Beverage New Orleans Square

Disneyland Mint Julep

Disneyland Mint Julep

One of the famous menu items at Disneyland is the Mint Julep available in New Orleans Square. The drink used to be bright green and full of Creme de Menthe syrup. This was never my favorite to be honest, but they’ve given the drink an update, and now I love it. The new version is a mint limeade/lemonade combination.  The drink is available at the Mint Julep Bar which is a walk up window next to the French Market. The window has a small menu, but this is the perfect spot to get your Mint Julep and Mickey Mouse Beignets.

This drink is easy to make. I used frozen limeade and lemonade, but if you have fresh fruit, that would be even better. First I made the mint simple syrup. This is easy to do on the stove top and the syrup will hold in the fridge for about a week. Next I made the two juices in separate pitchers. For each drink, combine the limeade, lemonade and mint simple syrup over crushed ice. My son drank this down quickly and said it was yummy. I also found it very refreshing and plan to have another as soon as my husband gets home tonight!

  1. […] at Cafe Orleans with my boyfriend, sharing pomme frites, a Monte Cristo, and an unhealthy amount of mint juleps. We’d watch Fantasmic and the Fireworks before heading home to a few chapters of a good book […]

  2. Susan says:

    Thank you for the memory. Do you use fresh lemons and limes or the concentrate?

    1. I use from concentrate but I think fresh would be just as good.

  3. Vanessa Rodriguez says:

    Did you use a homemade limeade and lemonade? Or was it from a concentrate?

    1. I used frozen from concentrate. I think homemade would work well.

  4. Peggy Brough says:

    Can I use mint extract in place of fresh mint leaves?

    1. I have not personally tried this but it seems like it might work. If you do try it, please leave a comment as to how well it worked. Thanks
