What is the Leaping Leprechaun made of at Epcot?

The Leaping Leprechaun at Epcot’s Rose & Crown Pub is a grand way to begin the weekend. This lucky concoction integrates Myers’s Platinum Rum, Skyy Vodka, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Melon Liqueur, and Sweet-and-Sour topped with Sprite®.

It has as taste reminiscent of the classic Midori Sour cocktail, but not as sweet and with a smooth finish.

What to pair the Leaping Leprechaun with at the Rose & Crown Pub?

I recommend enjoying this Epcot drink with the Sausage Roll and Chips. This dish includes ground pork with apples, herbs in a flaky pastry roll served with chips and pickled onions.

The sweetness of the cocktail along with savoriness of the Sausage Roll and Chips compliments the Leaping Leprechaun beverage.

Final Thoughts

If you’re ever in Epcot, be sure to try out the Leaping Leprechaun inside the U.K. Pavilion. This delightfully, tasty spirit can be purchased for around $18.00 with a souvenir cup.

I recommend declining on the souvenir cup so that you can save a couple of dollars.

It’s also a great year-round beverage for Epcot guests. Just be sure to drink responsibly.
