Violet Lemonade is a fan favorite drink at EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival. Found at the Pineapple Promenade outdoor kitchen booth, the festival favorite is a simple beverage that pairs both floral and fruity flavors, as the lemonade is infused with hints of violet. It has a lovely purple hue that makes it feel extra-special. It’s a cool and refreshing beverage that’s perfect for a warm spring day at EPCOT!
Did you know that violets themselves are edible? The flower and the leaves can be consumed, and contain high amounts of vitamin A & C. You can purchase the flower in this recipe at your local garden shop. Just be sure it’s not had any chemicals sprayed on it. Or you can omit the flower completely.
Here’s the recipe so you can try it at home. It is taken out of the Unofficial Disney Parks Drink Recipe Book.
5 ounces violet syrup
4 ounces lemonade
1 drop blue food coloring
1 drop red food coloring
3 cups crushed ice
1 edible violet flower
Add violet syrup, lemonade, food colorings (optional, it will just not be purple if you don’t use it), and ice into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a 20 oz. glass and top with edible flower.
