Smee would drink the Runner's Margarita

Can You Get Electro-LIT With The Runner’s Margarita? (No.)

The Runner’s Margarita has been a long time coming. I’ve been pondering it awhile, but it was only last weekend that I finally sprang for the full bottle of tequila I required for my experiment. A classic margarita, made from scratch, is very simple. You only really NEED three ingredients: tequila, lime juice, and an orange liqueur like triple sec or Grand Marnier. I make a pretty decent margarita and paloma if I do say so myself. Of course the problem with margaritas is that they contain alcohol(!), which is dehydrating, not to mention a bit sugary depending on...

GALAXY’S EDGE <3s MILK How about we start with the drinks, the myths, the legends: blue and green milk. Obviously we...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Drinks & A Snack At Oga’s Cantina

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! I think we can all agree by now that a reservation at Oga’s Cantina is an absolute must for every WDW trip. Heck, I’m not even much of a Star Wars gal, and even I think that. It’s still a hot ticket, and I had to fight to get it, but it was well worth the effort. In fact, I’d despite the quieter atmosphere due to COVID restrictions, this time around was even better than the first. And I owe...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Tiffins

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! When planning out the advanced dining reservations for our May trip, the first name I threw out was Tiffins. I’ve been to Nomad Lounge, the attached bar space, many a time, but never the restaurant proper. I heard it was kinda expensive but worth it, and luckily Becky was down! Follow along with the menu here. I must say here, at the outset of my review, that this really is a top-notch restaurant. Although the themes are far...

Have you ever eschewed an evening in one of the parks in favor of a bar crawl at Disney Springs? Sounds crazy, right? Well YOU SHOULD DO IT. Becky and I did and it was awesome! I talked about our evening in the general sense in my trip report proper, but I wanted to give the bars in question a well-deserved spotlight. ¡Adelante! BEGIN THE DISNEY SPRINGS BAR CRAWL! Our first stop, the only one for which we had a...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Guac On The Rock At La Cava Del Tequila

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Unlike some of my other new drinking and dining experiences, I was already a huge fun of La Cava del Tequila going into this trip. It’s the site of my first-ever tequila shot and everything! On this particular (and Cinco de Mayo!) day, La Cava was doing a promotion where if you buy a shot of Dwayne Johnson’s brand of tequila Teremana, he will reimburse you for a serving of guacamole. Would we have bought a shot if not for this...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Lunch At BaseLine Tap House

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Fact: Becky absolutely adores BaseLine Tap House in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Fact: I had never been to BaseLine Tap House. WE WENT. And while the theming is subtle and the offerings are basic, it didn’t disappoint. Follow along with the menu here. BASELINE BEER! BaseLine is intended to feel like a California craft brewpub, and while it does offer some wines and cocktails its pride is its rotating collection of beers. Faced with such a selection, I did the only thing...

Enchanted Rose Lounge drink

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At The Enchanted Rose Lounge

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Our last-minute decision to walk over to the Grand Floridian for dinner at the Enchanted Rose was made casually, but it turned out to be one of my favorite meals of the trip. Brace yourself, because you’re about to be hit in the face with some AMAZING drinks. (Metaphorically. Listen, if I really could, I would.) Drinks at the Enchanted Rose are not cheap. But what they lack in low cost, they make up for in high value. While you...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Lunch At The Wave

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Our first sit down meal of the the trip was at The Wave, a monorail restaurant in The Contemporary that seems to fly under the radar. Yeah, it’s not elaborately themed or a character meal, and no, it’s not fine dining a la California Grill or Narcoossee’s, but it’s definitely worth a trip out of the culinary wasteland that is the Magic Kingdom at the very least. Let’s dive (PUNS) in, shall we? Follow along with the menu here. DRINKS...
