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 does a special Food & Wine Festival drink. They typically involve one of their frozen drinks + alcohol. If you want to make it a double, add $2 to the price. You’re guaranteed an extremely strong drink that tastes amazing.

Unfortunately, this Tropical Breeze of a frozen lemonade sadly didn’t quite live up to Joffrey’s usual standards. Whilst the flavors of coconut and pineapple are known as a perfect match, they were not complimented by the lemony taste of the beverage at all. In fact, the lemon flavor was somehow both too sour and too sweet at the same time, making for a slightly overpowering slush. This drink will still be refreshing on a hot day, but perhaps isn’t the most enjoyable item Joffrey’s has to offer at this festival.

This was absolutely delicious! It was icy and cold, perfect on a hot Florida day. It had a great lemonade/orange flavor. The orange alcohol taste compliments the lemonade. It’s detectable, but not harsh. This gets a big thumbs up from us!

*NEW* Port of Entry: Passion Flower: Frozen Passion Fruit and Tea infused with Lemon Vodka – $11.99

This drink divided our team. Some thought it had an awful chemical taste to it, but others thought this was quite lovely.

The blend of tea and passion fruit slush was very refreshing and the Absolut Citron floater created a welcome flavor melange.

It was not nearly as frozen and icy as we would have liked, but we did have this early in the day. It tasted like a funnier version of a strawberry smoothie, with the coconut syrup standing out a lot. It’s perfect for someone who likes fruity, sweet alcoholic drinks. It’s not the best Joffrey’s drink we’ve had during the festival, but it’s still very good. If it were a little icier, it would have been better, but all in all, we’d still recommend this one.
