Bruce

Cocktail Description
Jose Cuervo Gold tequila, Grand Marnier, sour mix and a splash of orange juice. Served in a souvenir pilsner.

Review 3/2012
It only seemed appropriate to order-up the one named after the bar's new resident - Bruce the Shark. Bruce is a margarita with the added splash of some orange juice. Tasty, and the splash of OJ gives it a nice freshly squeezed fruit flavor. You can order Bruce without the souvenir cup to save a few bucks.

Duff Beer

Cocktail Description
Homer Simpson's lifeblood and reason for living. Duff Beer.

Review 5/2013
Duff is like your basic American lager. Light golden in color, subtle maltyness and very little hoppy aftertaste. Basic, crisp and easy to drink. Much like your basic Bud.

Duff Beer is specially brewed just for Universal Studios, by Florida Beer Company.

Duff Beer - Dry

Cocktail Description
Homer's favorite beer with a dark twist.

Review 5/2013
Now this Duff is much more interesting than the regular Duff and would likely be classified as a chocolate stout if we weren't in Springfield. If you're looking for a richly flavored dark, hoppier beer this one is right up your alley. Complex flavors of caramel with just a touch of chocolate and finishes with a sharp, dark hop bite.

Duff Beer - Lite

Cocktail Description
Homer's favorite beer in a lighter version. Hey, gotta save those calories for donuts!

Review 5/2013
Duff Lite is like your basic light American lager. Light golden in color, basic, crisp and easy to drink. Are we sounding like a broken record? Yes, it's very similar to their regular Duff, just a bit lighter on flavor and hops.

Earthquake Cocktail

Cocktail Description
Try measuring this one on the Richter scale. Jose Cuervo, Grand Marnier and sour mix.

Review 9/2013
Ok, so maybe this is just a margarita with a fancy name. Simple, basic margarita that heavily depends on who is pouring it whether or not it'll cause an earthquake with one sip...

Escape

Cocktail Description
Crown Royal, Captain Morgan, peach schnapps, splash of sour mix and Coke.

Review 3/2012
The mix of Crown, Captain, peach schnapps, sour and Coke makes for one interesting, savory yet sweet drink. The mellow flavors of Crown Royal always play nicely with a spiced rum and the peach schnapps add to the complexity and sweetness of this smooth cocktail.

Fisherman's Blast

Fisherman's Blast - LeftCocktail Description
Pinnacle Berry vodka, Black Raspberry Razzmatazz, Peach Schnapps, orange, pineapple and cranberry juices.

Review 7/2012
The Fisherman's Blast starts out like a typical fruity concoction, but then the tartness from the raspberry and cranberry hit you and give it a surprising sour punch finish. A nice change from the typical sweet tropical drinks, grab this one for a cocktail with a kick.

Frozen Mojito

Cocktail Description
Bacardi Limon, key lime juice, cane sugar and fresh mint.

Review 3/2012
Chez' take on the traditional mojito is prepared with fresh mint leaves just like the original but they're thrown in the blender with a mix of juices (supplied by Bacardi) that make the final product similar to a margarita. The drink is garnished with a healthy sprig of fresh mint. The tart lime margarita flavor is spiked with little chopped up bits of mint leaves to continually provide a great smooth mint flavor to your icey cold blended drink.

Mummy's Revenge

Cocktail Description
After drinking one of these you'll be crying for your mummy. Absolut vodka, Chambord, sweet & sour and triple sec.

Review 4/2013
After a ride on one of our favorite coasters, The Mummy, we decided it was only appropriate to finally try the drink named after it - Mummy's Revenge. This drink can be best described as "Chambordy goodness". Nice pours on the vodka & chambord with just a hint of the sweet & sour, this is one excellent cocktail. Considering Chambord is a rather expensive liquor, you definitely get your money's worth with this one.

Our best advice with these specialty drinks at Finnegan's is to go for the 14oz. non-souvenir $7.50 version - do you really want to be lugging around that giant fishbowl-style glass around the park?

Rum Neuralyzer

Cocktail Description
No flash of light will make you forget this fruity blend of Bacardi light rum, Myers's dark rum, blackberry and banana liqueur, all mixed together in a variety of juices.

Review 6/2013
Can't remember what you drank the night before? Blame it on the Rum Neuralyzer - this potent mix of light and dark rum with some fruit juices thrown in the mix make for one no-nonsense concoction. The blackberry & banana liqueur give it a fun "what's that" flavor to the typical fruit juices. Nothing too unique here, kinda your typical tropical drink, but it's good. Now if it only came with some cool black Ray Bans as a garnish....
