REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy Inspired an AWESOME Drink in EPCOT

It’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opening day!

It’s opening day!

We’re on the ground in EPCOT to bring you all of the Cosmic Rewind news, from the crowd levels, to information about the Lighting Lane situation, and even an updated look at the merchandise! But would we really be DFB if we didn’t mention the food, too? We spotted a new drink at Joffrey’s in World Discovery that is themed to the new rollercoaster!

Introducing: Joffrey’s Awesome Drink! This drink is “a galactic blend of frozen lemon ice with a splash of Minute Maid Premium Lemonade and desert pear syrup, topped with chewy green apple jelly stars.” This thing is SO cool looking. It’s a mix of green and purple/pink slush and the green jelly stars add a unique touch. But how does it TASTE?

It’s so COOL!

Right off the bat, the lemon flavor is very strong, so if you’re not a fan of lemon or lemonade, that’s an automatic negative. The desert pear flavors help to tone down the lemon flavors to make it less tart and tangy. We thought it kind of tasted like the iconic Violet Lemonade you can get during the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival!

It kind of tastes like Violet Lemonade!

The green apple stars are like chewier versions of boba pearls and are very similar in flavor to the boba in the Night Blossom drink over in Pandora at Animal Kingdom! People who are looking for a frozen drink or who are big fans of the Violet Lemonade will love this drink! While the gummy stars taste good, they’re pretty difficult to eat because they’re bigger than the straw we were given. This means that you’ll either have to wait until the drink is gone to eat them, or pick them out of slush.

The gummy stars are kind of hard to eat.

This is a slush, and Disney World is located in Florida, so it’s a given that it’s going to melt quickly. One thing to be aware of is that the syrup will separate from the rest of the slush and sink to the bottom as it starts to melt, so definitely try to drink it fast, if you can. If you’re not a fan of lemonade or artificial syrups, but still want something cold, we recommend trying something else, like the Apple Pie Gelato Shake from Connections Eatery.

This drink is $6.49 and available at the Joffrey’s in World Discovery. For $13.99 you can have Grey Goose Vodka added! We’ll be bringing you more news and updates from the opening day of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, so make sure to stay tuned to DFB for all the latest.
