There are lots of yummy things to try at the Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, which happens to be the longest EPCOT festival to ever take place in Disney World!
We’ve already munched and sipped our way around the World Showcase (a few times) to compile our Best of the Fest list for you, but today we noticed a classic festival item has just shown up at Italy’s booth!
What first drew our attention to change-up was a janky-looking piece of tape on the Italy booth’s menu. We thought to ourselves, why did they cover up the “Frozen” part of “Frozen Italian Margarita” and then we were like wait…was there EVEN a Frozen Italian Margarita there to begin WITH?!?
That’s when we remembered the Italian Marg (which has been a part of EPCOT’s festival scene for what seems like forever) was strangely absent this year! The last time we enjoyed one of these mixed drinks (before today), was at EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays where we got one from Tuscany Holiday Kitchen for $10.
Now it’s gone up a buck and costs $11. What’s even more unusual is the popular drink is only list on the booth’s large menu — the smaller menu at the stand where you order your food from doesn’t even list it!
But as you can see, the Italian Margarita made with Limoncello and Tequila has magically returned! A Cast Member we spoke with told us many guests were asking about it and were disappointed to learn it wasn’t available. That prompted their decision to make it available after all — even though the festival had already begun!
If you’ve never tried the Italian Marg, it’s got the same semi-frozen consistency as France’s La Vie en Rose Frozen Slushy. It’s not too sweet but definitely tart from that delicious splash of limoncello. This one’s a 10 out of 10 in the flavor and cool down department if you enjoy a light and bright cocktail refreshment after a heavy meal!
It doesn’t get much better than the Italian Marg in our book, and if ya know, ya know! Pick one up at Italy’s food booth today to celebrate its sweet return!
