Summer Drinks and Late Night Bites at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs

I always enjoy exploring Disney Springs. As a local, I find it a fun place as a local to drink, eat, play and shop.

Disney can get pricey when you're a local. I'm always looking for places I can get a good bang for my buck. I was happy to hear that Morimoto Asia was rolling out a sweet deal with their new summer cocktail menu and late night bite menu for their Forbidden Lounge.

I was invited to sample the seasonal cocktails and bites.

Theses cocktails were concocted by the bartenders. There was a lot of passion put into these drinks๐Ÿน

There are five Summer Cocktails on the menu. These drinks are $14, but if you swing by the Forbidden Lounge after 10 pm you can score then for just $8.

Watermelon Soyokaze ~ Kunsei Smoked Coconut
Melon Boba (non-alcoholic)
Kyuuri Gin Blossom Martini ~ Yuzu Sidecar ~ Tequila and Tonic

I sampled all the drinks, I didn't go crazy! The Melon Boba is a delicious non-alcoholic drink with the Boba. My favorite cocktail was the Kunsei. I liked it because it was a bit different with the smoked coconut. There's tequila, rum, almond syrup, lemon and honey syrup with the coconut flakes on top.

The Watermelon Soyokaze is a refreshing summer drink with rum, watermelon juice, fresh lime, Midori and a splash of cranberry.๐Ÿ‰

There is a nice variety in all of the drinks. There is sure to be one that stands out for you. My friends and I all picked different drinks that were our favorite.

Let me tell you, this late night bite menu is delicious! It is offered in the Forbidden Lounge upstairs after 10 pm. The late night bites are all priced at $8

There are eight items on the late night menu. I sampled most of them and I enjoyed them all very much.

I thought the peppers might be hot, but they weren't for me. the wasabi creme fraiche and yuzu salt balanced it out.

I was most excited to try the Shrimp Chips and Dip. They are light and airy and the dipping sauces make for a fun twist on the "usual" chips and dip. My favorite combo was with the spicy mayo.

The grilled meats were amazing! I could've eaten the Miso Marinated Black Cod (1) all night! The Chicken Yakitori (2)  and Pork Skirt Steak (1) were equally as delicious.

While the food and drinks were great I appreciated how warm and engaging the staff was. I would be happy to sit at the bar in the Forbidden Lounge and enjoy a drink and take in the view of the restaurant. It's quite a visual delight✨

You'll be happy with the drinks and bites and having extra money to spend shopping at Disney Springs too is always nice!๐Ÿ˜Š
