Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is going on it's 11th year. This year's event has a rock 'n' roll vibe, with a jilted-lover icon named Sylvie.
 Last year was our first time experiencing HOS and it exceeded our expectations while giving HHN a run for it's money. I can't wait to see what they have in store for this year, and to see if we just had a "honeymoon period" with it last year being something new. NEW-Full review now posted below.

They both have a strong cherry flavor so we know they're using grenadine as a solid ingredient instead of the more typical splash for color in most cocktails. These are our best educated guesses on these recipes. (And I'm sure they're dang good guesses!)

My X:

  • 1 part white rum, 1 part Stoli Vanil vodka, 2 parts pineapple juice, 2 parts Sprite, 1/2 part grenadine
    Review - Very heavy on the pineapple flavor, sweet yet mildly tart. A nice fruity cocktail.

Sylvie's Rockin Punch:

  • 3 parts RockStar, 1 part vodka, 1/2 part grenadine
    Review - The tart, almost medicine-y flavor of the energy drink with a kick of vodka and extra sweetness of cherry.

PTTP is very pleased to see that mixed drinks are available at more locations this year - more options is always a good thing!
