Brad chosen as lead mixologist for the recipe development, including Classic and New Tiki recipes, signature “Gorilla Grog” recipe mix for multiple drinks and Zero Proof offerings.
Disney recipe/strategy session at MixLab. Reviewed and tasted recipes, looked at glassware options and shared drink vessels, brainstormed drink names and ideas to tie them into the storyline and interactive atmosphere elements.
Brad researched the following:
Glassware recommendations, Custom Tiki Glass sources, recipe ingredient sourcing, Tiki samples, Bar décor, Presentation décor
Feb – assigned Disney imagineer to collaborate on the creative process
Discussed ‘secret’ drink idea. Looked into heat reveal paper
Menu was determined to be a stylized journey through the jungle cruise map (Trader Sam is the character with the shrunken heads during the ride).
After reviewing historical tiki menus styles, we determined the drink imagery should be sketched. We worked with WDI to get backgrounds of the Jungle Cruise to create the map. Each drink is basically a stop along the journey.
Story received from WDI – became first page in menu.
Photo shoot for sketch direction and for recipe guide on what finished drinks should look like.
Worked on several different menu cover looks/materials, implementing the existing global beverage book style.
