Okay let’s talk Joffrey’s stands in Epcot. There are FOUR total, three around World Showcase and one in Future World near the Ooga Chaka, erm Universe of Energy, erm Innoventions, erm… Future World East. Yeah, over there, all alone right now. Each of these stands do a special Food & Wine Festival drink, this year each for $9.99. They typically involve one of their frozen drinks + alcohol. If you want to make it a double, add $2. You’re guaranteed an extremely strong drink that tastes amazing.
Fire and Ice: Frozen Lemon with Fireball Cinnamon Whisky – $9.99 (The American Adventure)
They’re not joking: the refreshing lemonade is cut with the cinnamon whisky quite well. If you like lemonade and it’s hot out (which it will be), you should grab one of these.
Riviera Sunrise: Frozen Orange Pineapple with Grand Marnier – $9.99 (Canada)
Double-up on that Grand Marnier for an extra $2, it’s worth it. This drink reminds us a lot of the famous POG (passionfruit, orange, guava) juice located at numerous locations across property. We know from past experience that adding Grand Marnier to the mix makes for one tasty beverage and this being a frozen version of that is no exception. It’s a little too sweet though.
You can turn your goose Mexican if you ask nicely. I mean they’ll add tequila instead of vodka. We opted for tequila because Mexico was upcoming for us and we weren’t confident we’d get our tequila fill there (spoilers: we didn’t). Anyway, this is a really cold and berry-forward drink that’s only made better with the added alcohol. You’ll need to be a fan of frozen berry drinks to enjoy this, obviously.
Fast Lane: Frozen Cappuccino with Brown Jug Bourbon Cream – $9.99 (Future World East)
This one is our personal favorite. I mean they’re all great in their own ways, but call us crazy, we’re partial to coffee drinks from the coffee kiosks. The bourbon cream adds another level to the frozen cappuccino that’s makes a stellar caffeine cocktail. Recommended, and double up on the bourbon for that extra $2, to quote Sherrie from the original Test Track, “you’ll be glad you did.”
