Early last week on the Disney Parks Blog, it was announced that some new Bloody Marys would be joining the mix at Dawa Bar in the Harambe section of Animal Kingdom. This, along with a 9am opening time, made both Matt and I happy campers.
The selections are as follows, and they used Comic Sans on the menu, so you KNOW they mean business. The Loaded Bloody Mary Mix is Finest Call brand, and features tomato juice, Worcestershire, horseradish, jalapeno puree, and lemon juice (along with a bunch of other stuff in their ingredient list you probably don’t want to know). On a side note, despite the horseradish, which Matt can’t stand, it’s not overly used in this mix, and he’s been fine with the mix in the past. Each cocktail will set you back $9.50.
Discovery Island Bloody Mary: Grey Goose Vodka, Loaded Bloody Mary Mix, Lime Juice, and Olive Juice, garnished with Parsley and a skewer of Mozzarella Cheese, Tomato, Basil and Stuffed Olive
Dawa Bloody Mary: Our Signature Bloody Mary. Grey Goose Vodka, Loaded Bloody Mary Mix, Worcestershire Sauce, and Horseradish, garnished with Basil Leaf and a skewer of Truffle and Blue Cheese-stuffed Olive and Prosciutto
Asian Bloody Mary: Grey Goose Vodka, Loaded Bloody Mary Mix, Kim Chee-Sriracha Puree, garnished with Asian Slaw (cucumber, carrot, daikon radish, and Tandoori Shrimp)
African Bloody Mary: Grey Goose Vodka, Loaded Bloody Mary Mix, and Spicy African Berbere Sauce, garnished with Berbere-rubbed Beef Jerky, Celery Stalk, Carrot, and Parsley
While Matt is particularly interested in both the Asian and African Bloody Marys, he didn’t accompany on my trip to Animal Kingdom to check them out. It sounds like that will be remedied quickly, so we’ll have a few more reviews of the other drinks in the future. For my visit, however, I opted for the African Bloody Mary.
