Cocktails From El Artista Hambriento: Epcot International Festival Of The Arts

I was over at the Disney Food Blog reading The Best of the Fest: What to Eat at the 2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts! when I came across two beautiful cocktails that I knew I had to share. There is simplicity in the presentation, but at the same time they speak to the art of Mexico in a unique and poignant way. These two drinks from El Artista Hambriento (The Hungry Artist) pay tribute to artists Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera.

Frida's art was inspired by post-revolutionary popular Mexican culture. She brought a bright and colorful folk art style to her paintings, with a mix of realism with fantasy. Her self-portraits made her one of the most recognized faces of Mexico in the 20th Century. At El Artista Hambriento, the mixologists from La Cava del Tequila designed two drinks bright and cheerful in their color - marked simply with the art of this extraordinary pair.

On to the drinks! First up is the Frida Guava Margarita, which I've only been hearing so-so reviews of. The pre-mixed cocktail is served at ambient temperature, and goes down easily if sweet guava is your thing. The drink is served in Disney's familiar frozen martini glass, decorated with an edible image of Frida floating on top.

Diego Rivera was a master artist in his own right. He's known for taking art out of the galleries and into the public domain with rich murals depicting the life of the working class. The Diego Passion Margarita On The Rocks is getting the best reviews of these two Hungry Artist drinks. The cold cocktail is refreshing, straightforward, and said to be easily one of the best cocktails of the festival. It's bright color is complimented with a miniature of his masterpiece simply titled Flower Seller.
