REVIEW: Celebrate ‘Rogers: The Musical’ With New Patriotic Punch & Black Cherry Hard Tea at Disney California Adventure

Hollywood Lounge has introduced two new beverages to celebrate “Rogers: The Musical” debuting at the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure.

There’s the alcoholic Blue Cherry Hard Tea and a non-alcoholic Patriotic Punch.

As always, alcoholic beverages at Disneyland Resort are served in yellow cups, while the non-alcoholic drinks are in clear cups.

Patriotic Punch – $6.49

Sprite and white cranberry juice with blue raspberry and cherry syrups topped with whipped cream (Non-alcoholic)

In contrast to the Red, White, & Blue Shake at Schmoozies!, this drink had too much going on. The flavors are fine on their own, but combined, it’s sickly sweet.

There was too much whipped cream, which adds to the sugar overload and immediately began melting into a huge mess. We don’t recommend this.

Blue Hard Cherry Tea – $17

Vodka, Gin, Rum, and Tequila with White Cranberry Juice and Blue Raspberry & Cherry Syrups

For some reason, we had to order and pay for this at Hollywood Lounge but walk over to Studio Catering Co. to pick it up.

The Blue Hard Cherry Tea (with no tea listed in the ingredients) tastes like a well-mixed tropical Long Island iced tea with blue raspberry and Sprite.

It’s on the sweeter side, but not as bad as the punch. We could not taste the alcohol. It was an average drink that we won’t go out of our way to buy again.

Rogers: The Musical

Below is an official description of this new musical experience:

Exploring universal themes of heroism, romance and self-discovery, “Rogers: The Musical” is an exhilarating and heartfelt experience for Super Hero fans, theater enthusiasts and families alike. Avengers aficionados will appreciate creative interpretations of iconic objects and moments from Steve’s journey, while theater fans will love the eclectic array of musical styles in the score and the show’s original choreography.

“Rogers: The Musical” at Disney California Adventure park is inspired by the fictional Broadway musical theater sequence featured in the first episode of the Disney+ series “Hawkeye.” This new musical project will come to life through the creativity of Disney Live Entertainment in partnership with book writer Hunter Bell, star and book writer of the Tony Award-nominated “[title of show],” and will feature five all-new songs with music by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Lennertz and lyrics by Jordan Peterson, Christopher Lennertz and Alex Karukas. Plus, fan-favorites songs “Save The City” from the Disney+ series “Hawkeye” (written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman), and “Star Spangled Man” from the film “Captain America: The First Avenger” (written by Alan Menken and David Zippel).
