Orange puree, Triple Sec Arrow, Tequila Blanco or Silver, Hibiscus Syrup, and lime. Add ice and shake or mix well. Spread a small amount of the hibiscus salt on a small plate. Moisten the outer rim of the serving glass. Then dip the rim into the salt to lightly coat.
Take a walk on the wild side with the Snow Leopard cocktail from Animal Kingdom‘s Nomad Lounge! One of the most refreshing options on the list, the drink is made with a combination of mint, ginger beer, peach liqueur, and lime juice.
6 Mint Leaves
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Pear Liqueur
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3 oz Ginger Beer
Lime wheel for garnish, mint sprig for garnish
Put mint leaves, vodka, pear liqueur and fresh line juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice. Shake, then top with ginger beer.
Serve in a tall glass over ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and mint sprig.
Take a trip to EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion with the Italian Margarita! With three simple ingredients, the drink combines limoncello, grappa, and margarita mix, all of which you blend with ice for a frozen delight!

While you can’t go wrong with the Golden Gate Cocktail from California Grill for your Zoom Happy Hour, we also fully recommend drinking this concoction while replaying a stream of Happily Ever After for the ultimate Disney-from-home experience!

3/4 ounce Amaretto Disaronno
1/2 ounce cranberry juice
Orange slice, for garnish
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass. Squeeze the slice of orange into the drink.
You simply cannot go wrong with this classic! The Mint Julep is a Park icon from Disneyland’s Mint Julep Bar. While you can add alcohol to this one, the recipe below is for a delicious and refreshing mocktail!
Makes 2/3 Gallon
1 Cup Sugar
3 tsp Lime Juice Concentrate
3 Cups Club Soda
6 Tbsp Creme de Menthe Syrup (not liqueur)
