If you think you’re seeing purple in the Disney Parks (and DFB!), that’s because you are. Purple Potion everything has taken over! Purple is the latest color trend to find its way into food, drinks, and merchandise at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. And at Disney California Adventure Park’s Lamplight Lounge (on the totally fun Pixar Pier!!) the menu now has two funky purple options!
Many thanks to @DisneyObserver on Instagram for sharing these pics with us! (Don’t forget to tag @DisneyFoodBlog so we can see what you’re up to in the Disney Parks!) The Purple Potion menu items at Lamplight Lounge include Berry Berry Purple Cobbler and the Purple Potion Holiday Drink!
The Berry Berry Purple Cobbler starts with a berry cobbler base that’s topped with blueberry cream cheese ice cream and berry sauce that’s packed with blueberries and cranberries! It’s served warm so there’s looooooots of melting going on. But how awesome does this look? Yes, please!
The Purple Potion Holiday Drink seems to have, you know, outlasted the holidays. But we’re glad because this isn’t just some fun-colored drink. It’s color-changing!
The Purple Potion Holiday Drink consists of Redemption Rye Whiskey, Ginger Infused Simple Syrup, and Butterfly Pea Tea. It’s that last ingredient that reacts with the shot of lemon juice you get alongside the beautiful purple/blue drink.
Pour in the lemon juice, and watch the color-changing reaction! The indig0-colored drink transforms…
…into this lovely opaque purple beverage! How cool! (You’ll recall the color-changing noodles from last spring’s Pixar Fest perform similarly!) @DisneyObserver notes that this drink is pretty sweet — despite that sour lemon juice — making it easy to drink (dangrously so!).
Yup, turns out there’s no such thing as too much purple. And we’re totally IN IT for themed eats and drinks!
