Breakfast at Rainforest Cafe

animal-kingdom-rainforest-cafe

This past weekend, I made an early trip to Animal Kingdom and stopped by Rainforest Cafe to try their breakfast. I started with a Jungle Fever – Spicy Bloody Mary Mix (I’m guessing Finest Call brand) and vodka blended with “secret seasonings.” It’s topped with their “famous Kettle Chips,” which I believe are Cape Cod chips.

The drink was okay with some doctoring – Tabasco, salt, pepper. The glass was rimmed with celery salt, which I used my straw to scrape and stir in. It was one of those “you know what you’re walking into” situations in terms of the cocktail.

Breakfast at Grand Floridian Cafe

Over the holiday weekend, I met up with some friends at Magic Kingdom. I decided to start my day a little earlier, however, and visited the Grand Floridian Cafe for breakfast. Since I was about to venture into MK for a few hours, I figured I might as well start my day with a Florida Sunshine. I enjoyed this cocktail on my last breakfast visit here a little over a year ago. It features Peach Schnapps, Chambord, Skyy Vodka, and a splash of Orange and Cranberry Juices.

I was looking for something substantial since I didn’t have any plans on the agenda for dining while at MK. At the same time, I didn’t want to feel weighed down by too many carbs, so I opted for the Sirloin Steak and Eggs.
