REVIEW – An Unexpected Tropical Holiday Cocktail at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Share This!

When you think about the glitz and glamour of tinsel town and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you may not think of tropical drinks. But, a favorite lounge inside Hollywood Studios, known more for its sophisticated martinis, is now serving two holiday cocktails with a tropical twist.

The Brown Derby Lounge is a favorite lounge among many Disney fans. Normally this lounge has a great menu of sophisticated handcrafted cocktails and small plates featuring some of the best flavors offered in the Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant. Sadly, this lounge is currently only operating as a walk-up bar for to-go drinks. The irony is that you cannot walk around and sip on your drink; you need to be stationary due to COVID-19 precautions.

Right now two tropical holiday cocktails are offered: Hollywood Lights and Christmas on the Beach. Both feature rum, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice, and come with a glow cube – of course. At $15.00 they are priced on average with specialty cocktails that include the glow cube. Chrissy on our team selected the Christmas on the Beach cocktail.

With Parrot Bay Coconut Rum and Blue Curaçao, this drink is full of tropical vibes. The cranberry juice adds a little holiday touch, but the pineapple juice keeps it tropical. If you’re looking to celebrate the season in true tropical style then this drink is perfect for you.
