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!

We want to hear from you! Tell us in the comments – Are you team sweet drinks or team whiskey drinks?

Thanks for stopping by the Disney Drink Blog,

Cheers!

Finding the Best Old Fashioned at Walt Disney World

Who knew that the most magical place on earth could also be a great place for some bourbon and bourbon-based cocktails!

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is home to almost 150 bars in the theme parks, resort hotels, and Disney Springs, and we’re here to tell you that it’s not all super sweet tropical drinks with pineapple, guava, and umbrellas (though they have a lot of those too if you’re into that).

We all know that the festivals in the World Showcase a EPCOT can create some outstanding cocktails, but we focused solely on Old Fashioneds you can get any time of the year.

We worked our way through Walt Disney World to find you the top 10 best places to get a quality Old Fashion –

10. Ale & Compass Restaurant

Maple Old Fashioned – $14.50
Old Forester Bourbon, maple syrup, orange juice, and angostura bitters

Take in the New England vibes at the Ale & Compass at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort to start our list. The maple twist on this Old Fashioned adds the perfect amount of sweetness to warm the soul, and the orange juice is a new take to replace the orange peel. Does this mean it’s not appropriate to enjoy at breakfast time, too?

9. Space 220 Restaurant

Orion Old Fashion – $17
Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Grand Marnier, Chocolate Bitters

Orion Old Fashion

Go up into space but stay grounded with a classic bourbon-based cocktail. The Grand Marnier creates a sweet element that really elevates the drink to the cosmos. We’re not sure how chocolate bitters come into play, but we’re here for it.

Bonus – Space 220 Regular Old Fashion by Bartender Chris

8. City Works Eatery & Pour House

Burnt Orange Old Fashioned – $15
Devil’s River Rye, Cointreau, charred syrup, orange bitters
You can enjoy this great classic Old Fashioned without a park ticket right in Disney Springs! City Works Eatery & Pour House is most known for their expansive beer menu, but bourbon lovers shouldn’t just walk by! This restaurant likes to feature bourbon flights intermittently through the year.

7. Nomad Lounge

Tempting Tigress – $16.50
Russell’s Reserve 10yr Bourbon, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, tamarind syrup, lime juice

Nomad Lounge is our place to escape at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and grab a drink. You will completely forget that you are in a theme park while you sip high-end cocktails on the veranda watching the flotillas. You can even feel good about ordering at the Nomad Lounge because they donate a portion of their profits to conservation funds.

6. Enchanted Rose Lounge

Seasonal Old Fashioned – $26
Widow Jane 10 yr straight bourbon whiskey, house-made seasonal syrup and bitters (Fall)

Seasonal Old Fashion – Fall

The Enchanted Rose is a beautiful themed lounge to Beauty and the Beast. The cocktails are some of the most refined in all of Walt Disney World, with high price tags to match. What we love about the Old Fashioneds here is that they can be different every time. We have seen classic versions with high quality ingredients, and also versions with blood orange syrups or rosemary cranberry syrups. Enjoy and opulent cocktail in an elegant atmosphere with this drink.

Seasonal Old Fashion – Winter

5. California Grill

Sonoma Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned – $18.50
Sonoma Distilling Co. Bourbon, vanilla maple syrup, angostura bitters and luxardo gourmet maraschino cherries with with an orange twist

Bourbon lovers rejoice! Don’t stop at this delicious elevated classic, be sure to enjoy the single pours of their extensive bourbon lists. Did you know that Knob Creek makes a custom bourbon just for Disney? Be sure to check it out and these other high quality bourbons:

  • Basil Hayden Kentucky Straight Bourbon
  • Labrot & Graham “Woodford Reserve” Distillers Select
  • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch
  • Knob Creek Disney Select Small Batch
  • Booker Noe Barrel-Strength
  • Widow Jane 10 Yr Straight Bourbon
  • Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon
  • Eagle Rare 10  Yr Bourbon

4. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Jock’s Old Fashioned – $16.50
Knob Creek Disney Select Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon, Cointreau Liqueur, simple syrup, angostura bitters, orange bitters, splash of soda water

There are no dainty cocktail umbrellas on any of these Indiana Jones themed cocktails! Every libation features either bourbon, vodka, or gin and is guaranteed to put hair on your chest and a smile on your face. Don’t forget to pair your cocktail with one of the best charcuterie boards on property!

3. The Polite Pig

Sweet Tea Old Fashioned – $12
Four Roses Bourbon, sweet tea syrup, bitters

The Polite Pig in Disney Springs is a fantastic barbeque joint that also features a full bourbon bar. Yes, please. After enjoying a sweet southern twist on an old fashioned, invite a few friends to enjoy one of the Polite Pigs whiskey flights. Each flight contains a 1 oz. pour of 3 different whiskeys to match a theme.

  • Polite Flight (Four Roses Small Batch, Basil Hayden, Eagle Rare) – $21
  • Florida Flight (Timber Creek Florida Single Malt Whiskey, St.Augustine Florida Straight Bourbon, Palm Ridge Reserve) – $24
  • Rye Flight (Bulleit 95 Rye, Michter’s Straight Rye Single Barrel, Whistlepig 10yr Private Barrel) – $25
  • Refined Flight (Woodford Reserve, Calumet Farm, Horse Soldier Small Batch) – $26

2. Sebastian’s Bistro

Create Your Own Rum Old Fashioned – $15
This menu features a fun choose-your-own adventure scenario! This is an Old Fashioned with a Caribbean twist using rum instead of bourbon, and is the most customizable Old Fashioned we have ever seen. You choose your rum, syrup, and even your bitters.

Choose from 6 different Caribbean rums, 4 different syrups including agave, orange tangerine, pure cane sugar, and maple, and 9 different bitters including, angostura, angostura orange, black walnut, cardamom, chocolate, grapefruit, peychaud’s, pimento, and rhubarb.

1.   The Edison

The Edison – $17
Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Belle de Brillet Pear Brandy, Lemon Juice, Honey Cordial

When you peruse the Fashionably Old Corner of the menu you will find a tried and true Old Fashioned, but we had to check out The Edison’s signature cocktail with the same name, and the high quality ingredients just put this one on top. The Edison cocktail is like the Old Fashioned’s rich uncle – classy, strong, smooth, and rich.

Plus, after 9:00 PM you can sip and enjoy a live Burlesque show. Now, that’s how you do Disney.

Over to You!

Oga’s Cantina Review at Batuu East and West

Oga's Cantina Review at Batu East and West

The Disney Drink Blog used hyperdrive to visit Oga’s Cantina at Batuu West and then in the same week Batuu East.

For the uninitiated, Oga’s Cantina is the new Star Wars Themed Bar at Disneyland Park in California and Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Updated September 2020 – Based on our Aug 2020 visit, there are some changes due to current health concerns! So see our new post for these updates.

Batuu is the name of the town represented in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disney parks.

We really enjoyed trying these new, highly themed bars on both coasts. In this post we’ll cover the atmosphere, drinks, and note any differences.
