In Which Jenn Needs A (Disney) Drink

Disney cutting board

Darn it, guys, these are not the posts I had planned for April. We were going to discuss my park wardrobe. We were gonna geek out together over my race costume. We were going to squee joyously over my trip plans. And today, I was going to drive the point home: tomorrow I go to Walt Disney World!

Only I’m not. If you can imagine.

Ah, well. We’re all coping as best we can. And one way I’ve been coping with missing Disney is with alcohol.

Wait wait wait – not like that! Rather, I’ve been following along with La Cava del Tequila’s Instagram Live streams. You know La Cava, right? Mexico pavilion? Site of my first-ever tequila shot?

They’ve been explaining how to make a lot of their fancier drinks, but I’ve kept it simple – I made a paloma (grapefruit soda, tequila, lime) and a classic margarita (tequila, orange liqueur, lime, agave syrup), both of which were excellent for a person who has mostly let bartenders mix her cocktails for her.

And to really drive home the Disney angle, I’ve been using some of my Disney household items. There’s the cutting board above, plus I finally got a chance to put my modest collection of Disney shot glasses to good use!

Sorry, my bad – Disney doesn’t make shot glasses. They make, um, “mini glasses,” or as I have heard they are more recently referred to, “toothpick glasses.” Sure, Jan.

Anyway. Even though I rarely take shots outside of celebratory events, for a few years there I purchased quite a few shot glasses at Disney parks. Observe!

That Disneyland glass is really hard to photograph. Please rest assured effort was made. And I can’t believe it’s been almost ten years since I bought the 40th Anniversary glass!

Now that I’ve actually found a purpose for these bad boys, I may have to pick up a few more, if I see one with a nifty design. And I bet they’ll have something for the 50th anniversary…

Cheers, guys. To making it home some day.

Do you collect Disney shot glasses? Sorry, toothpick holders?
