Want to feel the Disney magic from the comfort of your home? Use The Unofficial Disney Parks Drink Recipe Book to craft your own Dole Whip or Blue Milk. There are also many cocktails from Oga’s Cantina to surprise guests at your next Star Wars party. For younger Disney fans, there are mocktails and lemonades, slushes and floats. Finally, many hot seasonally drinks are included like Pumpkin Pie Latte and Hot Holiday Cider.
I love the inclusion of recipes from the resorts near the Disney parks. With no young children, I will probably never go there. However, I can feel like I have while drinking some Keiki Lemonade or a Quake Shake.
Some of the drinks might be a little pricey. I’m looking at you Fuzzy Tauntaun. That numbing effect can only be achieved with toothache flowers sold online for $20. Still, it’s cheaper than a Disney park admission ticket. Most of the dessert drinks require an ice cream maker, which is now on my Christmas wish list. Many of the drinks use flavored syrups. That makes sense to keep the magic flowing quickly in the parks. Luckily, the author has included some inexpensive workarounds. My favorite was using the juice from a can of peaches for peach syrup.
Overall, The Unofficial Disney Parks Drink Recipe Book is a fun way to feel the Disney magic from the comfort of your home. 5 stars and a favorite!
