We’ve got some awechum news for those of us who lurve the slushes in Epcot’s France (and that’s all of us, right?)!!
Well listen up… France’s signatures Slushes have been SUPERSIZED!
Oh, AND they have an extra shot added, too! Allow me to explain…
If you visit this champagne and wine kiosk, you may spot a sign on an electric screen (my sincere apologies – I really tried to get a picture, but in the midday sun, all it shows is a reflection of those of us in line! Aaah, screens and the FL sun… 😉 ).
Anyway, the sign reads: “Shot of Grey Goose Le Citron included in the SUPERSIZED Lemon Slush.”
By the way, while it doesn’t come up on the screen (or at least didn’t during my visit), you can also choose to get the Grand Marnier Orange Slush Supersized. Which is exactly what I did!
As the sign says, the Supersize Grey Goose Citron Slush has an added shot of Grey Goose Citron Vodka. Likewise, the Grand Marnier Orange Slush has a shot of Grand Marnier added. Or you can mix things up, which is what I did (a la the Parisian Cosmo Slush sans the Cranberry juice!). You’ll be directed to the straws so you can mix the shot in with the slush before drinking, but I took my pictures first so you could see the pour on top.
Exactly how “super” is the Super Size? It ups the beverage in the cup by about 50%. Now, when you look at the picture, there isn’t much of a height difference between the Supersized Grand Marnier (the bright orange glass), and the standard-sized Grey Goose Citron Slush (the clear glass).
But if you’ll notice, the Supersized stemware is a margarita glass, so the added beverage fills the larger top of the cup, as opposed to the slimmer martini-style cup of the Grey Goose. The Supersized glass holds twelve ounces – the standard size holds eight. As always, each is happily filled to the tippy-top!
From my perspective, the supersizing made my drink much more of a “stay and sip awhile.” My one small issue with my beloved Grand Marnier Slush has always been that it’s so smooth and yummy that it’s waaaaay too easy to drink it quickly!
I don’t know if it was the added size, or the added shot, but this solved THAT little dilemma 😉 . The supersized beverage helps you take your time to sip and savor.
At $15.96 (tax not included), this is definitely one of those “hey-I’m-on-vacation” treats. But if it’ll last you that much longer during Illuminations after you’ve scored that perfect viewing area on the bridge between France and the U.K. Pavilion, you may find it worth the vacation splurge.
Will you be supersizing your next slush? Please let us know with a comment!
