REVIEW: New Gluten Free Cocktail Options in Jurassic Park at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The Watering Hole in Jurassic Park is one of our all time favorite bars at Universal Orlando Resort, and now it’s gotten even better with the addition of two gluten free cocktail options!

We never pass up on a chance to grab a drink at the Watering Hole, so now seems like the perfect time to give them a try! If you’re gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant, look no further than these brand new drinks in Jurassic Park.

There are two options to choose from: Nectarine Spritzer or Watermelon Lemonade.

If you’re ordering a gluten free beverage, the bar tenders have designated shakers and shot measurements for mixing your drink. This greatly reduces the risk of cross contamination.

Nectarine Spritzer Gluten Free Cocktail –$15.50

44 North Nectarine Vodka combined with San Pellegrino Sparkling Mineral Water, Fresh Mint, and a Splash of Lemon

Wow, what an absolutely delicious drink. It’s light, crisp, and refreshing. The drink is very smooth and “clean”, with a hint of that citrus/nectarine flavor. If you aren’t a fan of overly sweet or sugary drinks, this is the way to go! Each sip packed a punch, but you won’t notice it. Easy sipping and perfectly relaxing. Even if you aren’t looking for a gluten free option, this is absolutely fantastic.

Watermelon Lemonade Gluten Free Cocktail – $15.50

44 North Watermelon, Lemon Juice, Watermelon Syrup, and Fresh Mint

This is the sweeter of the two drinks, but it’s still light. It tasted like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. It’s not sugary, but the tartness and sweetness is still there, despite still being very light and crisp. These drinks are both so refreshing and will definitely get you buzzed. Either of these would be a delightful way to enjoy an alcoholic drink in the Florida heat.

Honestly, these might be my two new go-to drinks at the Watering Hole. It’s exciting to see Universal Orlando adding gluten free drinks, vegan dishes, and a wider variety of options for those with dietary restrictions.
