We had so much fun getting to check out the Morimoto Sakura Festival kickoff by attending the Crooked Can Happy Hour! Morimoto Asia is adorned with the beautiful pink Cherry Blossoms of the Sakura tree, making it the perfect spot to snap a pic!
As we headed upstairs for the Crooked Can Happy Hour, we were greeted with the amazing scents of the Pan-Asian bites that accompany the delicious Morimoto-exclusive Crooked Can Sakura Kolsch. In an incredible partnership, Morimoto Asia has partnered with the amazing local Crooked Can brewery to bring us a delicate floral beer with the perfect spring flavor.
We were even able to meet with some of the Crooked Can crew to chat about the partnership with Morimoto Asia. As a local, I absolutely love that Morimoto partners with and supports this incredible local business! Side note: If you have an extra day in town, or are local, be sure to check out Crooked Can Brewery in Winter Garden for amazing brews, bites, live music, and a friendly place to hang out with your fur-babies (dogs are welcome at Crooked Can Brewery!).
Throughout our evening, we were able to experience the incredible Sakura Kolsch, a Mango Kolsch, and three various Kolsch cocktails including the Cherry Shandy, Sakura Spritz, and Tequila Lemonade Kolsch. So delicious!
In addition to the Kolsch collection, we were delighted with a variety of Pan-Asian bites, including an amazing Summer Spring Roll with shrimp, a delicious Chicken Satay with a scrumptious peanut sauce, Sticky Rice Balls with shrimp, a savory Pork Slider with a cherry blossom slaw, and the cutest Mochi with bean paste!
One of my favorite features of the Sakura Festival has to be the incredibly photogenic Cherry Blossom Martini! The prettiest shade of millennial pink, this cocktail is what Cherry Blossom dreams are made of! It tastes like a light, refreshing spring breeze, with the perfect floral balance of flavors. It has definitely made my list of favorite cocktails on Disney property!
The Morimoto Sakura Festival runs until April 15th. Will you be attending?
