Tucked deep inside the France Pavilion at the World Showcase in Epcot is a charming little ice cream shop named L’Artisan des Glaces. Trust me when I say this is a spot that you want to search out, because it’s not easy to find.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this ice cream shop isn’t for adults. Just look at their menu and you will see the best hidden gem! The Ice Cream Martini! Start with picking 2 Scoops of ice cream then top it with a shot of Grand Marnier, Whipped Cream Vodka or Rum.
The choices of ice cream and sorbet are:
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Chocolate Ice Cream
- Mint-Chocolate Ice Cream
- Pistachio Ice Cream
- Hazelnut Ice Cream
- Profiterole Ice Cream
- Caramel Fleur de Sel Ice Cream
- Cherry Ice Cream
- Coco-white Chocolate Ice Cream
- Coffee Ice Cream
- Strawberry Sorbet
- Mango Sorbet
- Melon Sorbet
- Lemon Sorbet
- Pomegranate Sorbet
- Mixed Berry Sorbet
If my calculations are correct- that is over 300 different combinations of martinis! I’d love to have a challenge to see how many I could try! In March, I was able to test out my first combination of Hazelnut and Caramel with Whipped Cream Vodka.
DIStracted Tip: Give your ice cream a few minutes to melt before taking a big sip. The liquor is QUITE strong if you aren’t expecting it. Once I was able to stir the ice cream and Vodka together it was much easier to sip.
My dear friend and co-Editor here at Magical DIStractions, Christen G. decided to test out the Coffee, Hazelnut, and Whipped Cream Vodka combo.
