Verdict? Not recommended
We’re waiting for breakfast at Steakhouse 55. Bryce has discovered the adult beverages, and has placed order. I’m more intrigued by Disney’s signature, non-alcoholic specialty beverages. Most Disney restaurants have one or two (e.g., the Cove Bar’s “Coconut Elixir). I’ve had good luck with them in the past.
Hey, it’s $5. It’s for science. Why not?
I go with the “Cool Lime Refresher.”
The drink arrives quickly, and I smile. The kitchen had some fun with the presentation: the glass sports Mickey ears, courtesy of cucumber and lime slices. Brilliant.
I get the straw, and take the first sip.
Initial impression: this is really sweet.
It’s not bad. Just … sweet. There’s a slight hint of cucumber, a bit of mint. But the dominant message is “sugar!,” and it’s delivered very clearly.
I keep going. The flavor flattens out. The beverage becomes over-sugared water. Which isn’t refreshing (or, frankly, that interesting). Finishing becomes a chore.
Sharon thought it needed more citrus. “Maybe more lime?” she suggested. I agree. This needs something … more. On its own, it’s not distinctive.
I’d hoped for something refreshing and light. This wasn’t it.
