Slushies for Grown-Ups: Which Is Your Favorite?

Don’t get me wrong, I love slush puppies and slurpees as much as the next kid-at-heart, but sometimes ya just need a little vodka.

Disney has been wowing guests for years with two citrus-y, slushie concoctions that you need to be above 21 to order; and at this time of year they a third to the mix — only in town for a limited time — that might just top the other two…

Grand Marnier Orange Slush and Grey Goose Citron/Lemon Slush
The Grand Marnier Slush and the Grey Goose Slush sit side by side in Epcot’s France pavilion at a little outdoor champagne kiosk across from Les Chefs de France.

Slush Machines in Epcot's France Pavilion

Nothing about the slush machines swirling those orange and yellow mixtures would tip newcomers off to the fact that these two drinks are some of the most highly-recommended and beloved signature cocktails in Walt Disney World, but every once in a while the line can get long enough that they might get the hint!

Grey Goose Citron Slush

With the same icy texture as the slush you get at your favorite convenience store at home, these delights are a simple combination of drink mixes (Orange Fruit Smoothie and Polynesian Pleasure Lemon, according to my research) and high-end alcohol: Grand Marnier and Grey Goose Citron Vodka.

Grand Marnier Orange Slush

The tart-sweet taste and chilly mouth-feel is a great way to start any tour around the World Showcase!

Parisian Cosmo Slush
But when the Epcot Food and Wine Festival comes around, the France Booth in the World Showcase introduces a competitor to the orange and lemon mainstays!

Parisian Cosmo Slush

With Grey Goose vodka, Grand Marnier, and Cranberry Juice, the Parisian Cosmo Slush takes the stage with a shockingly red-pink color and a taste that’s out of this world! To those of you who stand by your Grey Goose Citron Slush and Grand Marnier Orange Slush…whatever do you do when you see that Cosmo so close-by? Personally, I can’t help but defect! ;-) I’ll go for the Cosmo anytime!

Cast Your Vote!
I’m on a poll kick around here, so let’s decide once and for all — which Slushie reigns supreme?

Grey Goose, Grand Marnier, or Cosmo?

    I honestly have to give my vote to the Italian Margarita in Italy!

  2. Dana says:

    Although my truly favorite of all favorites is the Yak Attack at the Yak and Yeti. :-)

  3. Brenda says:

    I give the nod to the lemon squishee … it’s refreshing enough to be enjoyed during a warm Florida day without that cloying sweetness that the other two drinks have. I will say, however, that the grand marnier squishee makes a fine outdoor after-dinner drink at Epcot once the sun goes down.

    As for that Parisian cosmo …. bleh … it only takes one bad experience and ours was like fruit punch the last time we tried it. ICK!

  4. Sara says:

    I’m always torn between the Grand Marnier and the Grey Goose squishees. I was lured in last trip by the bright pink of the Cosmo, but wasn’t that big a fan. Too tart for my taste (this is not to say I didn’t drink it, however!). These + a chocolate crepe = Epcot bliss.

  5. Sarah says:

    I tried the Cosmo this year, and while very good (as well as garnering MANY questions of “What is that?” and “Where did you get that?!”), I have to vote for the Grand Marnier Orange Slush.

  6. Melissa says:

    It’s sad to me that the Italian Margherita goes unnoticed. It’s better than all of the slush options in France.

  7. Dana says:

    While I love both the Orange and lemon slush from France, I was introduced to the Mojito slush at the snack kiosk located between the entrance into the world Showcase and Canda on my last trip and was blown away by its bright beautiful flavor. It wasnt as sweet as the other slushes and was maybe even a bit savory.

    But… I’m not one to play favorites….I’ll have all three on my upcoming trip in two weeks. Oh and if they still have the Cosmo, I’ll have to try it too. You know.. for research!!!

  8. AJ says:

    Heather and Melissa — Wait for my Margarita throw-down… :-)

    Dana — Agreed; what a great treat!

    Brenda — What’s wrong with fruit punch? ;-)

    Sara — Great idea to pair these with a chocolate crepe!

    Sarah — Going back to an old favorite!

    Dana — Haven’t tried the mojito, yet (not a big fan of mint), but with your glowing review I just might!

  9. Jen says:

    I’ve never been old enough before to try one of these wonderful creations (believe me I tried to get served in 2008, no such luck haha) but now I’m 21 next time I’m at WDW I shall def be getting one ;) that Grey Goose is calling me!

  10. Beth says:

    I love the Grey Goose. On our trip in March, my parents took the kids for one night so my husband and I could go into Epcot. Even though it was only about 35/40 degrees that night, I made sure to get my Grey Goose Slush!

  11. Kelly says:

    I have to vote for the Cosmo slush. I like the Grey Goose one too, but I like the tart-ness of the Cosmo slush. Yum. I’ll take 2.

  12. Alex says:

    Grey Goose Citron Slush, for not being too sweet, but being delicious, and dangerously drinkable, although I admit I have yet to have the Cosmo.

  13. Abby says:

    I’ve only tried the Grand Marnier version, and cannot wait to sample the others! It was soooooo good!

  14. Aubrey says:

    We tell everyone who will listen about the Grand Marnier slush! I think it was what my husband was most excited about when we returned this fall. We were surprised at how much we enjoyed the cosmo slush as well, but put a smile on our face faster than the Grand Marnier!

    The orange slush is really good. I have to admit to being “green” enough that the plastic glasses (however cute) that they come in throw me into a fit of guilt. I don’t guess there’s really a good alternative out there, though.

  16. Chloe says:

    I have found if you want to drunk your slushie and walk ask for the drink in a regular cup (which I think it coded for recycling Chris). Not only do you avoild the orange spill marks on your shirt for the entire day but it seems the girls usually don’t quite know how much to put in the cup and you usually get a larger serving. Once I am pretty sure I got a double!!!! I would feel guilty but I have spent most of my retirement on eating and drinking around Epcot.
