Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar Drink Review

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is owned and operated by Jock Lindsey, the freelance pilot hired by Indiana Jones.

He’s days of flying and high octane adventures with the famed treasure hunter are over! He set up shop in Disney Springs and shows off trinkets and treasures from some of his adventures with Indy while serving people small bites and handcrafted drinks.

Do the drinks live up to the adventurous stories, or are they basic over sweetened pre-mix cocktails like you find at your local Applebees?

We reviewed 10 of Jock Lindsey’s signature cocktails and give you our take!

Jock Lindsey’s Signature Cocktails Ranked:

1.     The Mayor’s Reserve…………….. $17.50
Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Bols Blackberry Brandy, Simple Syrup, and Lemon Juice

This drink is the perfect marriage of sweet and smooth burn. The blackberry flavor really comes out in the brandy and the smooth bourbon rounds out the drink. PRO-TIP: We stole an orange garnish from another drink and rimmed the glass and then the drink was absolute perfection.

2.     Jock’s Old Fashioned……………. $16.50
Knob Creek Disney Select Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon, Cointreau Liqueur, Simple Syrup, Angostura Bitters, and Orange Bitters with a splash of Soda Water

You can’t go into Jock’s place and not appreciate his namesake drink! Knob Creek is already one of our favorite bourbons, but knowing that Jock is using the exclusive bourbon aged for Disney. It’s solid old fashioned with a hint of bubble from the soda water.

3.     Cool-Headed Monkey…………….$15.50
Starr African Rum, Van Der Hum Tangerine Liqueur, fresh Lime Juice, Watermelon, and Pineapple Juice

Sometimes you are looking for a nice light sweet drink to make you feel like you’re on vacation. We liked that this was a sweeter cocktail, but not that sickly sweet that leaves you feeling sticky.

4.     Hovito Mojito………..……………$15.50
Barson Quebranta Pisco, fresh Lime Juice, Mint, and Simple Syrup topped with Soda Water

Mojitos are just one of those drinks that just hit when the weather is hot and sticky. Let’s call it a cool breeze in a glass.

5.     Reggie’s Revenge………………$15.50
Florida Cane ‘Orlando Orange’ Vodka, Midori Melon Liqueur, White Cranberry Juice, and fresh Lime Juice

Attention sweet drink people! Reggie’s Revenge is a sweet drink that features natural sweetness from the fruits without syrups and extra sugars.

6.     Bedtime Story………………….$15.50
Absolut Mandrin Vodka, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur, Hibiscus Syrup, fresh Lemon Juice, and Iced Tea

We got some very sophisticated Arnold Palmer vibes on this drink. We liked the sweet meeting the tartness of the lemon for a nice balance to make way for the tea. It’s like our traditional Arnold Palmer just graduated from finishing school.

7.     Fountain of Youth………………$15.50
St. Augustine Florida Cane Vodka, Bols Blue Curaçao, White Cranberry Juice, and Sweet-and-Sour

We’ll be honest, the name alone got our attention! We have spent a lot more money in less fun ways to reclaim our youth, and this is our new favorite way. Something about a fun colored cocktail just makes you smile. Plus, did you really think you were going to get through a whole list without blue curacao?

8.     Wrong Island!………………..$14.50
Siesta Key Silver Rum, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, St. Augustine Gin, Tippler’s Orange Liqueur, and Sweet-and-Sour with a splash of Coca-Cola®

Oh, how we just love a good pun! This is Jock Lindsey’s take a on a long island iced tea. They use top shop liquors and quality ingredients, but no doubt, it’s the Coke that really brings it altogether.

9.     Shorty’s Singapore Sling…$15.50
Plymouth Gin, Heering Cherry Liqueur, Bénédictine, Cointreau, fresh Lime Juice, Pineapple Juice, and Grenadine

Have you ever tasted something that you look at and think that you shouldn’t like it, but then you just do? You can’t explain why… Yeah, that’s this drink for us. It’s sweet and has a lot of flavors going on, but they all just kind of work. And we don’t even like pineapple juice in drinks!

10.  Hail Marty………………$21.00
Colonel E.H. Taylor and Jr. Small Batch Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whisky Bottled in Bond served with an Ice Sphere

Hopefully you are able to pick yourself off of the floor after reading that price tag! Trust us – if you are a bourbon snob you have to try this. No frills. No sugar rims. No juices. No umbrellas. Just straight bourbon. With an ice sphere to keep it cold without diluting it. Sit back and sip away, my friend!

Over to You!
