Is there anything better than sipping on a nice, cool cocktail while strolling around World Showcase on a hot day in Epcot?
As it turns out, there just might be… because new at the Via Napoli beverage and snack cart in Epcot’s Italy pavilion are COCKTAIL POPSICLES!
THREE Cocktail Popsicles by Pop Fusions are joined by a non-alcoholic Strawberry Popsicle (listed on the bottom of the menu) so everyone can get in on the frozen fun!
Let’s kick things off with the non-alcoholic Strawberry Pop Fusions popsicle. This one held up really well in the heat, giving us plenty of time to enjoy the refreshing fruity flavor.
You’ll want to note the ingredients in this $8.00 popsicle: they’re simply strawberries, sugar cane, water, and fresh squeezed lemon juice — made right in Florida to deliver on freshness.
Now onto the alcoholic Cocktail Popsicles! The Limoncello is exclusive to Via Napoli, and is made of limoncello liqueur and fresh, locally grown raspberries. The Berry Sangria popsicle is made with locally sourced wine and fresh berries.
We went with the Sparkling Strawberry Wine Cocktail Popsicle. And it’s fun to know that these particular Pop Fusions popsicles are made with Florida’s Island Grove Wine Company wines.
Sparkling wine and fresh locally grown strawberries come together to create a truly refreshing treat… IF you can eat it fast enough — we found it to be a pretty fast melt. We only found one slice of strawberry in the popsicle but there was still a hint of strawberry flavor and the treat was delicious overall!
Since these seem to melt pretty fast (at least in our experience), we suggest grabbing a cup from a quick service location just in case so you don’t lose your cocktail popsicle to the concrete below! Now, when it comes to purchasing one of these, here’s a heads up…Cast Members at the cart will only allow you to purchase ONE per valid 21-and-over ID.
