Best Cocktail at Disneyland Resort 2018
The Spanish word for daisy? Margarita. Tucked inside a replica of a vintage Hollywood movie palace lies your destination for silver screen glamour. (If you weren’t surrounded by people in mouse ears and flip-flops, you might expect to see Nick and Nora Charles stroll in.) The drink menu leans heavily toward classics, made with quality ingredients by well-trained bartenders. Snacks are hearty and interesting: We’re fans of the pork tostaditas and the butcher’s plate, featuring three types of salumi plus a generous assortment of cheese, dried fruit and nuts. Carthay Circle’s picture-perfect version of the Tequila Daisy includes a splash of crème de violette and a candied violet garnish. The signature Carthay Diamond Manhattan, made with Bulleit rye and Carpano Antica sweet vermouth, comes with a trio of Luxardo cherries and a gemstone-shaped ice cube from a custom copper ice-ball maker.
