Celebrate National Watermelon Day (August 3rd) at Restaurants in Disney Springs

Hi everyone!

Today is National Watermelon Day! On August 3rd, many of the most popular restaurants at Disney Springs are showcasing watermelon. We were at Vivoli il Gelato yesterday, and I do recommend the watermelon sorbetto – that should be available all month long and is gluten free, dairy free and vegan. More information was sent to us about a variety of restaurants celebrating the day!

Celebrate the juicy freshness of summer’s most refreshing snack in it’s best form – a delicious cocktail. At Morimoto Asia, located in Disney Springs guests can enjoy the Watermelon Soyokaze, just one of the seasonal summer cocktails at the restaurant. This bright blend of spirits includes Cruzan Rum, fresh watermelon juice, lime juice Midori and a splash of cranberry juice served on ice.

At Vivoli il Gelato, cool off with a traditional watermelon sorbetto. This traditional Italian snack is made with three simple ingredients: watermelon, water and sugar. Blend and put into an ice cream machine to create a cool summer time snack.

Brighten your cocktail with the Summer Affair at STK Orlando. Guests can enjoy fresh watermelon, Botanist Gin, lime, tonic and fresh mint in this sexy cocktail.

At Art Smith’s Homecomin Kitchen, enjoy the Summer Salad – watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, crispy jam, feta cheese, shaved red onion and candied pecans over spinach and missed greens tossed in house-made green goddess dressing and drizzled with balsamic glaze.
