Some time ago on a previous Disney cruise, my aunt ordered The Tropical Depression, which is a cocktail of Light Rum, Vodka, Gin, Blue Curaçao, Grenadine, Sprite, and a splash of Sweet and Sour. I knew it was a strong drink based on experience, but recalled it still being quite good. I decided to order one during a day at sea to enjoy poolside. The bartender mentioned he “made it good.”
I loved the purple color, as when my aunt ordered it, she requested it without grenadine, leaving it a vibrant blue color.
My drink was mixed, and all I could taste was the alcohol. Primarily gin. There was no way I was going to be able to drink the concoction, so I headed over to one of the soda stations to see if I could perform a miracle on the drink. I grabbed two smaller cups, split the drink between them, and topped off with more Sprite, hoping the lemon-lime and sugar might soften the blow being delivered. I brought the two cups back to my lounge chair, and Matt and I both sampled. Nope, still not having it. At that point, I just decided to cut my losses and grab a beer from the bucket.
My question to you is, have you ever had this “problem” on property or DCL? I mean, thanks for “making it good,” but if it’s undrinkable, what’s the point? It’s not something that typically happens (Matt’s ordered doubles on the rocks that look like singles), and I’m sure I could have swapped it out for something different had I asked. I was just being lazy and cut my losses. How have your mixed drink experiences been? Did you speak up to remedy/save the cocktail? Let us know!
