France - Drink Stand

     

Get ready for an unexpected treat, two excellent slushes with top shelf liquor.  Grey Goose Citron and Grand Marnier perform their best impersonations of a frozen lemonade and an orange slush at the gas station.  These two slushes are on par with the delicious margaritas back in Mexico but with their own citrus twist on the original. Here's the bad news, they're served in a plastic martini glass.  Not only does it make you feel like a fool, drinking a slush with a straw out of a martini glass, but it can't be more than about 10oz.

Located lagoon side across from Chefs de France.

Grey Goose Citron SlushPour Quality 
Slushes: Above Average

Food 
None at this stand but you can head to the back of the pavillion for a great little pastry shop.

Atmosphere 
Ah, Paris, the city of lights, representing La Belle Epoque (the beautiful time) era of France from 1870-1910. Take your wine and try to spot the hidden mickey shrub as you wander through the gardens in front of the perfume shop or head inside and do a little shopping. If you're around when 'Serveur Amusant' juggling performer is setting up for a show, stick around and watch a comedic mime delicately stack, and climb, chairs to dizzying heights. There are a few tables & chairs right next to this stand overlooking the lagoon. If you're going to the movie, you are allowed to have a drink while waiting, but not in the main theater.


Review 
Slushes are ungodly expensive, but it's a decent amount of top shelf liquor and it tastes great.  While the beer and wine is your typical $6 bucks, the sparkling vodka is around two or three million . . . OK, it's $15 but it might as well be a billion. If anyone has tried the vodka, write in and let us know what you thought (or at least what you were thinking.)

I wanted to try the vodka but it was even too ridiculous for ME! Crazy expensive, pink, and literally labeled "for her."

The grey goose orange slush tastes just like a dreamsicle! SO good! I could drink my weight in them.

I tried the nuvo and it was pretty amazing. It's Disney, you are meant to splurge! It was perfect for me because I love vodka and champange and this was the best of both worlds.

For fifteen bucks it'd better be good, right?! Thanks for the input!

I have bought the Nuvo vodka at a local liquor store for wayyyyyy less than it costs at that Epcot booth. Its good but its not OMG-you-have-to-try-this.

The Nuvo sparkling vodka is NOT worth it. You can get a bottle of it for about $8 at a liquor store, and even then, I was not impressed by it. There's not enough vodka in the whole thing to warrant the reputation it's garnered.

Vera - Thank you! And they want $14 for ONE glass! Yikes!

I did not have the Nuvo in the park but bought it at home. I honestly have nothing good to say about it -- it tastes terrible! (A bit like sweat :/ ) Just stick to the slushes; they're delish!
