25 Drinks of Christmas Countdown – Day 3: Godiva Chocolate Martini at Mizner’s Lounge

We’re back with everyone’s favorite theme park advent calendar: a daily countdown of our favorite drinks at Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld building anticipation to the Big Day. 

Criteria: Drinks can be alcoholic or nonalcoholic. Drinks can come from any venue on property. Bonus points awarded for atmosphere where the drink is served. Any drink with glow cubes is immediately disqualified. Ready? Let’s go!

DAY TWO: Godiva Chocolate Martini at Mizner’s Lounge (Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort)

Located on the second floor of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Mizner’s Lounge has an intimate setting, indoor seating and a full bar menu. Because Mizner’s is located in the Main Building of the Grand Flo, it is nearby to the live jazz band that plays during the day and we have a hard time finding something more relaxing then sipping on a Godiva Chocolate Martini while listening to that wonderful music (the band even plays Christmas songs during the holiday season). As a bonus, Mizner’s offers mixed nuts to its bar patrons, and as one of the few “free” things you can get at WDW, be sure to take advantage.

Ingredients: Stoli Vanil Vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, White Crème de Cacao, and Frangelico

There are many fantastic Cast Members at Walt Disney World and we’d like to send a big thank you for years of great service to Tammy, a longtime bartender at Mizner’s.

Another Must Do drink at Mizner’s Lounge is their signature Mizner Cooler. An absolutely refreshing drink that should be a part of anyone’s future Monorail Bar Crawl.

Ingredients: St-Germain, Nolet’s Gin, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup, Soda Water, and Fresh Mint

    A favorite at GF: Stitch’s Revenge: Bud Light, habanero pepper sauce, tobacco, sriracha, with a roasted ghost pepper stick as a stirrer. Those over 50 get complimentary Depends.
