CityWalk Universal Orlando: 5 Signature Cocktails To Try

CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort is a vibrant hot spot day or night. With its close proximity to the theme parks, you can take a break and enjoy a signature cocktail at lunch, or visit for dinner after the parks close. I wouldn’t suggest trying these cocktails in the same day, they certainly pack a punch!

I won’t lie, I love a good cocktail when I am on vacation, and  CityWalk makes some of the best in Orlando. After doing some research I found what I believe are the best cocktails. Go ahead and give them a try on your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation. You can thank me later.

CityWalk Signature Cocktails

Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food – The Antorita

First stop is Antojitos, the delicious and eclectic Mexican restaurant with killer esquites asados. The keyword here? Mexican. The Antorita, the Antojitos take on the classic margarita – with a couple twists.

Ingredients: Corazon Tequila, Cointreau Triple Sec, Gran Gala Orange-flavored Brandy, Agave Nector, Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice, Garnished with Salt, Lime Wedge and Orange Wheel

Vivo Italian KitchenThe Barrel Aged

The garnish—an orange peel studded with cloves, provides depth to the cocktail that is equal parts perplexing and delicious. Coupled with the in-house barrel-aged Old Forester, this Vivo-inspired homage to the Manhattan would make the perfect digestif.

Ingredients: House-aged Old Forester Bourbon, Tuaca Vanilla Citrus Liqueur, Sweet Vermouth, Simple Syrup, Garnished with a Clove-studded Orange Peel

The CowfishThe Ruby Panther

Nothing can beat this drink on a hot summer day. It’s cold and refreshing and just screams “I’m on vacation”.

Ingredients: Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka (Gluten-free), Simple Syrup, Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice, Pink Lemonade, Six (6) Muddled Raspberries, Garnished with a Lime Wheel and Raspberries

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.The Bubba’s Blue Hawaiian

Let me spell out a highly effective formula for ordering a delicious specialty cocktail.

Is the establishment named after a person? Is there also a drink on the menu named after that person? Then order it. This was The Bubba’s Blue Hawaiian. And with four different liquors, it packed the punch of a Long Island Iced Tea with the attitude of a guy who lives on a sailboat. It’s a laidback party in a glass (even in a specialty glass, for just a few bucks more).

Ingredients: Vodka, Rum, Gin, Blue Curacao, Pineapple Juice, Topped with Sprite, Garnished with a Lemon Wedge

Pat O’Brien’sThe Hurricane

Almost anyone who’s patronized a Pat O’s, either in Orlando or New Orleans, has stared down the memory eraser known as The Hurricane.

Part Bacardi 151 rum, part proprietary Pat O’s hurricane mix—this is the friend you invite to the party if you really want it to pop off. Directions: sip slowly and prepare to dance.

Ingredients: Bacardi 151 Rum, Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Mix (think rum punch)
