#DisneySide @ Home Celebration - Mocktails

Disclosure:  I received free products from Disney Parks and MomSelect in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

Parties are hard work!! But they are also a labor of love, especially when Disney is involved.  I featured Disney Villains at our #DisneySide @Home Celebration and decided to make a signature mocktail for some of my favorite evil cohorts.



Queen Grimhilde's Poison Punch

  • Dip the rim of your glass in corn syrup, then in granulated sugar. (An after thought - dip the rim in grenadine to get a cool red sugar effect.)
  • Fill the glass half way with pineapple juice.
  • Fill almost to the top with gingerale.
  • Add a splash of grenadine - don't mix so that you get the red to orange color effect.
  • Garnish with a melon, pineapple, grape skewer.
  • Cocktail version - add a shot of your favorite white liquor (gin, vodka, rum) or Peach Schnapp's.

Maleficent's Dark Mocha Chiller
OK, I have to be honest here, I bought a bottle of Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino - but I do get credit for embellishment don't I??

  • Dip the rim of your glass in corn syrup, them sweetened, shredded coconut.
  • Swirl the inside of the glass with Hershey's Dark Chocolate Syrup.
  • Fill the glass with Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino.
  • Top with whipped cream (optional).
  • Cocktail version - use Kahula instead of the Hershey's Dark Chocolate Syrup.

Ursula's Poison Ink Elixir

  • Add 2 cups of water with 4 large plums and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a pan and cook over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Set aside to cool.
  • Dip the rim of your glass in corn syrup, then salt - fill with ice.
  • Put a splash of grenadine in the bottom of your glass.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the glass.
  • Place plum mixture into blender and puree.
  • Fill glass with plum mixture.
  • Garnish with lemon.
  • Cocktail version - add a shot of vodka, rum or cognac.


Mother Gothel's Youthful Glow Mocktail

  • Dip the rim of your glass in corn syrup, then in granulated sugar.
  • Fill the glass half way with white grape and peach juice cocktail.
  • Add a splash of pineapple juice.
  • Fill glass with lemon lime soda.
  • Garnish with a cherry, pineapple and melon skewer.
  • Cocktail - add a shot of rum, vodka or Peach Schnapp's.
Now that you have seen my devilish concontions I would love to know, which Disney character would you create a signature drink for? Now, give us a recipe.

Have a Magically Villaineous Day!!

  2. I would definitely go with Grimhilde's or Mother Gothel's drink! I'm not a coffee/ mocha fan or a plum fan! If I created a drink I'd have to go with something strawberry based- maybe for the Queen of Hearts!

    2. I like that idea Beth. Maybe a pina colado with dripping strawberry sauce. Something like trying to paint over the WHITE roses.

    1. It was fun, afterwards you always think of ways you could have made it better - like the grenadine to make the sugar look like blood. Cannot wait to see your party!!

  5. Those drinks are to die for! I love all the creativity with the glasses too. I made a Golden Mickey punch for ours, but it was not as fancy as your concoctions. Great job!
