Well, well, well, Citrus Blossom…do you come here often? The answer is YES. YOU DO COME HERE OFTEN.
In fact, Citrus Blossom has been at the last THREE (count ’em, THREE) EPCOT festivals. That’s gotta be a new record or something. So, yes, even though we reviewed it at the 2020 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival AND the 2020 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, we’re back for the 2020 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t show you the menu — especially since there’s a new beer option! The rest of it probably looks pretty familiar from other festivals. What does Citrus Blossom have to do with Christmastime? Well, you’ll have to decide that one, friends. We do like those lil’ chocolate oranges you get at Christmas…maybe that? 😂
With no food options at this booth, we’re diving straight into the drinks!
The star of this booth, as it has been for what feels like forever, is the Orange Cream Shake in an Orange Bird Sipper for $15. It was VERY popular when it first came out, but now it’s much easier to get your hands on this little guy.
Today, we’re DEFINITELY gonna try out that new beer. The 81Bay Brewing Co. Cinnamon Cranberry Orange Wheat Ale ($4.50/6 oz, $8.10/12 oz) is a local beer straight from Tampa, Florida. It was SO good — one of our favorite beers from all the fest booths! All the flavors were pronounced and blended so well with one another. If you don’t like beer, try this one. It’s approachable and easy to drink.
We also sipped on the Sparkling Cranberry from Florida Orange Groves Winery for $12. This sip came in a pretty flute and was just the right mixture of dry and sweet. You can also get Key Lime, Strawberry Blush, Sparkling Key Lime, and Sparkling Blueberry.
Overall, Orange Blossom brought us some easy-to-drink options and for that, we’re thankful; even if it feels like the Orange Bird has tried to take up permanent residence in EPCOT, abandoning Sunshine Tree Terrace. We’re reviewing ALL of the festival booths today, so stick around!
