Keith,good to know about subbing the POG for Gorilla Grog. Gonna experiment with this tomorrow.
Jungle Chris, my girl and I are there Monday at 6, too. We'll have to exchange a TC "aloha" if we bump into each other.

Ok, maybe we'll see you at the next Don's?

Hopefully I see you there Finky.

So it's been bugging me, so I went to sams Saturday night and ordered a shipwreck and there certainly is something else in it, club soda maybe? I guess I can ask the bartender tonight. I'm super excited!

Nope - what I posted is it. Either your taster is off or you got a messed up drink, which depending on the bartender (lots of newbies hired lately) could be a possibility. Shipwreck's just a revised Whiskey Smash.

I was Trader Sam's Sunday night and Michael was working. He used to be a bartender/manager at the old Don the Beachcomber. He makes four drinks not on the menu, but they are in my opinion, better than any of the drinks on the Sam's menu. He makes a Navy Grog, Lapu Lapu, Island Wolfhound, and a King Kamehameha Mai Tai. I'm thinking the Mai Tai is a pared down version of the Don's Mai Tai recipe.

I liked the Island Wolfhound the best, but all were excellent. He mentioned they are stronger than any of the drinks on the Sam's menu, but the alcohol is well hidden. He was right - I was buzzing for hours and had a small hangover to deal with the next morning.

Went back that night to have one last drink and Michael wasn't working. So I had a Shrunken Zombie Head and it tasted so unsophisticated compared to the previous night's drinks. Reinforced the fact that I've been ruined forever by well crafted cocktails!

Ah, so my assumption for the Shipwreck on the Rocks was pretty spot on - just had an extra mint leaf, but I'll continue making them as I have been! The latest video straight from Disney Insider on their cocktails:

That's four mint leaves?:


Looks closer to a dozen to me, or does a group of leaves count as one?

They use 4, can't blame Cristian for using tongs for mint leaves and the lemon, haha. Can you imagine the time added to all drinks if they tonged everything? That's corporate video for you. It also looks like I was correct after all in that it is 4 and not 3; I said 3 based off the video description in the box below.

Anyway, its just a Whiskey Smash so nothing new here!
