1. When you Need a Drink to…Beat the Heat: Mango Tango, from Joffrey’s Handcrafted Smoothies Kiosk
If that Florida heat has you craving a frosty beverage, stop by the Marketplace Joffrey’s Kiosk to grab a fruit smoothie. With drinks like the Razzy Jazzy, Tropical Sunset, and Purple Pinata on the menu, you know your taste buds are about to explode. You can’t go wrong ordering here but our favorite drink is hands-down the Mango Tango. Pineapple, papaya, mango and passion fruit juice blended with creamy yogurt and coconut cream makes for a delightful afternoon treat with a tropical vibe.
2. When you Need a Drink to…Unwind: Strawberry Lemonade Cider, Broski Ciderworks from City Works Eatery & Pour House
City Works Eatery & Pour House is one of my favorite stops for appetizers and drinks when I’m looking to cool off and spend a while relaxing before hitting the shops. This restaurant is of course best known for their awesome beer selection on tap. However, the Strawberry Lemonade Cider will forever be my favorite drink on the menu. Crip, summery and delicious, this Pompano Beach Florida made drink hits the spot and is light enough for sipping any time of day. If beer is more your speed you came to the right place! With a menu of 90 beers available, you can buy a drink by the glass or sample several when you create your own flight.

3. When you Need a Drink To… Go Wild: Amazon Journey, from Rainforest Café
If you are craving a cocktail while shopping Disney Springs’ Marketplace, look no further than Rainforest Café Lava Lounge. This Disney Springs restaurant and lounge has been a staple over the decades and never disappoints with savory food, cool cocktails and of course the awesome rainforest ambiance. You can order from the bar during a meal at Rainforest Café or you can drop directly by Lava Lounge to enjoy cocktails and an appetizer. The menu boasts an array of fruity cocktails but we recommend trying the Amazon Journey. This fruit juice, strawberry rum and Bacardi cocktail is the perfect drink to sip while you kick back and relax during a shopping day.
4. When you Need a…Caffeine Jolt: Salted Caramel Cold Brew, from Everglazed Donuts
There are lots of great coffee options at Disney Springs. You cannot go wrong with a stop at the classic Disney coffee bar Joffrey’s or even a cup of joe fom Starbucks. Still, the best new place we would recommend to get your caffeine fix is Everglazed Donuts on the West Side of Disney Springs. Choosing a coffee from the menu may prove to be difficult with such delicious options as nitro cold brew, chocolate mocha cold brew, cinnamon bun cold brew and peppermint cold brew. Still, we recommend the salted caramel cold brew as the must-have sip at this coffee stop. You cannot go wrong with this yummy cold brew coffee with thick cream swirled in, topped with frothy whipped cream on top and ribbons of caramel drizzled atop the drink. Once you enter the shop there is no way you are leaving without a taste of their claim to fame- a delicious donut! These are like pastries you have never seen before. You can go the classic route and enjoy a Chocolate Iced donut or a yummy Blueberry Cake donut or you can take a walk on the wild side and snag a snack from the Funky Bunch section of the menu and taste a Maple Bacon, Cinnamon Toast Crunch or an Oreo Surprise Donut!
5. When you Are Searching for…Sober Sips: Coke Float, from Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar
Does anything beat an old-fashioned classic on a hot day? We don’t think so, which is why we do not miss an opportunity to recommend a visit to the rooftop bar at the Coca-Cola Store where you can kick back with a Coke Float. After you have shopped the two floors of classic Coke merchandise at this Town Center area store, take an elevator to the top of the building for beautiful views of Disney Springs. Snag a sixteen or a twenty-four-ounce coke float to enjoy as you relax. If you are looking for a cultural experience without an Epcot park ticket, purchase a float tray for just eleven dollars to try an array of sparkling and still beverages from countries around the world. These sixteen flavors are fun for sampling and makes for a unique experience during your shopping day.
