If Orlando had its own signature cocktails, what would they be?
By Alex Galbraith
Orlando has more than its fair share of places to get a drink, but little in the way of a signature drink. A group of clever Redditors set out to found inspiration in the bottom of an overpriced glass and came up with their own signature drinks for various parts of the City Beautiful. Check out a few of our favorites below:
a double pour old fashioned, served in a travel Yeti; bartender deadpans Buddy Dyer tram speech while stirring - u/slow_drain
Basically a long island tea, served in the right-hand mirror housing from a Nissan Altima - u/BuckClydesdale
Blue Curaçao poured down the sides of the glass, a bit of white rum, filled with a bit of some kind of citrus juice that runs out halfway through pouring and the bartender disappears into the back to get more and never comes back - u/akrasia85
In a souvenir glass too tall for a cabinet so you have to display it out in the open - u/APuckerLipsNow
it’s the same drink [as the I-4] but costs more - u/LogsGetBuiltToo
Bartender reaches for the nearest liquor but then swerves to a random bottle at the other end of the bar, knocking over everything else in the process.
Capped off by the bartender giving you a dirty look and acting like you’re the reason they messed up - u/FibroMyAlgae
City of Orlando
Grey goose and pond water on the rocks - u/ClassActionFart
The UCF (You Can’t Finish):
Any of those giant cocktails that you get in South beach with two bottles of Corona flipped inside - u/Friendly_Vacation680
