REVIEW: Chocolate Lumps of Coal, Cookies and Milk, and More Christmas Items Delight at Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar in Disney Springs

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar has once again been transformed into Jock Lindsey’s “Holiday” Bar, complete with decorations and special treats.


The bar has been overtaken by garland, Christmas knick-knacks, trees, and presents.


The holiday menu includes several drinks and food items, all of which will be available through December 30.

Cookies and Milk – $27

Assorted Christmas cookies and coquito


Coquito means “little coconut” in Spanish and is a traditional Christmas drink from Puerto Rico made with coconut milk and rum.


It’s more like eggnog than milk. It’s thick and creamy and ours had some chunks in it. The taste of alcohol isn’t very present.


It’s not the way to go if you expect a milk consistency, but it’s definitely enjoyable with the cookies.


Among the cookies is a soft oatmeal cookie sandwich with a white sugar glaze, filled with a thin layer of cookie butter. It’s a great item and a nice surprise, but unfortunately, there’s only one on the plate.


The stars are sugar cookies with berries baked in and a berry jam filling in the center. The filling isn’t very present and it’s a very light cookie.


The mittens have a rich dark chocolate taste.


Last year’s plate included mint cookies, but we’re fine with them being left out this year.

Claus Mo – $16

Traditional cosmopolitan with a shimmery twist, garnished with red sugar


This is pretty simple. It tastes like your classic cosmopolitan with a sugar rim. It’s not overly alcoholic.


Yule Mule – $13

Gin, ginger beer, cranberry juice, and rosemary simple syrup, with a holly leaf sugar garnish


This takes some getting used to. At first, it tastes like you’re drinking a fresh-cut Christmas tree, but it settles after a few more sips.


It’s not our favorite on the menu, but if you like a mule with a twist, this might be the way to go.

Holiday Lights Deviled Eggs – $12

Colored deviled eggs with tobiko and shrimp


This might be our favorite on the holiday menu. It has a nice mix of flavors.


The shrimp on top was cooked well. But if you’re not a fan of cold seafood, this may not be for you.


We were relieved that the egg coloring didn’t color our mouths.

Venison Sliders – $14


These are the same sliders as last year. The deer meat taste is very outspoken.


That combined with the cranberry sauce means this isn’t everyone’s favorite.


Lump of Coal Dessert – $12

Cookies and cream ganache “coal”


This item is new this year and will definitely be a go-to “Instagrammable” treat. It comes served under a cloche, which the Cast Member then lifts to an outpouring of smoke.


Beneath the cloche are the “lumps of coal” sitting on a fire.


The coal is crushed up Oreo cookies with chocolate ganache to keep it all together. It’s then dipped in chocolate to form a lump.


It’s a very chocolatey dessert, so we recommend dipping it in the provided vanilla sauce for a delicious balance.


Besides being very dramatic and photogenic, this is one of our favorite desserts this year.


Fried Brussel Sprouts – $8

Fried Brussel sprouts with bacon vinaigrette


This may not be the prettiest dish on the menu, but it’s still great.


It’s a nice portion and the Brussels sprouts are nice and crispy. They taste great with the bacon vinaigrette.


Had the bacon not been included, it would have been a perfect vegetarian option.

Ham and Brie Flatbread – $9

Shaved ham and brie cheese, pomegranate seeds, granny smith apples, apple vinaigrette, and watercress


There’s a lot going on with this flatbread, but the crust is perfect and the ham and brie are fantastic.


Other flavors show up and then quickly upstage each other.
