DAY TWENTY: Potion of the Gods at Mythos (Islands of Adventure)

Potion of the Gods at Mythos.

Mythos in Islands of Advneture just may be the most well themed restaurant in all of Orlando, and imagine what that is saying. The outside of this humongous building looks to be chiseled out of rock, with waterfalls and giant stone men throughout. Inside, Mythos offers a menu that is certainly a long way away from your standard theme park hamburger and chicken fingers, and at almost shockingly low prices compared to what you normally will find at in-park table service restaurants. But we’re not here to talk about the Mediterranean meatballs or the daily risotto, we’re here to talk drinks, and we’re going to recommend the signature drink at Mythos: Potion of the Gods. Served in a glass fit for Zeus himself, this drink includes a whole lot of alcohol, but served with plenty of juices to help it go down easily.

Ingredients: Malibu, Captain Morgan, Triple Sec, Razzmatazz, orange, cranberry & pineapple juices with a float of Bacardi 151.

(Full disclosure: I have nothing but high praise for Mythos, but it is not everybody’s cup of tea. Take for example the world famous Disney Hipsters, who compare Mythos to Applebee’s).

If you don’t believe Mythos is good, they have a sign reminding you.

The theory of this photo was much better than how it turned out, creative wise. This is why Your Humble Author is not the staff photographer.
