There are few places that I’d rather spend a summer evening than on a cushy couch under the fans on the deck of Nomad Lounge in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
And my cocktail of choice there this year? The Snow Leopard Salvation. A not overly sweet, summery concoction that cuts the heat and humidity just right.
That said – I can’t always get there. And I don’t always want to pay Disney prices for a drink. Not to mention that the whole “calories don’t count in Disney” thing stops being true when you live a mile from property.
Enter – my own, wallet and bikini friendly version of the drink. And you won’t even need to drive all the way to Animal Kingdom to get it.
It couldn’t be easier or taste better. About 6 ounces of diet ginger beer, the juice of one lime, 2 or so ounces of pear vodka, and some muddled mint leaves – along with a spring of mint and a slice of lime for garnish if you’re going to drink it around polite company. 😉
Bottoms up, my friends!! Mix one up this weekend and tell me what you think!
