Disney Distilled Episode #7

Disney Distilled has returned from a trek around Disney’s world with news from far off lands- and a bit of a hangover!

This episode’s Featured Drink is: The Pear Martini (formerly) from Walt Disney World (recipe from PartyThroughTheParks.com)

Pear Martini
The Pear Martini – now a part of Yesterland’s bar menu.


1 ounce Hendrick’s Gin
1 ounce Glenfiddich 12yr
1 ounce Monin Pear Syrup
1 Simple Syrup made with Agave Nectar
0.5 Lemon Juice


Pour ingredients over ice in a shaker and add the juice from half a lemon. Shake, strain and serve in a martini glass.

This time, our good friend Ben Paddon from Jump Leads joins us while we drink and discuss lots of Disney news:

The passing of actor Dean Jones, a new Mary Poppins in the wind, moving the Pope House, much news of construction for Star Wars Land, the Seasons of the Force dates and scheduled events, the Jungle Cruise Sunrise Safari, Dr. Facilier’s Blue Bayou dinner event, saying goodbye to Aladdin at the Hyperion Theater, saying “aloha” to Mahaloween at Trader Sam’s, yet another Star Wars race event at WDW, the Ferrytale Wishes Dessert Cruise coming to Seven Seas Lagoon, the Osborne Family X-mas lights leaving DHS, the rise and fall of Disney dining assistance services, a new hotel for Tokyo Disney,  clearer skies for Shanghai Disneyland, closings at Universal Studios Orlando, and what it takes to get a lifetime pass to Legoland.
