MegLovin' Monday

And I'm Back!

I needed to relax a little and take some time off. I am so so sorry! This holiday has been more than I could have anticipated.

So to get back to regularly scheduled posts here is the first MegLovin' Monday of 2014!

I met this gorgeous bubbly gal through twitter and by 2 strokes of luck we both got into the Wine and Dine Meet Up. She is beautiful inside and out and is someone I consider myself lucky to have met.

Show some MegLovin' to Adrienne blogging over at Running of Adge!

Let's get real for a second. 

You just ran 3.1, 6.2, 13.1 26.2 OR you spectated someone you love do those. The first (okay maybe, second) thing your body needs, wants, DESERVES is a good drink to celebrate. Now, if you know me, and well I hope you should want to. I love a good beverage, if it's adult it's even better!

I think the best way to break down your numerous options is to break them into categories.

Resorts, Parks and Downtown Disney

Lets start with the resorts.

Boardwalk Inn and Villas

There are a few options at Disney's Boardwalk. 
Jellyrolls, although not open directly after the morning races is a blast of a place to celebrate at. 
Jellyrolls-32 oz Sex on the Beach

Kouzzina at breakfast is a dream come true. While you are snacking on Golden Waffles you can sip this beauty.
Kouzzina- Sunrise Sangria

At night Boardwalk Joe's is open for business, you should consider yourself lucky enough to have the opportunity to taste one of the most delicious margaritas on property.

Boardwalk Joe's - Wildberry Margarita

Animal Kingdom Lodge

Although I personally opt for a margarita on the rocks this one from Sanaa happens to hit the spot as a frozen drink.
Sanaa- Mango Margarita



San Angel Inn - Classic Margarita

La Cava del Tequila- Passion Fruit Margarita

Japan Sake Bar

France- Pommegrante Kir

American Adventure- Angry Orchard (Food and Wine Festival)

MGM (yup, I said it)

One of my new favorite places is the Brown Derby Lounge, it is adorable and quaint and the perfect spot to get out of the sun. If you think one margarita is good, three are better!
Brown Derby Lounge- Citizen's Take Flight

Before the opening of the Brown Derby Lounge, the Tune in Lounge attached to 50's Prime Time Cafe was one of the best places to get a drink. This one is under 'Dad's Cocktails' on the menu.
Tune In Lounge- Patron Platinum Margarita

Animal Kingdom

The bar here is somewhat hidden and can get very busy, if you get lucky and there is a seat open, grab it, the bartenders are so much fun to talk to.
Dawa Bar- African Margarita

When I said this drink is a hidden gem, it could not be more serious. On your way to Asia there is a small stand on the left. GET THIS.
Asia- Island Margarita

Downtown Disney

Everyone is Irish when they go to Raglan Road, not in the mood for Guinness? This is the perfect option for non-beer drinkers.
Raglan Road- Magner's Hard Cider

I hope you are excited for your journey towards runDisney bling and your post race cocktail. This is only a small sampling of the options available on Disney property. Remember to always drink responsibly and NEVER ever drive after you have drank, transportation is always available.

Keep hopping along and maybe I'll see you at Marathon Weekend 2014!
