Disney Distilled Episode #11

(Since we were traveling for this episode, the audio is a bit on the rough side- our travel equipment is a bit rough around the edges. Thanks for understanding!)

Greetings Distillers! Salutations and welcome back to Disney Distilled!

For Episode #11, we took a road trip to the City By The Bay- San Francisco- and met up with Guest-Host Lee Presson, Disney fanatic and musical maestro of Lee Presson and the Nails!

This episode, we take a trip away from the usual Disney menu and join Lee  to enjoy a refreshing Rye Press (get it?)

Rye Press
The simple, but delicious Rye Press! Perfect for a getaway weekend!


Rye Whiskey

Soda Water

Ginger Ale

Combine ingredients in glass with ice, stir. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with cherries.

Lee is a Bay area local who not only digs Disney in a big way, but is also the leader of the popping-est swing band you’ll ever set ears on! A brief sample of their style is featured in this very episode! (A Disney staple, of course!) Be sure to check out their website, and follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr to find out where the Nails might be showing up next!

This episode’s news ranges from the California of Walt’s dreams to the future of the original theme park to the far reaches of the Wizarding World!

We even discuss how you can get the scents of Disney in your own home! Wow!

Disney Distilled Episode #4

Welcome back to Disney Distilled, where we are proud to drunkenly bring you stories from around the world of Disney!

This episode’s Featured Drink is: Carthay Diamond Manhattan (60th Anniversary Cocktail) from the Carthay Circle Lounge in Disney California Adventure

Two nearly perfect Carthay Diamond Manhattans


2 1/2 oz Bulleit Rye Small Batch American Whiskey
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
1 dash of Angostura Bitters
Luxardo Gourmet Maraschino Cherries
served with a Diamond shaped Ice, made from locally sourced Purified Water

Combine the vermouth, bourbon whiskey, and bitters with 2 – 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits and cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry.

This time we discuss a range of Disney topics: such as the now-defunct Tron 3 and newly announced Maleficent sequel,  documentaries about Uncle Walt himself, comics that spark the Imagination, details on the Frozen attraction, an all new bar experience, and even some more Universal news!
