Drink 2 isn’t actually moonshine, but you probably already knew that. (This is Disney World after all.) This Moonshine is a cocktail that we tried this summer at the outdoor/porch bar at House of Blues in Downtown Disney. A simple combination of vodka, Peach Schnapps, and lemon lime soda, it’s light and not too sweet. Kind of like a peach soda with a bit of a kick.
If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, here’s the recipe for it courtesy of HOB Hollywood online.
- 1/2 ounce Stolichnaya Vodka
- 1/2 ounce Peach Schnapps
- lemon lime soda such as Sprite or 7-Up to fill
As far as the atmosphere of this location, the outdoor environment is decidedly low-key and welcoming. You can enjoy your drinks right at the bar, sit on the porch and relax, or pull up a chair to one of the several tables in the courtyard out front. If you’re a live music fan, it’s also a great spot to catch local musicians performing on a small stage out front in the evening hours.
It’s worth a mention that the House of Blues restaurant is one of the few places on property that has a Happy Hour. In fact, they have two – one in the late afternoon, and one in late evening. Be sure to head inside for some southern-style cooking and cheap cocktails. (Side note/plea: Someone please return the Wild Mushroom Pasta to the menu!)
Drink 3 will take us to Epcot. But where?
