How To Make Disney Parks' Drinks At Home & Sip Some Magic Whenever You Wish
There's no need to pack your bags, because the perfect Disney day is waiting for you at home. There are virtual ride videos you can watch and fireworks shows to stream, so now all you need to know is how to make Disney parks' drinks at home, and you're set. You've probably seen copycat recipes of your favorite park snacks and desserts, but sometimes, you want your fave Disney drink in hand when you're relaxing on the couch.
Luckily, there are recipes out there that don't require a park ticket in order for you to enjoy them. These 10 Disney drink recipes are perfect for when you simply want to treat yourself and experience a cup of magic while watching a Disney film. You could also whip up a round of drinks for you and your roomies the next time you're all hanging out. There are some classic non-alcoholic drinks like a Dole Whip Float that anyone can enjoy, and some cocktails from Trader Sam's (if you're 21 or up).
The best way to enjoy any of these drinks is when you're unwinding at home, imaging your dream Disney day. Just don't forget the selfie of you enjoying your finished product and savoring every last sip.
1. Dole Whip Float
You likely know and love the infamous Dole Whip that you can get in Adventureland at either Magic Kingdom or Disneyland. Well, this Dole Whip Float is also on the menu, and it's served with Dole Pineapple Juice. By following this easy recipe at home, you'll be enjoying this drink and singing the Tiki Room song in no time.
2. 'Star Wars' Blue Milk
If you've been to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, you may have tried the colorful Blue Milk at the Milk Stand. The menu doesn't really explain what it is, except that it's made with coconut and rice milk. This makes it a tad difficult to recreate at home, but this Blue Milk copycat recipe really breaks things down for you.
3. Wildberry Lemonade
Another non-alcoholic drink everyone can enjoy at home is this Wildberry Lemonade from Carthay Circle at Disney California Adventure Park. It's a simple recipe with just wildberry syrup, lemonade, and sparkling water, but the wildberry whipped cream, mint, and blackberries on top truly make this an Instagram-worthy sip.
4. Krakatoa Punch
One of the iconic cocktails at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar is the Krakatoa Punch. Typically, when you order this at the bar, it will cause a "volcano eruption." But at home, it'll just cause an eruption of fun as you mix things up with this tasty recipe. If you have any tiki mugs at home, it's a prime time to break them out.
5. Fun Wheel
The Fun Wheel was a cocktail on the menu when Lamplight Lounge at California Adventure was The Cove Bar. However, you can still order this off the menu item when you go to Disneyland. Though, you won't need to visit Disneyland just to order this drink, because with this recipe, you can make it at home whenever you want.
6. Oga's Cantina Drinks
If you're able to snag a reservation to Oga's Cantina in Galaxy's Edge, you'll be able to try an assortment of out-of-this-world cocktails on the menu. Though, you don't really need a reservation in order to try them. Thanks to this video, you have the recipe for five different cocktails, including the Fuzzy Tauntaun.
7. Mint Julep
8. Piña CoLAVA
9. Shipwreck On The Rocks
Another great cocktail from Trader Sam's is this Shipwreck on the Rocks. The effect that happens in the bar when you order this drink is, of course, a shipwreck, where the bartenders may spritz you with water.
10. Orange Slush
If you're a Disney parks fan, you might have "drink around the world at Epcot" on your bucket list. It's a fun way to experience all the countries in the World Showcase with your friends. When you're in France, you should definitely try the Grand Marnier Orange Slush at the kiosk across from Chefs de France. Though, you can enjoy it without traveling by following this simple copycat recipe.
