Polynesian resort drinks!

I'll probably only have the chance to try one, so which is the best?

The Lapu Lapu of course looks awesome merely because it comes in a pineapple, but Party Through the Parks says the Backscratcher is the clear winner on taste.

Cast your vote for one of the Tambu Lounge's 4 signature mixed drinks!

We had both a couple of weeks ago, and the primary difference between the Lapu and the BS was that the BS seemed MUCH stronger. In fact, friend and I were sent to the pool bar to get LL's for our wives, only to discover that although they make them there, they don't serve them in the pineapples....what's the point?! Ha! So we went inside to Tambu to get them. The novelty of getting an actual backscratcher in a drink is greatly diminished, given that there are no Poly markings anywhere on it (which would make it a much cooler souvenir). Same is true for the pina colada from Tambu, served in a cool tiki glass, but with no emblem like there used to be. Still good, and I still bought one at the gift shop a while ago, but if they would go back to putting "Polynesian Village/Resort" on the tiki glasses, I'd certainly buy another. (And isn't the first question of drink-buying always whether there is a cool souvenir associated with it?!)

Also discovered once back at the pool that they were making an Uncle Sam, which was a red, white and blue concoction (it happened to be July 4, so I don't know if this is something they'll do at other times). Seemed to be made of raspberry puree on the bottom...pina colada mix in the middle and some blue caracao floating on the top, all served in a souvenir Poly hurricane glass. Basically a de-constructed pina colava with a hit of blue on top. Quite tasty, and I felt like we were supporting America in the process!

My favorite which actually can be found almost anywhere is the Pina Colava (not be confused with pina colada) My Dh LOVES the Lapu Lapu but its very strong

Zombie, not on the list, is the best alcohol value at the Poly.

The Uncle Sam was only for the holiday. It was strawberry colada, pina colada and blue Curacao. It was pretty tho and came with the sparkler straw

As far as votes go the Lapu Lapu is the clear winner so far. Anyone else care to weigh in?

I didn't see it on the bar menu or the standard Disney cocktail menu. Is it the same as described here?

If so that sounds pretty darn delicious.
