We’re big fans of secret menu things, maybe because it makes us feel all special and like we’re part of an elite Disney crowd.
Of course, we will TOTALLY share all those secrets with you, because, hey, we’re all friends here. That’s why we’ve told you about secret menu guacamole, Galaxy loaded fries, seven layer cake, and a pork belly burger! And now we’ve got another one to share, so lean in close because we’re going to whisper it.
So today, we were at the Restaurantosaurus Lounge and the bartender there, Jimmy, tipped us off on a new secret menu drink. Now Jimmy hasn’t steered us wrong on secret menu items, including the Raspberry Fizz and Tealasaurus he’s made for us. So we were all in when he made us a Cretaceous Cooler. And as you can see, it’s not on the menu here.
The Cretaceous Cooler is Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Blue Curacao, Midori, and Pineapple Juice. But here’s the thing — it isn’t really NEW because it used to be served as a pre-mixed drink (and it was a lot more yellow then). Here’s what it looked like way back in 2017. It’s kinda’ icky looking, right?
It looks WAY better now and more photogenic with that slice of pineapple on top. AND we’re here to tell you that it tastes way better, too, when it’s made by a bartender with fresh ingredients and a smile!
It still has that mix of sweet and tart flavors going on, though, so yes, we’re digging it! It is a pretty sweet drink and very tropical, but we think these flavors will please a lot of people. If you aren’t a fan of super sweet drinks or fruity flavors, you’ll probably want to order something else on the menu!
If you’re looking to get your hands on this drink, be sure to ask for it by name the next time you’re at Restaurantosaurus Lounge. It’s $12.
