We feel a little like we’re living in Groundhog Day. The Citrus Blossom booth is a staple from EPCOT’s International Flower & Garden Festival, but in 2020 it also made an appearance at the International Food & Wine Festival AND the Festival of the Holidays. And now, it looks like that trend is just going to keep on going!
Now, The Citrus Blossom has made its appearance at the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. And now we’re heading back to see what’s new at this booth during its fourth festival appearance in a row.
For the Festival of the Arts, the Citrus Blossom booth once again features only drink options, most of which are the same as some of the other festivals, except there is a beer option that is NEW for 2021 (so you know we’ll be trying that, more on this drink in a moment).
Since there are no food options here, we’ll jump right into the drinks.
Once again, the Orange Cream Shake in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (non-alcoholic) is back and being served once again at this booth. When this sipper first came out, it sold out quickly and it took several WEEKS to find this friend again. Lines were also long to get this sipper for the 2020 Flower and Garden, but it’s a bit easier now to snatch up this orange friend.
We have a feeling this Little Orange Bird isn’t going anywhere for a while. You can get the Orange Cream Shake in the Orange Bird Sipper cup for $15.
For the Festival of the Arts, The Citrus Blossom is also serving up some Florida Orange Groves Winery Selections including Key Limen ($6.50), Strawberry Blush ($6.50), Sparkling Key Lime ($12.00), Sparkling Cranberry ($12.00), and Sparkling Blueberry ($12.00), just as it did during the Festival of the Holidays.
This festival, the booth also has a Florida Orange Groves Winery Orange Sunshine selection for $6.50 (which we spotted as an off-menu delight at the booth during the Festival of the Holidays).
We tasted the Sparkling Cranberry at the Festival of the Holidays and felt like it was was just the right mixture of dry and sweet. The Florida Orange Groves Winery Selections are also available by the bottle.
But, for our trip to this booth for the fourth festival in a row, we opted for the NEW beer option — the Lost Coast Brewery Tangerine Wheat Ale, Eureka, CA.
Okay, so this drink is SUPER citrusy and we thought the tangerine flavor was overpowering. Now tangerine lovers might totally dig that, but it was a bit too much for us! We think maybe just a little less tangerine flavor would have made this a very refreshing beverage!
It was also pretty sweet, but if that’s something you think you might like, you can get this drink for $4.50 for a 6 o.z. size, or $8.50 for the 12 o.z. size.
Overall, if you’re looking for some refreshing wines or an adorable souvenir sipper, The Orange Blossom booth might be one you’ll want to stop by. We’re making our way around all of the Festival of the Arts, so be sure to stay tuned for more details, photos, videos, and food reviews!
