Care to take a sip with us? Read on!
This fruity Julep drink is new on the menu at Thirsty River Bar – a great place to stop if you’re in need of some refreshment in the middle of your busy day adventuring around Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Released as part of the “Celebrate Soulfully” February foodie event across Walt Disney World, it’s a limited-time offering you simply cannot miss!
As detailed in the handy menu card, what we have here is a Pineapple-Mint Julep, spiked with Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon. This is blended with Pineapple Juice, Simple Syrup, and Mint, capped off with Fever-Tree Ginger Beer.
For $15.50, how good and refreshing does this sound?
As the “Celebrate Soulfully” event is taking place in alignment with Black History Month, the menu card also gives an insightful bit of information into this drink’s main inspiration – 19th century, Virginia-based bartender and historical figure, John Dabney.
The card states that the drink “is offered in tribute to his spirit of perseverance and resilience.”
We love this tribute, and appreciate our drink served with such a significant history twist!
It was MickeyBlog reporter Kayla who tried this drink for us, and she had nothing but good things to say about the treat!
Kayla told us that both the flavors of pineapple and mint shone through in this deliciously fresh and strong drink. While a lot of Disney Parks drinks in the past have proved a bit too sweet for our tastes, this one is beautifully refreshing and flavorsome, both from the pineapple and mint, with a warming hint of ginger at the end. We love it!
So, all in all, this Pineapple Mint Julep is a winner in our eyes.
We’d definitely recommend you stopping by Thirsty River on your next trip through Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and hope you enjoy this limited-time offering as much as we did!
