Paddlefish at Disney Springs Introduces New Mixology Class - Here’s my Review

Paddlefish at Disney Springs Introduces New Mixology Class - Here’s my Review

IMG_0201.JPG

Day drinking and weekend brunching is taken to a whole new and classy level. Paddlefish has introduced a new interactive mixology class that takes place on the rooftop area of Disney Spring’s Paddlefish Restaurant.

The event takes place early in the day on a Saturday morning, from 12 noon until 2pm. Who says the party has to start when the sun goes down?  

The Event Structure  

During the event, guests watch the bartenders and mixologists from the restaurant demonstrate how to properly create each signature drink. Volunteers are called to the front during each demo, giving all the guests a chance to make the drinks themselves along with the mixologist.

The Drinks

All guests are also given a recipe card showing the names and ingredients of each drink that you can take home. 

Everyone received a total of 5 DRINKS. YES. 5. Not sample sizes honey... actual drink sizes. Be sure to drink responsibly . Most people would sip the drinks they were given. 

Without further ado, below are the drinks I tried. 

French 75

My favorites were the Passion Le Poire, Summer Blush, and French 75. All of them had a citrus element to them, and the last one was very sunmery and will make you feel you are on a tropical island in pure bliss. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the last one. French 75 is the one up version of a mimosa and packs a bigger punch. I’m in love with these drinks. Super delicious and beautiful. 

The Food

The food that was given was appetizer style. We shared amongst 4 people at our table. You get about 3-4 food apps during the event. I would highly suggest eating before the event... something I did not do.. whoops!

We got spinach cheese dip with nachos, fried tomatoes , and calamari.  

Final Thoughts

Overall, I thought this was a super fun event to attend. My expectations were exceeded, and the price of $40 per ticket is a great deal for everything you are getting. Wonderful for a friends get together, date, or a solo experience.
