REVIEW: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar Holiday Cocktails at Disney Springs
Ole Jock Lindsey, is getting into the Christmas spirit with two new cocktails at his Disney Springs hanger bar – one that hits the holiday spot while the other makes very little case to be a seasonal offering.
Jock’s Holiday Nog – $12.50
Crafted from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Frangelico liqueur, Rumchata Caribbean Rum, vanilla and topped with peppermint candies, this holiday nog has a creamy taste without getting too sweet. Though not overly boozy on the front end, it does leave a little hazelnut tang on the tongue and would catch up with you quick as the vanilla eases you in to every sip. To be clear, this is not a peppermint drink – the flakes are all for show and smell, but, if you’re a fan of Rumchata, then this is the drink for you.
Jock Frost – $11.50
A mix of Malibu Rum, Rumchata, Blue Curacao liqueur and pineapple juice, this drink looks more like a winter wonderland than it tastes. With its fruit punch smell, perhaps the hope is to give you visions of Christmas office parties past, but the drink’s bold citrus flavors (the pineapple especially) feel more akin to a beach resort’s menu. The more traditionally seasonal Rumchata is completely lost in the Blue Curacao, but taken on its own terms, the cocktail is still good, especially if your lemon garnish is squeezed in.
So if you’re looking for a great holiday cocktail, Jock Lindsey’s Hanger Bar has that in its Holiday Nog. If you’re looking to forget about Christmas altogether, oddly the Jock Frost is for you.
