Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs is celebrating National Irish Coffee Day (January 25th, 2022) with a special offer, “You buy the coffee, the whiskey is on us!”. We were invited out to Raglan Road last week for an event that included an Irish Coffee demonstration as well as trying food items that may end up on the Raglan Road menu.
Michael at Raglan Road demonstrated making an Irish coffee.
At Raglan Road, three coffee-based cocktails are served daily: the Traditional Irish, a mix of coffee, whiskey, sugar and cream; the Iced Irish, Bailey’s Salted Caramel with iced coffee, Paddy’s Irish Whiskey, and butterscotch schnapps topped with whipped cream; and the Irish Espresso Martini, Slane Irish Whiskey, Miami club coffee liqueur, Guinness simple syrup, and fresh espresso.
Raglan Road Director of Operations Sean Griffin invites guests to raise a glass to the national holiday wake-up call. “If coffee and whiskey both deserve their own holiday, then Irish Coffee deserves a bigger one,” he says. “Alex Levine put it best when he said, ‘Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat.’”
Here is a look at the menu we were served. By far, the Smoked Pulled Brisket led the way in being the favorite at our table.
The items from the menu were displayed on platters, including the brisket (top left).
This is a closer look at the brisket.
We tried the Traditional Irish with our food samples.
Raglan Road features traditional Irish dishes and new creations with a Celtic twist. The restaurant’s warm interior of aged walnut and mahogany woods from old Irish bars and churches was built in Ireland and shipped to Orlando. Live entertainment nightly and during weekend brunch features Irish house bands and the Raglan Road Irish Dancers. The pub’s all-day menu is served from 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 10 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Sat.-Sun. Weekend Rollicking Raglan Brunch runs from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
