Of the 29 booths at the 17th Annual Food & Wine Festival, we hit 23 of them in our short 3 day visit to EPCOT; however, that statistic is somewhat misleading considering certain booths received our dubious attention 2, 3 or maybe even 4 times.

The food and wine festival was absolutely fabulous. Returning home from Disney to my own cooking was a brutal slap in the face. I wish I had the patience and skills to create half the fabulous meals offered at Disney, but I think it's important we all recognize our own strengths and weaknesses. Cooking, for me, is a necessary evil. Enjoying delicious meals at the Food & Wine Festival, however, is definitely something I will continue to enjoy for years to come.
Grand Marnier Orange Slush - France Drink Kiosk Epcot
3 cups Grand Marnier
1 cup *Orange Fruit Smoothie from Florida Natural Flavors in Casselberry, FL
Ice if making in a blender
Mix Vodka and *Orange Fruit Smoothie from Florida Natural Flavors It helps to chill the mix before putting in a slushie machine. Add the required amount of water for your machine (generally for 1 liter alcohol you use 1 ¾ gallon or 28 cups water.) If making in a blender use enough ice to produce the slushie effect. *If substituting the Orange Fruit Smoothie try for something with an orange dreamsicle taste.
