Disney has announced that it will offer up a special brew to guests at Gaston’s Tavern when it opens the New Fantasyland in the near future.
I’m sure people are going to love Lefou’s Brew – a sweet concoction named for the squat sidekick from “Beauty and the Beast.”
I’m just not so sure I’ll love it.
I’m definitely going to try it – I want to get my hands on those souvenir mugs – but there are elements in the recipe I’m not crazy about. Lefou’s Brew is a no-sugar added frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam.
Let’s break that down: Frozen apple juice – OK, nothing too crazy so far. I’d be a little more excited if there was some carbonation involved. I suppose there could be (visitors to Cars Land at Disneyland would know – there’s a version of it there at the Cozy Cone.)
Next: a hint of toasted marshmallow. This thing is getting very sweet, very fast.
Finally, it’s topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam. Gross. I’m just not a big fan of passion fruit or mango. Which probably explains how I keep such a physique.
I’m not one to whine without offering a solution, however, so let me suggest my own addition to this frothy concoction: Rum.
Sure, I know the Magic Kingdom is a dry park, and I do not have a problem with that. It’s just that I think the rum would make me forget about the passion fruit and mango. And the hint of marshmallow.
Thus, a mission has been born…
In fact, I think it’ll be a good idea to attempt to recreate Lefou’s Brew and add my secret ingredient. And other Mousejunkies can add their own special touches.
