Drinks of the Yucatán featured at Chef Rick Bayless’ restaurant: “Frontera Cocina”

Chef Rick Bayless’ restaurant, Frontera Cocina, in Orlando Florida, is taking a full look at the new Taste of Yucatán menu as well as brand new items added to their regular menu.

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs™ is the newest Mexican restaurant by seven-time winner of the James Beard Foundation Award, Chef Rick Bayless.

If you’re planning to visit Disney World this summer, a couple of Yucatecan drinks at Frontera Cocina might be a good idea!

Agua de Chaya-Piña  – (no refills) $6.00

No refills on this one, that’s specified because it’s a non-alcoholic specialty drink. Anyway, it taste like a smoothie of sorts. Our server said there’s lot of health benefits to it, like lower cholesterol and not wanting to order a second. A few sips of the pulpy beverage and we were good.

Spicy Yucatán Margarita – Milagro blanco tequila, achiote cordial, Ancho Reyes liqueur, fresh lime-orange juice, habanero bitters – $13.00

There’s not a crazy amount of spice going on with this one, but it lingers on the back tongue. Expect a rather fragrant margarita with well-mixed ingredients. There’s not a lot to say here except that it’s a really solid option, a rare commodity among the ever-growing lineup of restaurants at Disney Springs.

La Peninsula – Montelobos joven mezcal, dragon fruit, Huana Mayan guanabana rum liqueur, agave nectar, ginger reduction – $15.00

It looks like Instagram-fodder and it’s exactly that because there’s literally no flavor present here. I mean, there’s some floral notes to the drink but it feels watered-down which is weird especially when the drink is such a bright color. The other options are far supreme.

Xtabentún – Honey-anise liqueur served on the rocks – $11.00

Okay, we weren’t sure what to expect here, but it’s a shot of the liquor over an ice ball. The liquor has a distinct honey smell and flavor to it, being rather thick due to the consistency of the alcohol. Xtabentún is a rather rare liquor that’s made with anise seed in the Yucatán region of Mexico. It’s a very unique, flavorful, and interesting alcohol that’s worth your time to indulge.Source: https://wdwnt.com/
