Shimmering Sips Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Shimmering Sips Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

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

While we enjoy mimosas in the morning (more bubbles than juice for us, though), the beverages at Shimmering Sips are a bit too sweet for our team.

Don’t get us wrong, the menu items are fine here. But, that’s it — they’re only fine. They didn’t blow our socks off. Nor did we like one offering more than another.

But, if you’re a mimosa fan or want a mimosa flight, then Shimmering Sips is definitely for you.

There is also a plant-based dessert, the Guava Cake with Whipped Cream and Coconut, which was, again, fine. This is a nice option for vegans, though!

Here’s everything you need to know about the Shimmering Sips booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Guava Cake

A light guava cake with whipped cream and coconut.

Shimmering Sips Guava Cake
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: Plant-based
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: The coconut looks like Parmesan cheese. Weird texture. Why is everything so juicy? I don’t like juicy cake. Please don’t hate me,
Felicia: The guava flavor is strong and delicious. It isn’t too sweet. But the texture is just mush. Only thing that isn’t mushy is the crispy coconut on top. Love the flavor, hate the texture.
Allyson: I’m glad they have a plant-based option and this is good. It has a good flavor, but I wouldn’t trek back for this.

Berry Mimosa

A berry fizz sparkling wine mixed with a white cranberry juice.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Shimmering Sips Berry Mimosa
  • Price: $7.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Tastes like strawberry Fanta?!! Kinda sweet, you know what? You do you. If you are a mimosa fan you will probably like this.
Felicia: Not much sparkling wine flavor. Tastes like cranberry. Great for people that want to drink but not taste the alcohol.
Allyson: A little too sweet for me. Wasn’t a favorite for me.

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.

Shimmering Sips Tropical Mimosa
  • Price: $7.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Pretty basic mimosa but with a slight tropical twist.
Heather: Tastes the most like a “traditional” mimosa. I drank some. Let me take another sip. Ok…it’s a bit better second time. Lesson learned: don’t give up on them.
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.

Blood Orange Mimosa

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

Brew Wing Blood Orange Mimosa
  • Price: $7.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.5/5

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 like plain orange juice and grapefruit juice mixed together to me. A little bitter. Not my favorite but would be good for people that like mimosas.
Allyson: Did not like this one as much this year. The flavor was just eh. It also felt thick.

Berry Sour Ale Mimosa

Boulevard Brewing Co. Berry Noir Sour Ale mixed with sparkling wine.

Shimmering Sips Berry Sour Mimosa
  • Price: $9.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Slight berry flavor but kinda bland.
Heather: This made me sad. I didn’t want to drink it. I didn’t get “sour”, I only tasted champagne.
Felicia: Surprisingly good. The berry sour ale is a nice contrast to the sparkling wine. Good “mimosa” option for someone who prefers more tartness than sweetness.
Allyson: Not too sweet or sour, but just ok. Nothing I’d come back for.
