Lobster Tail with Meyer Lemon Emulsion and Grilled Lemon – $8.25

Lobster Tail with Meyer Lemon Emulsion and Grilled Lemon – $8.25

For being one of the main dishes of the booth, the lobster is just fine. It isn’t anything special, really. It does come on a stick, so that makes it easier to eat, versus having to extract lobster meat while walking through a theme park.

Crispy Citrus Chicken with Orange Aïoli and Baby Greens – $5.75

Crispy Citrus Chicken with Orange Aïoli and Baby Greens – $5.75

For the price, you get a really thick cut of crispy chicken that’s incredibly well-prepared. The aioli is definitely on the citrusy side, but it’s understated. All in all, a very nice dish.

Orange Cream Shake in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (Non-Alcoholic) – $15.00

Orange Cream Slushy in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup – $

It looks like you’re consuming blended bird brains, but it’s actually just a delicious, orange citrus cream shake!

Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy – $6.75

Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy – $6.75

The wine slush is amazing. It’s just sweet enough, with creamy citrus flavors to make it pop. This is definitely a booth favorite. The non-alcoholic version that comes inside the Orange Bird Sipper is great, too.

Islamorada Beer Company Coconut Key Lime Ale, Fort Pierce, FL (5.0% ABV) – $4.50 (6 oz) & $8.50 (12 oz)

From Untappd: “Cruisin’ on idle, listening to some tunes, and sipping on this mild Coconut Key Lime Blonde Ale will get you on Island Time no matter your location. The smooth taste of Key Lime and Coconut will lower your latitude and bring you back to the Islands.”
