We’ve hopped to making a version of an Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival favorite! While the colors, sights and smells of the Flower and Garden Festival are toadally marvelous (and included with regular Epcot admission), sometimes you just can't make it to the park or you want to bring a little bit of that magic home with you. We're here to help with our own version of the festival favorite Violet Lemonade! For us frogs, it was certainly love at first sip. The tadpoles are sure to love this brightly colored sweet treat.
When we set out to craft our own Violet Lemonade Recipe, we noticed a lot of online recipes called for boiling violets. Now, we're all for getting out in nature but we just don't find many violets around our frog pond, so we sought an alternative. Don’t worry, momma frogs, we’ve made this Frozen Violet Lemonade Recipe hassle free and oh-so-tasty!
Follow these easy-peasy, step-by-step instructions for our Disney Violet Lemonade recipe. This frozen treat is a frogtastic way to commemorate your Epcot Flower and Garden festivities or get your family excited for the festival. It’s also the perfect way to chill on a warm day! For those of you who want to see it in action, watch our time-lapse tutorial of the Frozen Violet Lemonade Recipe!
Re-Crafted Disney Violet Lemonade Recipe
For this Disney Violet Lemonade recipe, you’ll need:
- 4 oz. violet syrup
- 1 ½ cups of water
- 8 oz. of frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1 drop of red food coloring
- A tad bit of blue food coloring
- 3 cups of Ice
- Edible violet flowers (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients (violet syrup, water, red and blue food coloring and ice) into blender and blend until smooth.
Hop Tip: Use just a tad bit of blue food coloring — a little goes a long way! Dab food coloring on a toothpick and stir in. Start with a very small amount and add as needed until it reaches the desired violet color. Gel food coloring tends to be more saturated than liquid.
Pour into glasses and garnish with a violet and lemon. Share, sip and enjoy!
The tadpoles are sure to love this sweet treat! For you mama and papa frogs out there who need to balance out the sugary taste (or just need a break!), try Mommy Frog's secret ingredient: vodka. A splash (or shot) will do the trick!
