T-Rex probably isn’t the first place you think of when choosing a spot to grab a drink at Downtown Disney. But if your travels take you there, think about trying one of their cotton-tinis, a drink that combines a traditional theme park treat with cocktail goodness.
T-Rex offers three different varities of cotton-tinis. They are:
|Tropical Cotton-Tini Malibu Coconut Rum and tropical fruit juices with cotton candy|
|Cosmo-Paleo Cotton-Tini XR Fusion Liqueur, Skyy Infusions Citrus Vodka and cranberry juice with cotton candy|
|Candy-Apple Cotton-Tini Finlandia Vodka, DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps and a splash of sweet & sour mixed with cotton candy|
No matter which cotton-tini flavor you choose, you start with a martini glass filled with cotton candy.
The cocktail itself is mixed in a shaker and then poured over the top of the cotton candy.
Finally, you end up with a confectionary cocktail concoction that looks something like this. This picture is of the “Tropical Cotton-tini.”
Surprisingly, with all that sugar in there, the drinks are not overly sweet. However, you do end up with a layer of the sugar at the bottom of your glass so drinking that last sip might be.
The T-Rex cotton-tinis are $10.99 each and include the souvenir shaker.
