Last week, a friend mentioned that the Tortuga Tavern was now selling Non-Alcoholic Sangria. We weren't expecting to find the Tortuga Tavern open at 6pm yesterday – but it was, and we stopped to try one.
Walt Disney World has been experimenting with a number of new food options, our favorite recently were the waffles at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. Disney has also apparently been trying to find a signature drink – I am not sure if this will be "it", but it's a step in the right direction.
We were told that the Tortuga Sangaree is made with a sangria base, orange juice, lime juice and a splash of Sprite. Fresh fruit, including blueberries, was also added. I don't really care for regular sangria, but found this one refreshing! I also thought the price was a little high at $3.69, but it was a nice treat that we both enjoyed. Sprite is added to the cup first, and then the sangria/fruit juice mixture is added.

The Tortuga Sangaree had a nice portion of fruit – raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries:
When we were done, we were told that Mickey shaped pretzels had also been added to a Frontierland cart. We didn't buy one (the pretzel costs $4.50), but took a few photos.
I'm working on a Fantasyland update now, then photos of Christmas offerings now available to all guests at the Magic Kingdom. It's been a great week to visit the parks!
