That Adult Tipple..

I know..Here's this Scotsman talking drink again..I was just thinking to myself, that during the day in the parks, not one drop of alcohol passes my lips..If I'am having a nice sit down dining experience at night,I'll enjoy a bottle of wine..( shared of course ) .And maybe the odd Margarita at La Cava at night..But my favourite time is when we get back to our resort at night..I can take off my shoes and let my puppies breath..Then relax with whatever I bring over on my duty free from Scotland..So this year I'am looking forward to having that adult nightcap on my balcony at WL...Over to you adults..What is your favourite time of day to enjoy your little sip of adult beverage.?.And what usually is it..?..

I'm pretty much alcohol free now Sad health rather than choice sadly. I love a fruity cocktail or a heavily iced baileys though.

I always say, you can't drink too much in Disney World.

Usually, we will have drinks with the dinner.....occasionally a beer with lunch.

The long answer:

I, on occassion, have a breakfast cocktail. Sometimes a drink with lunch. Usually one with dinner. I bring nips of rum and vodka to mix with soda in my resort mug while relaxing by the pool in the afternoon.

The short answer:

What The Colonel said. rolling

I don't think I have ever had a tipple in the World confused
However I intend to put that right next trip.
I am planning on treating myself to a bottle of Amaretto from duty free to drink on the rocks in the evenings at the start of the trip.
Not sure what I am going to take on the cruise just yet, or what hubby will want, but planning a trip to the liquor store/Walmarts for something to drink on our verandah while the children sleep.
I am planning on trying a few cocktails at the resorts, the Lapu Lapu being top of my list.

I remember that, it included fireworks at midnight every night.

A nice relaxing dinner and adult beverage is always the way to go. As long as you can still make it back to your room in one piece it's all good! awesome

usually have a few while we stroll around epcot and then I usually enjoy a little rum when we get back to the room either watching tv or sneak down to the pool for a late night dip before bed

it really depends...if it's F&W fest we're drinking early and often, if it's not F&W then Epcot days we start drinking w/lunch. If its DHS then 2ish or late lunch w/cocktails. AK usually with dinner. MK day is drink free until we get back to our resort or park hop. On the cruise ships well we follow captain Jack's rule of rum... there can never be enough!

At the Food and Wine Festival hubby and I usually share a few alcoholic offerings so we can sample a wider selection. Favorites of mine include the sparkling pomegranate kir at the France booth, the sangria at the Morocco booth, and sake from Japan. In terms of wine, my favorites are shiraz, malbec, riesling, and pinot grigio, although I've enjoyed many other varietals as well. I'm not a beer drinker at all, so if hubby wants one he's on his own.

Outside of the F&W Fest I usually like a glass of wine with dinner or possibly an aperitif (the kir at Les Chefs de France is a particular favorite of mine). But I have also been known to enjoy a gin and tonic or a bit of brandy on occasion.

Usually I have a drink in the evening, but at F&W Fest we'll sip all day long.

You know, I love those Grey Goose slush things, and I've been know to have one or two, but overall, I guess I just don't get the urge to drink very much at WDW. I did notice that even the All-Star resorts had shelves behind the gift shop counter with spirits and such, gin and whatever else. I recall seeing a Tanqueray bottle back there.

I haven't been to WDW since I've been of legal drinking age, so I'm really excited to try some of the things you folks have mentioned. I've also looked thru the menus of nearly every restaurant and written down a list of cocktails I want to sample lol

The wife and I would disguise our adult drinks in the refillable resort mug, and then OFF to the spa at night! Smile

I find it really hard to enjoy drinking when I'm paying $7+ dollars per drink/beer.

Such a shame! I didn't realized the whole district got dismantled until we visited last year. I remember it as a 14 yr old, but obviously I was not able to enjoy much at that age! I hope WDW has a development planned that caters to adults again.

If anybody ever goes while the food and wine festival is on and they are still serving the Singapore sling in Singapore I challenge anyone to try it!!!!! its potentially the strongest drink I have ever had (and that's including home-made drinks!!!)

on a personal note anyone mentions a cocktail and I'm there!!!

How did I ever miss this thread? LOL My all time favorite is a Grey Goose slush while watching Illuminations. But a leaping leprechaun in the R&C pub when it's really hot out isn't far behind.

I don't know that I have a favorite time of day to have a drink. I do love having a glass of wine and a soak in the spa at the end of the night. However, I love a glass of champagne or a mimosa with breakfast. I find it terribly indulgent and a little naughty so I try to make sure that it's always on my breakfast table during vacation.

I wasn't a vodka fan, until I discovered Grey Goose. I really do think that it's the best tasting vodka out there, because it blends so seamlessly into the drink. To me the Grey Goose slush simply tastes like a fantastic frozen lemonade.

We like to have wine with dinner and then maybe a cocktail during the day laying by the pool. For our trip coming up my future DH said he doesn't want to hold back on anything related to food or drinks so I imagine that bloody mary's or mimosas with breakfast will happen at least once. wink We also will be there for the Food and Wine Festival so I am sure we will have a few different drinks throughout the afternoon on a couple of days.

Okay, first you'll need to stop by Captain Cook's (Polynesian) and get a cup of Dole Whip, then proceed to the second floor to Tambu Lounge and order the Lapu Lapu...add the Dole Whip and enjoy!!!!
