Isla Nu-Bar Recipes from Universal Studios Hollywood

Hollywood Studios Jurassic Park Tiki bar

While Universal CityWalk is open on a limited basis, the famed Universal Studios Hollywood, which includes one of the oldest and most famous Hollywood film studios, remains closed. Only last July the reimagined Jurassic World—The Ride opened. Check out The Making of Jurassic World—The Ride here. And for those a little timid to face the dinosaurs, Universal Studios also opened the walk-up Isla Nu-Bar.

The thatched-roof bar serves a variety of island-inspired cocktails, and the obligatory collectible tiki mugs are, of course, on sale. For now, though, we have to be creative, and what would be better than trying two original recipes from the Isla Nu-Bar? Show us your creativity. We would love to see your pictures!
