Pineapple Skewer with Tajin Seasoning – $4.75

The pineapple skewer is, straight-up, a piece of pineapple on a stick with Tajin. There’s not enough Tajin to make any noticeable flavor difference. It seems like they’re afraid to add too much in case guests can’t handle the Tajin flavor. Skip this.

Tangerine Soft-Serve Ice Cream – $6.00

We absolutely loved this! It’s incredibly refreshing, which is great in the Florida heat. The tangerine and vanilla are both prominent here, while the fruity flavor of the tangerine is fresh and citrusy. This is one we highly recommend!

Ice Cream Float: Tangerine Soft-Serve and Cream Soda – $6.25

Lavender Martini: Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka ($33/bottle) with Lavender and Lemon – $11.50

Poured over ice, this proved to be quite refreshing. Lemon and lavender come together in a very refreshing drink that we wanted more of after we finished it. The lemon gives it a flavor profile almost like a light lemonade. This is an easy cocktail to drink, making it a winner that we all loved.

Lexington Brewing Tangerine Cream Ale, Lexington, KY (5.5% ABV) – $11.25

From Lexington Brewing: “Kentucky Tangerine Cream Ale has a refreshing white head with a slight hop body with a luxurious mouthfeel. Moderate balance of maltiness and pleasantly sweet with notes of both vanilla and tangerine coming through clearly without being overpowering, allowing the vanilla and tangerine to shine.”

*NEW* Blake’s Hard Cider Co. Grand Cherry Hard Cider, Armada, MI (8.5% ABV) – $11.25

Blake’s Hard Cider Co. describes this cider as “Michigan Cherries, oranges, apples and oak on a marvelous scale. Grand doesn’t show up to the party, it arrives.”

*NEW* Southern Tier Brewing Co. Juice Jolt IPA, Lakewood, NY (6.8% ABV) – $11.25

From Southern Tier Brewing Co.: “Southern Tier’s JUICE JOLT is a blast of fruit juice flavor. This Extra Juicy IPA is bursting with tropical fruit flavor at an easy drinking 6.8% ABV. Juice Jolt delivers a punch of delicious fruit juice with an intense aroma to match. Caution this IPA is Too Juicy!”
