Treat yourself to the best drinks “all around the World” at Disney’s EPCOT.
The World Showcase Pavilion at Disney’s EPCOT in Orlando, Florida, has become one of the park’s most visited attractions. While Disney seems like a place for kids, EPCOT proves there is something for everyone at the “most magical place on Earth.” A popular trend for adults 21+ is to “drink their way around the World” at EPCOT. People make their way around the World Showcase Pavilion to all 11 countries, and indulge in an alcoholic beverage at each stop. Here is a list of some of my personal favorites, as well as the tastiest and most popular alcoholic beverages in each country.
La Cava Avocado
Starting in the Mexico pavilion, you guessed it, margaritas! Not just any margarita, though. Disney-goers just go wild for the “La Cava Avocado” margarita, which includes tromba blanco tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado and lime juice, and is served with a hibiscus salt rim. The drink can be described as fruity and creamy. You can find it at La Cava Del Tequila, a lounge that serves drinks and light snacks. Coming in at the most expensive price on the list, this drink will run you $17.
Frozen Viking Coffee
Served at Kringla Bakery in Norway is a drink coffee-lovers won’t want to miss. The “Frozen Viking Coffee” consists of Bailey’s Irish Cream and Kamora Coffee Liqueur with coffee-chocolate sauce. It is garnished with coffee-chocolate crunch. While this drink can be super filling, it’s totally worth it. A Frozen Viking Coffee will cost you $14.
Kung Fu Punch
If you’re a fan of sweet and fruity drinks, Kung Fu Punch at EPCOT’s Joy of Tea in China will not let you down. It’s a simple ingredient list, containing vodka, triple sec, mango and orange juice. While this drink is a smaller portion than a lot of others in the park, it still packs a punch. Some people also enjoy the Canto Loopy from Joy of Tea, but in my personal opinion that drink is very lack-luster. Personally, I’d go with the Kung Fu Punch every time. This drink costs only $11.
If you’re anything like me and want to avoid beer at all costs (especially when drinking around the World,) you’ll want to try the Mozart Liqueur at The Weinkeller in Germany. This is a sweet shot that can be compared to chocolate milk! What adult doesn’t want their own version of chocolate milk? This shot will cost you $12.
Frozen Red Sangria
This beverage is a fun twist on a traditional sangria. It’s a sangria, but in slushy form! You can find this delectable drink at Gelateria Toscana, along with delicious gelati (ice cream) and desserts. A perfect drink to wash down some zeppole! A frozen sangria from Gelateria Toscana will cost $11.
Honorable mention: Gelateria Toscana also makes their own Italian Margarita, consisting of limoncello and tequila. This wouldn’t be my first pick because I’m not much of a lemon-lover, but I know it’s a super popular option.
Not only is this the most popular drink in the United States pavilion, it’s actually one of the most popular drinks in EPCOT! This drink includes Ole Smoky blackberry moonshine, blood orange, blackberry and lemon. This is a smooth and sweet drink. It can be found at the Reagle Eagle walk-up bar and will cost you $14.
This drink is delicious and pleasing to the eye! This purple beverage found at Garden House is made with prickly pear, lime juice and sake. It’s a tart drink that’s sure to wake your taste buds right up. The Violet Sake costs $11.
This is one of my personal favorites in the whole park. The Orange Slush has Grand Marnier, rum, Grey Goose Orange and orange juice. It’s the perfect little portion, and if you couldn’t tell by this point, the frozen drinks in Disney are wildly popular. This drink costs $14.50.
The United Kingdom
The most exciting thing about the Welsh Dragon at Rose & Crown Dining Room is that it comes in a souvenir cup! Any Disney-lover could never pass up the opportunity to bring home a souvenir. Inside the drink is peach schnapps, melon liqueur, crème de menthe, orange juice and pineapple juice. It’s a fruity and fun drink for those with a sweet tooth. On the more expensive side, this drink is $16.
The perfect ending to a long day of drinking around the World. In Canada at Popcorn in Canada, you’ll find the Ottawa Apple. This is a bright red beverage made of Crown Royal whisky, maple, apple infusion and cranberry juice. The ingredients are a bit deceiving, however, considering this is a sour drink! You’d think it would be a lot sweeter, but that’s why it’s a great last stop after all of the sweet treats in the other countries. The Ottawa Apple will cost you $14.
It seems we’ve made it to the end of our list! Now, go treat yourself to some stellar drinks at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. Remember to pace yourself and have fun! Don’t forget to try some of the amazing food they have to offer while you’re at it.
We’re keeping it pretty basic in Morocco. You really can’t go wrong with a strawberry daquiri made with Bacardi. It’s sweet and refreshing, and a nice drink to have when you’ve been walking around the World Showcase for a bit. This drink will run you $15, but it’s worth every sip!
