We may be just a few weeks away from fall but temps in Orlando are still in the 90’s. If you need a way to keep cool here are the 7 best drinks and dishes to help lower your body temp:
When you think of refreshing treats to keep you cool and your tastebuds satisfied in Orlando you might think of Dole Whips. The favorite soft-serve dessert at Walt Disney World comes in multiple flavors including pineapple, orange, raspberry, lemon, lime, mango and even an alcoholic Dole Whip. The frozen treat can be found throughout the Orlando theme park.
There is something about an ice-cold drink when it’s hot outside. Universal Orlando serves up one of the most refreshing drinks on this list - frozen butter beer. Not only is the concoction super cold, it’s full of butterscotch and shortbread flavors. You can find it in Diagon Alley at the Leaky Cauldron and Hopping Pot and in Hogsmeade at Three Broomsticks and Hog’s Head Pub.
Le Fou’s Brew
Speaking of frozen drinks, Gaston’s Tavern in Disney’s Magic Kingdom serves up a giant glass of frozen apple juice called Le Fou’s Brew. The drink has a hint of toasted marshmallow and a mango foam.
Blue and Green Milk
The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens tomorrow and is sure to be a popular spot for Disney and Star Wars fans. Between the crowds and the Orlando heat you will certainly be in need of something to cool you off. Head to a Blue Milk stand and try the new concoction - a frozen, slushy-style plant-based drink. The drink comes in both blue and green. The blue drink, which is indeed blue, tastes full of berries and melon while the green milk is more citrusy and tropical.
LEGOLAND Florida keeps guests cool throughout the hot summer months with slushies. Fun Town Slushies offers a wide variety of ice-cold slushy flavors as well as novelty ice cream treats. Bonus: when you purchase a souvenir cup you can come back for discounted refills all day long!
Mickey Ice Cream Bars
Next to the Dole Whip, the Mickey Ice Cream Bars are one of the most popular cool treats at Walt Disney World. The classic chocolate and vanilla combo comes shaped like Mickey himself and will certainly put a smile on your face.
Ice Cream Martini
For adults looking for a way to cool off the Ice Cream Martini at L’Artisan des Glaces in the France pavilion in Epcot is a must-try. The Ice Cream Martini comes with two scoops of ice cream or sorbet, covered in a shot of either rum, Grand Marnier, or vodka. It’s served in a plastic martini glass, which makes it all the more fun to enjoy. It’s easily the most decadent way to cool off this summer.
