Verdict? Recommended

While we went to work on the Surfside Lounge’s Surfside Nachos and Baja California Caesar, we thought it might be nice to have a little something to wash the meal down with. A specialty drink, something other than water or Diet Coke.

Elaine selected the “Sparkling No-Jito.”

Turns out it’s actually pretty good.

This is a non-alcoholic cocktail. It’s composed of lime juice, agave nectar and soda water. It arrives with a sprig of mint, a slice of lime, and a straw.

Flavor-wise, it’s like a mint and lime 7-UP. It’s very refreshing. It feels like a small decadence, without a boozy undertow. It’s a tad on the sugary side.

The No-Jito is part of Disney’s standard cocktail menu. You can get it just about anywhere that also serves cocktails (e.g., Cove Bar, The Lounge At Steakhouse 55). There’s no need to make a special trip to Surfside Lounge.
