Shimmering Sips Menu & Review (Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Hosted by CORKCICLE this year, the Shimmering Sips booth is the spot for anyone who wants a sweet treat and/or mimosas.

The booth is located towards the Canada pavilion in the Showcase Plaza (near Port of Entry). It’s a busy area and sometimes has a long line, so keep that in mind.

If you like mimosas, then this is the booth for you. You can also find ice cream and a plant-based banana bread option for those in need of a sweet.

There are definitely hits and misses here, but some good choices for those who like sweeter things and fruitier drinks.

Rating: 3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Pretty but pretty basic strawberry cone.
Heather: Strawberry and basic (like me).
Felicia: Refreshing strawberry soft serve, but it melts very quickly so ask for a cup if you get it.
Allyson: I loved this. Great flavor and refreshing. So good.

Banana Bread

Banana Bread - Shimmering Sips

Price: $4.50
Special Diets: Plant-based
Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Excellent for a plant-based option.
Heather: It’s a little grainy but it is a good plant based option. Ally likes it so I think that it is pretty swell, too.
Felicia: I’m not a fan of banana bread, but I thought this was delicious. The berry compote is tart and complements the bread well.
Allyson: As a vegetarian, I think this a great choice and super yummy. Not too heavy either.

Tropical Mimosa

Sparkling wine mixed with a tropical blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juices.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Pretty basic mimosa but with a slight tropical twist.
Heather: Tastes the most like a “traditional” mimosa. I drank some.
Felicia: If you like POG juice from ‘Ohana, this is the mimosa for you. Delicious and refreshing.
Allyson: This is nice and refreshing with good tropical flavor.

Key Lime Mimosa

A tart Key lime sparkling wine mixed with white cranberry juice.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Key Lime Mimosa - Shimmering Sips

Price: $6.25
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Rating: 2/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Sweet Tart in a cup. Too sweet.
Heather: My favorite of all of the mimosas. But, it is super sweet. So skip if you don’t like sweet.
Felicia: Somehow this tastes just like apple juice to me. It’s syrupy and nothing like Key lime.
Allyson: Not my favorite out of all the mimosas. Has too much of a wine taste for me.

Blood Orange Mimosa

Sparkling wine mixed with a sweet blood orange juice.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Blood Orange Mimosa - Shimmering Sips

Price: $6.25
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Thick and not as flavorful as expected.
Heather: Maybe a no. It isn’t so great but not terrible. It’s a strong “meh”.
Felicia: This has a lot of juice and taste just like plain orange juice to me. Not my favorite but would be good for people that like mimosas.
Allyson: It’s on the thicker side, but really flavorful and has a nice punch to it. I really like this.
