Our Favorite Food Find: Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum
Location: Pineapple Promenade at Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival
When it was announced that there would be an alcoholic version of the Dole Whip served during the Flower and Garden Festival I couldn't wait to give it a try even though I usually don't drink adult beverages. This was a special occasion so I gave it a try and not before asking the CM to go light on the rum. I wanted to be able to walk around the World Showcase not stumble.The weather wasn't in our favor and I knew we only had a few minutes to enjoy our Dole Whips so we grabbed a table with a view and settled in until the rain came. Rain is Florida can be biblical and it was. Up popped the umbrella and on went the ponchos while we finished our whips and enjoyed the view.
The Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum was delicious with just the right amount of rum added to it. It still had the classic creamy cold sweet pineapple flavor but with a little kick in each bite. The rum they used is very good. It had just the right taste of spices and honey. What's even better is that it's made in Florida. I like that Disney is supporting local businesses.
I'll always prefer my Dole Whips straight without rum but this was a nice change and I look forward to having another one on our next Flower and Garden Festival adventure in May.
Siesta Key Spiced Rum is hand-crafted in small batches in Sarasota, Florida at our small, artisan distillery. We make our spiced rum by infusing our award winning rums with real spices and then adding honey for a bit of sweetness. We do not use any artificial flavors or sweeteners and you can taste the difference. Siesta Key Spiced rum is unlike any mass market spiced rums.
