Summer is approaching fast in Florida, and that can mean only one thing: grab the tequila. It’s time to enjoy some Margaritas!
So we’re pretty excited to see that Dockside Margaritas will be opening this week at Downtown Disney Marketplace in Walt Disney World. Or, rather, reopening?
Because we all know that the Margarita Bar that was located at Downtown Disney Marketplace before the refurb was a great place to chill during a visit to the shopping and entertainment district. With shady seating on a deck that was situated slightly beneath the crazy of Downtown Disney, it offered a welcome respite; and the waterfront seating provided some comfortable breezes.
The new Dockside Margaritas will be fashioned to look like a fruit stand. The location will specialize in fresh tastes of Florida — perfectly in keeping with the rest of Disney Springs.
While the old spot offered some interesting drink options, the new spot promises to be even better, and to have a wider variety of choices.
You’ll still be able to enjoy several different margarita options, and some of the previously available drinks will return, although it appears that the recipes might be freshened up a bit.
Here’s the Margarita Menu:
- Patrón Añejo Margarita – Patrón Barrel Select Añejo Tequila, Grand Marnier, Sweet-and-Sour and fresh Lime Juice
- Habanero Lime Margarita – Patrón Silver Tequila, Habanero Lime, fresh Lime Juice and Florida Sugar Cane Simple Syrup
- Sunset Margarita – Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, fresh Lime Juice, Sweet-and-Sour and Orange Juice
- Strawberry Margarita – Herradura Reposado Tequila and fresh Lime Juice blended with Strawberry Purée
But if you’re not a margarita lover, there are lots of other cocktails to try — all featuring spirits created right in the Sunshine State!
The Florida Citrus Freeze will be a mix of Florida Cane ‘Orlando Orange’ Vodka and Peach Schnapps blended with Orange Purée. We are also happy to see a Rum Runner return to the line up. The updated Orange Grove Rum Runner combines Siesta Key Spiced Rum, Blackberry Brandy, Crème de Banana, and Florida Citrus Juices with a float of Gosling’s 151 Rum. Sounds pretty great!
Finally, rum fans will have another drink to choose from. The Sugar Cane Mojito is served up with Siesta Key Silver Rum, Florida Sugar Cane Simple Syrup, fresh Lime Juice, and Mint for a classic, clean flavor.
But the really big news is that Dockside Margaritas will also offer several Florida Beers and Wines that we’ve seen showcased at both the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival!
Look for Florida Craft Beers such as Orange Blossom Pilsner, Bold City Duke’s Brown Ale, and Cigar City Jai Alai IPA. Tropical Florida Wines will include Mango Mamma and Key Limen.
The opening is scheduled for this Thursday, April 23.
