Theme Park Therapy: Spring into Life!

Epcot in the SpringLooking for the positive in anything can be difficult, especially if that anything is something ghastly consuming to your life. We all have our days where the glass half full seems to be a bit emptier than ever. All I can say to you is that your Spring is here and your Summer is awaiting you.

HIPSTER Drink of the Week: Pimm’s Cup

Happy Friday Hipsters!

It’s time to toast to the weekend with this week’s HIPSTER Drink of the Week, Pimm’s Cup.

Pimm's Cup at Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot

Pimm’s Cup at Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot

Pimm’s Cup at Epcot’s Rose & Crown Pub is an outstanding way to begin the weekend. This simple, yet delicious cocktail mixes Pimm’s No. 1 and Sprite ®. That’s it! The Rose& Crown Pub definitely delivers something so simple that tastes extremely scrumptious. You can barely taste the alcohol, a plus for some drinkers, which leads to a nice buzz complete with a smooth, sweet finish.
