New drinks at Sam's!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/05/tangaroa-terrace-menu-gets-makeover-plus-three-new-drinks-at-trader-sams-at-disneyland-hotel/

"Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar fans will love three new cocktails. Start with the Murky Mojito made with rum, fresh lime juice, mint and organic agave nectar topped with a splash of Angostura bitters. Or the Passionate Python with dark and aged rums, red passion fruit and tropical juices, garnished with an orange peel “python.” If you’re foregoing alcohol, try the Polynesian Punch, a mix of Sam’s Gorilla Grog with hibiscus grenadine. Sit back, sip and let the fun begin."

Hopefully that's the sign that a new mug is on the way, too.

I hope the new drinks at Sam's are good. I have noticed that generally there is a huge difference between "classic" cocktails and "restaurant consultant" cocktails. Often this is caused by the inability (or reluctance) of bar owners/operators to buy pricier ingredients like the good rums and other flavorings which we here appreciate so much. Sam's is fun, and I hope to see new mugs accompany the new drinks.

For the record, those are old-new drinks that have been out about a month ago. Passionate Python is the Sidewinder's Fang. I've been told that Murky Mojito is "a version of" a 151 Swizzle (though I don't see the relation myself).

No new mugs for these, though the non-alcoholic Polynesian Punch comes in the sipper used for Enchanted Tiki Room that is currently available since the last D23:

Ah. Def new to me… and they pushed them for the first time on the blog, today.

Nice to see they're using the sipper cup at Sam's. That's a nice piece, even if it is plastic.

The sipper cups were out for a good stretch of time, which resulted in people claiming they were limited edition on ebay.

Well they originally WERE advertised by Disney as limited edition (1000 if I recall). They sold out very quickly. They made a comeback during D23 expo last year and have been around since (so much for limited, much like a lot of their "limited time magic" offerings last year). As for the new drinks, they've been there a little while now. Finally got around to trying them on Monday. The Murky Mojito was ok, nothing special to me, though I'm the wrong person to ask as I really don't care for mint. The Passionate Python was much too sweet for my taste, though we had a brand new bartender just learning the drinks so perhaps I should give it a shot another time. I think the Polynesian punch may have been the same thing they were serving at the outside bar during D23, I'll have to check to be sure, my memory of that day is a little murky.

We visited last week and my daughter ordered that drink. It was tasty, but the tiki glass it is offered in was sold out and unavailable.

I'm guessing the Polynesian Punch (sipper above).
