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!
