I'll be there next week, so I can check on that drink at Hearthstone and give you the name, ingredients, price, and picture!! I may be able to get the hot chocolate/schnapps picture, too. It was around $10 and the pomegranate one (which has a name like Antioxidizer or something stupid) was $8-10.

Somewhere I have pics of the port and chocolate tasting, but not sure where...
no pics of the Magicale but you can find one if you Google it. The bottle is interesting. The glass has lines that swirl downward. Ok, ok, I'll google it myself and see if I can find a picture



Here is a link to a thread that opens with pics of the port & cheese tasting http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=34800241

And here are a couple of shots of the $12 port & chocolate tasting attended by moi and my partner-in-crime, disneylvr2, who took the photos:





BTW, we got a LOT more than what was pictured, including 2 FULL glasses each of Magicale!!

Silly Funball indeed. You *know* I could have given you glow cubes

I am not good with prices. But I can tell you where and what

Dos Equis Amber from Cucina Cucamonga in DCA. We went here because the beer truck's register was broken But I'd never had Dos Equis (the most interesting man in the world! ) beer before and it was surprisingly tasty. Both DH and I agreed it was a winner.



Rita's blended margarita with salt from Rita's in DCA. My first time trying this out. It was tasty, but not very strong. Splash of tequila, indeed.



Yay, I know the price of these! $5 HAPPY HOUR margaritas at Tortilla Jo's, DtD. I love the glasses, and these babies are super potent

Where's the Alfresco Lounge? I hadn't heard about this addition. Did it replace something? Is it open all the time?


Oops, somehow I missed the answer to my own question. It's above the wine bar. Hopefully it'll be open this Thursday.

The glowtini looks amazing, I know my BF is going to tease me about it since he's going to know the main reason I want it is the ice cube. The drink sounds super yummy though.

Magicale is an Italian Brachetto imported from Piemonte, Northern Italy. It is a sweet sparkling dessert wine.

ALFRESCO LOUNGE:ok so i forgot to explain deeper, it's an extension of the WCT up above the wine bar! Before, when ever I bought drinks at that place, it would just say “wine country trattoria” on my receipt, but recently when I got my Key Lime martini, I noticed that the lounge now has a name! They have a full bar, large menu of cocktails (was just updated!) and 4 appetizers that are totally delicious! I have tried every single one! They also have a very extensive wine by the glass and bottle list, and I mean this list goes on for days, front and back of the menu!

Magicale:I love Magicale! It’s already been explained what it is.. but I first discovered it at the Food and Wine festival this last year! It’s my favorite now! It’s so worth the price per glass! It’s heaven in a champagne flute!

I'm not a huge drinker. I think I've had two adult beverages in one year. When I do indulge, it's Captin and Coke or a Bahama Momma. Can anyone suggest a tastey adult drink with rum in it? I'll need to know what it's called and where to get it.

Thanks all

Do you like Mojitos? That is made with mint, lime, simple syrup, rum, and soda water. Not sure how Disney makes them (I know there's no fresh mint) but they sell glow-jitos at the Tron Experience in DCA (ElecTRONica). I had some last Friday and they were yummy
