In April of 2017 my family and I visited Walt Disney World, like we do every year, but only in the last couple of years has Gaston’s Tavern been open. It’s already become one of our favorite hot spots! Having been to Harry Potter World in 2011 I was able to sample the Butterbeer that they serve, which is a very addictive frozen beverage that is very hard to replicate in real life (I’ve tried many many times…). But since trying Le Fou’s Brew, I have found that I like it just as well as frozen Butterbeer BUT it’s very easy to replicate at home.
Our first day in Orlando in April my family and I went straight to Magic Kingdom park. I was 7 months pregnant and was aware of my limitations but was too excited to be at Disney World to really respect those. So I decided to run the park about as fast as a non-pregnant person would and I paid for that dearly at the end of the day. But, my number one thing on my list was getting a Le Fou’s Brew and a giant cinnamon roll at the Park while we were there that day
The flavor combination is wild. It’s an apple drink mixed with toasted marshmallow, and a passion fruit mango foam on top. And while this isn’t a perfect replica (since the top is actually cream instead of foam), it has the exact same flavor profiles and ends up tasting almost identical to what you would get Park.

I had a hard time finding the Toasted Marshmallow Syrup in stores, but I did find it on Amazon. I’ve added a link here as well as some other items I used in the video (affiliate links).
