REVIEW: Delicious Alcoholic & Non-Alcoholic Halloween Beverages from Hollywood Lounge at Disney California Adventure
If you’re looking to quench your thirst this Halloween season, Hollywood Lounge has new alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available, plus one returning drink.
Fanta Spooky Spirit – $15
Fanta Piña Colada with white rum and melon liqueur
This was like a piña colada with a bit more sugar. The Fanta adds some carbonation which makes this very refreshing. This was our favorite of the group. We couldn’t taste the rum in this one, but it was very good regardless.
Worms, Dice & Everything Nice – $22
Midori, peach schnapps, crème de menthe, orange juice, and pineapple juice topped with gummy worms and Oogie Boogie dice glow cubes
Worms, Dice & Everything Nice appeared in 2019, but this version has received major changes. The previous version was just Midori-lemonade. This was way better than before. The gummy worms and glow cubes are a fun Oogie twist. We could actually taste all the notes of the alcohol; peach schnapps on the front and a bit of a mint finish at the end from the créme de menthe.
PBJ & W – $16
PB & raspberry jam hard cider with peanut butter whiskey
The PBJ & W is a hard cider with a floater of peanut butter whiskey. The cider was light and crisp, with a bit of a peanut butter aftertaste. The whiskey cuts some of the crispness of the cider. If you don’t like peanut butter, you can skip this, but it’s not overwhelming.
Howl-o-Ween Concoction – $16
Pineapple michelada with white tequila and pineapple chamoy topped with spicy candy
We couldn’t taste the tequila in this at all — it’s a solid michelada. There’s a lot of pineapple notes to it, which brightens it up. For an extra creepy effect, the rim melts to look like blood. We would get this again, but give this a pass if you’re looking for a tequila beverage.
My Bugs! My Bugs! – $5.99
Limeade with grenadine float and gummy worms
This non-alcoholic drink returns from 2019. It’s a sweet slush with a hint of lime taste. Kids would enjoy it for sure, but it was way too sweet for us. Still, it’s definitely a fun Halloween drink.
Orange Cream Fanta-sy – $5.49
Fanta Orange infused with vanilla topped with whipped cream and black sprinkles
This is non-alcoholic, and kids will love it. It tastes like a creamsicle. It’s just orange Fanta with some vanilla syrup added, so it’s on the sweet side, but not undrinkable. There’s a huge heap of orange frosting on top that was too much for us, but again, kids would probably love it.
