What do you get when you cross a thirsty zebra with a bottle of rum? Yule find out!

This is the sort of gleeful schtick you’ll find at Trader Sam’s – Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel – last week, we posted news about the holiday-themed fun at the lounge and some readers lamented that they can’t get there before the drinks and décor disappear in January.

So we’re sharing two of their cocktail recipes – sip in the spirit of Trader Sam’s!

    It would be great to see some special drinks at Halloween next year too! Boy, would be awesome to see a Trader Sam’s location at The Polynesian or at some other location at WDW. How about a whole pavilion at Epcot?
