Around the World in 80 Drinks: Drink 2 – Moonshine

PhotoGrid_1382313087592

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.

It’s not actually moonshine, but it’s not a glass of water either    (even though it looks like one)

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?
