Shimmering Strawberry Soft-serve in a Waffle Cone – $5.25

Shimmering Strawberry Soft-serve in a Waffle Cone – $5.25

The strawberry soft serve was… strawberry soft serve. The cone was covered in pink frosting with pearlescent sprinkles for the shimmer in “shimmering”. It was very soft soft-serve and it melted into soup extremely quickly, so be ready for a bit of a mess.

Banana Bread with Mixed Berry Compote – $4.50

Banana Bread with Mixed Berry Compote – $4.50

This banana bread was very good. We’re glad to see so many solid plant-based options this year. The cake had an excellent banana flavor without tasting artificial. The consistency was great as it was firm, but not dense. The berry compote tasted freshly-made and not from a can. There was a good amount of berry compote to go around the bread, too. And the fresh whipped cream tied it together nicely. We only wish the portion had been a little bigger.

Tropical Mimosa with Sparkling Wine and Passion Fruit, Orange and Guava Juices – $6.25

Tropical Mimosa with Sparkling Wine and Passion Fruit, Orange and Guava Juices – $6.25

As you can tell from the picture this one is rather pulpy. While there’s some good flavors going on this tasted too much like a basic orange juice and champagne mimosa to be anything really special. There’s better options at this booth.

Key Lime Mimosa with Key Lime Sparkling Wine and Cranberry Juice – $6.25

Key Lime Mimosa with Key Lime Sparkling Wine and Cranberry Juice – $6.25

They’re using white cranberry juice in this mixture to keep the overall clear profile of the drink. This one is rather tart with a distinct key lime flavor that overpowers any of the potential cranberry taste. It tastes more like just the key lime sparkling wine that we’ve seen at past festivals which makes sense: it’s the same wine. This isn’t a bad price for the flute, all things considered.

Blood Orange Mimosa with Sparkling Wine and Blood Orange Juice – $6.25

Blood Orange Mimosa with Sparkling Wine and Blood Orange Juice – $6.25

Can you feel the pulp tonight… floating in your drink? There’s even more pulp in this one than the tropical mimosa, but this one works ten times better. The blood orange flavor is prominent and not overbearing, just tart enough to smack your lips together. Definitely the smartest option at the mimosa bar.
