You guys! Run! Run to Sprinkles right now!
Because in addition to selling awesome Cupcakes and Frosting Shots and Cookie/Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches, for the month of July, Sprinkles is also serving up truly refreshing Moscow Mule Mocktail Floats!
That’s right. We’ve all come to know and love Sprinkles in Disney Springs, with its cheerful decor and hyper-cool Cupcake ATM. But we’ve discovered that it’s so much more than a sunny place to grab a cupcake.
In fact, we’ve devoured just about everything on the menu with reckless abandon, stopping in to see what’s new in the dessert case and on the menu every chance we get. Because Sprinkles is always cooking up (or churning out!) something new and interesting. Back in May, they offered a Margarita Cupcake, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
So when we saw that they were offering Moscow Mule Mocktail Floats, we ordered one STAT!
The Moscow Mule Mocktail Float starts with two large scoops of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (which, well, that’s the best way to start most things). They’re packed into a Sprinkles To-Go cup, which is a decent size.
The ice cream is topped off with a Moscow Mule mixer. This one is made by Owen’s, a company out of New York City.
The Ginger + Lime Owen’s Mixer is non-alcoholic and carbonated, bringing some bubbles to the ice cream. As with nearly all floats, it’s a match made in heaven.
And the flavor? Totally, totally, 100% terrific. Maybe it’s the real juice of lime and pure cane sugar that they use, but it’s bangin’!
The flavor being so potent, it’s gotta be good — and it so is. But because it’s a mocktail, you want it to taste like a classic Moscow Mule, and this mixer is very similar to ginger beer. But those bubbles… they create some serious foam.
The vanilla bean ice cream is a perfect accompaniment to the mixer. And because that initial pour of the Owen’s doesn’t empty the bottle, you get to take the rest with you to keep topping off your drink. It’s refreshing and fun new flavor profile!
The Moscow Mule Mocktail Float is a specialty item to celebrate National Ice Cream Month (wait — what about the other eleven months?), so you can only get this through July 31. But if you’re in the vicinity of Sprinkles at any time this month, go get this drink. It’s $8.00 very well spent!
The only thing that could possibly make it better? A little booze. But since it tastes so out-of-this-(hot-in-central-Florida)-world, we will drink it any day!
