Cocktails: Backscratcher

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday weekend! Like any great holiday, it calls for drinks. One of my favorite cocktails at WDW can be found at the Tambu Lounge in the Polynesian Resort: the Backscratcher!

The Backscratcher is a combination of both light and dark rums mixed with passion fruit juice and topped with a floater of Jack Daniels. It is normally served with a bamboo backscratcher in the glass, but we don’t really need it so request the bartender to “hold the backscratcher.” This drink has a serious kick, but is also light and refreshing.

Next time you find yourself at Tambu Lounge, be sure to order one or two of these cocktails. Don’t forget that you can also order it to go in a plastic cup so you can take it to the beach and view Wishes! or the Electrical Water Pageant. Cheers!
