The Citrus Blossom Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

You’re able to purchase citrus-themed food and drinks from the Citrus Blossom booth.

This year, the outdoor kitchen is stationed inside the Odyssey instead of being located near the Port of Entry (the entrance of the World Showcase).

Orange Bird is always present in some way at this booth. Like past years, in 2023, guests can once again purchase an adorable sipper that comes with a non-alcoholic beverage.

Tip: When ordering the sipper, you can have the non-alcoholic beverage served in a different glass. This way you don’t have to drink directly from the sipper or worry about rinsing it out in the restroom once you’re finished.

There is also a cute Orange Bird bundle you can purchase this year for $19 (tax included) that features the Orange Bird souvenir sipper and The Orange Bird Little Golden Book.

You can purchase the sipper and book individually, but if you want both you should buy the bundle to save a couple bucks.

Photos & Reviews

Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp

Sesame Tempura Shrimp served with an orange chile sauce. This is a new item for the 2023 festival.

Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $7.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fantastic portion, light breading, orange chile sauce is a great flavor component to the shrimp.
Felicia: The tempura battering is cooked well and is super crunchy and fresh. My only complaint is there isn’t enough of the orange sauce.

Citrus Baked Brie

Brie baked with preserved lemon marmalade, limoncello-macerated blueberries, and spiced marcona almonds. This is a new item for the 2023 Festival.

Citrus Baked Brie Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portion, flavors a little bland.
Heather: Delicious and fresh. The Brie is so tasty – but be warned the almonds are SPICY.
Felicia: I expected to love this and I really didn’t. The flavors were overwhelming and the texture was funky. Lemon flavor tasted like a cleaning agent. Not for me.
Allyson: Really wanted to love this, but it didn’t wow me. The citrus does add a nice flavor, but not super impressed.

Lemon Meringue Pie

A lemon meringue pie made with lemon curd, lemon mousse, and toasted meringue. This is a new item for the 2023 Festival.

Lemon Meringue Pie Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Delish! Great portion and presentation, light lemon flavors.
Heather: Really, really sweet. Not bad. Just SUPER sweet. Kind of a fake lemon flavor, too,
Felicia: Light and flavorful meringue with a solid crust that is a nice textural contrast to the meringue. Loved it.
Allyson: A decent lemon meringue pie. Good flavors that go together well.

Orange-Lemon Smoothie

A non-alcoholic Orange-Lemon Smoothie served in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (limit 2 per guest).

Orange Lemon Smoothie Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $15.00
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Delicious and refreshing. Like an Orange creamsicle. Cute cup too.
Heather: I did not care for this one at all. The flavor felt so … wrong.
Felicia: The sipper is adorable and the smoothie isn’t bad. Again, I’m not a fan of sweet drinks so I wouldn’t get this personally but if you don’t mind sweet this has good flavor.
Allyson: This is on the sweeter side and kind of reminds me of a sweet tart, but still super refreshing on a hot day. Plus, the sipper is super adorable. But wouldn’t waste my money unless I really wanted the sipper. It’s also very kid-friendly.

UFO Beer Co. Citrus Hazy Wheat Beer

A hazy wheat beer with notes of citrus brewed by UFO Beer Co. in Boston, MA. This item is new for the 2023 Festival.

Hazy Wheat Beer Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Yummm. So light with just the right hint of citrus. Would get it as a full size option and not just in the flight.
Heather: Really good wheat beer with a hint of citrus.
Felicia: Very light wheat that is refreshing. Light orange flavors. Great beer for the heat.
Allyson: A good hazy wheat beer that has wonderful orange flavors. Great for a hot day.

81Bay Brewing Co. Citrus Honey Cream Ale

A Citrus Honey Cream Ale brewed by 81Bay Brewing Co. in Tampa, Florida.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Honey Cream Ale Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the lightness of both the honey and cream flavors in this. Would definitely order this as a full sized option.
Heather: Another solid citrus beer option. Very light and refreshing!
Felicia: This is interesting. Taste like a light cream soda with a bit of beer flavor. Fine in the flight but wouldn’t get it on its own.
Allyson: Do not like this one bit, but I also hate cream ales.

 Orange Octane Imperial Sour

An orange sour brewed by Parish Brewing Co. Drive Thru in Broussard, LA. This is a new item for the 2023 Festival.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Orange Octane Imperial Sour Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Really bad. Bitter. Lacking good flavor.
Heather: If Tang and Natural Light had a baby….this is what you would get.
Felicia: This is okay. The orange flavor is artificial but the sour isn’t too much. I don’t hate it but don’t love it.
Allyson: No. Absolutely not. I don’t like sours and this is very sour.

 Bella Strada Spritz

A fresh and light bodied Spritz with notes of orange. This is a new item for the 2023 Festival.

Bella Strada Spritz Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not good. Not good at all. Bitter.
Heather: Very odd after taste – BUT, very pretty!
Felicia: The bubbles make it refreshing and it isn’t too sweet or too orange heavy.
Allyson: Reminds me of an Aperol Spritz, but had a weird after taste. I really don’t like the flavor here.

Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy

An Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy.

Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy Citrus Blossom
  • Price: $7.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Refreshing but alllmost too sweet.
Heather: Does it taste a bit artificial? Yes. But it is hot and the frozen stuff tastes good.
Felicia: This is very sweet and tastes somewhat like bubblegum and not at all like alcohol. Relatively light for how sweet it is.
Allyson: Not fantastic, but also not horrible. Very, very sweet. Tastes a little artificial to me.
