We all know the Disney’s Violet Lemonade is the STAR of the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. But what exactly is it, how does it taste, and more importantly, can it be made at home? These are all the questions we asked ourselves.
Now, neither of us have been to the Flower or Garden festival yet. So we really had no idea how this should taste but the overall idea of mixing edible violets with lemonade seems simple enough.
We managed to find a dupe recipe online that called for Violet syrup which was good seeing as violets are not really in season yet up here Virginia. Tammy also had the brilliant idea of making an adult version by adding some Limoncello.
DIY Violet Lemonade
- 4 oz. violet syrup
- 1 ½ cups of water
- 8 oz. of frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1 drop of red & blue or purple food coloring
- 3 cups of Ice
- 3 oz. of Limoncello if you want to make the adult version.
Blend all the ingredients except the food coloring in a blender. Once blended, added in the food coloring one drop at a time till desired color is achieved.
The taste was not what we were expecting with the violet flavor was mellowed out pretty nicely by the lemon. That said, we not sure we could ever finish a full serving of this frozen treat. After a few sips we were done, so we suggest either sharing or do smaller serving.
