Walt Disney World has announced a “signature” frozen drink that will be offered to guests visiting Gaston’s Tavern when it opens in New Fantasyland later this year. The non-alcoholic drink is called LeFou’s Brew and is likely to give Universal Orlando’s incredibly popular Butterbeer a run for tourists’ money.
LeFou’s Brew is named for Gaston’s sidekick from “Beauty and the Beast” and will instantly be recognizable to anyone who has visited the Cozy Cone in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure. The drink is identical Red’s Apple Freeze, but with a new twist.
It features frozen apple juice with flavors of toasted marshmallow and a generous squirt of passion fruit-mango foam on top. And it will be served in souvenir steins and goblets, pictured above.
While the flavor profile is completely different than that of the popular Butterbeer drink from Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the process for serving the beverage is quite similar, with a frozen drink on the bottom and a sweet foamy topping.
Here’s how it looks when served at Cars Land:
Cinnamon rolls will also be served at Gaston’s Tavern, which will open with most of New Fantasyland on November 19 (with a grand opening scheduled for December 6).
