Drinking around the world at EPCOT has become a well-known and somewhat iconic activity for adults while visiting Walt Disney World. It has made “The Happiest Place on Earth” become a true statement for people of all ages, not just children. But with 11 pavilions and dozens of bars, finding the right drinks on your visit to the park can be a bit overwhelming, even for seasoned guests.
That’s where we come in! My boyfriend Jared and I run a new but exciting Youtube Channel, Jared & Molly, that gives you an expert opinion on all things Disney. You could say we’ve had our fair share of experiences drinking around the World Showcase. Here are some of our favorite staple drinks that are sure to please everyone in your crew.
First check out the vlog we made highlighting our five favorite drinks from EPCOT’s World Showcase! Spoiler alert: Jared had a tough time with the tequila flight.
First up on our list is the Ottawa Apple from the Canadian Pavilion. This concoction includes Crown Royal Maple Whiskey with an apple infusion and cranberry juice, served over ice. Though I usually don’t find myself drinking whiskey, I find this drink to be absolutely delicious! It’s a unique refresher in the Florida heat that is sure to give your buzz a kickstart. This whiskey beverage can be found at the popcorn cart at Le Cellier. If you need a snack to go along with this beverage, we recommend the Maple Popcorn that is sold at the stand as well.
Up next in the France Pavilion we have the Grey Goose Citron Lemon Slush. Whenever we have a picky drinker in our group, this is our go to beverage to get their drink on. This surprisingly tart slush is served in an elegant martini glass and is sure to please any adult over the age of 21. For those looking for something on the sweeter side, they also sell a Grand Marnier Orange Slush at this location that tastes just like a creamsicle! This beverage is sold at the little champagne kiosk across from Les Chefs de France.
For our next beverage, we’re going to skip on over to Italy. If anyone wants to hop on board the wine train, we recommend the Italian Sangria. This refreshing blend of Italian red wine and fresh fruit will make you feel like you’re actually walking through the streets of Italy. However, the best part has got to be the price, only ringing in at $8! Find this beverage at the Gelati kiosk outside Il Bel Cristallo.
Our next stop brings us to the German Pavilion’s Weinkeller. Though this is technically considered a merchandise location, they also sell alcoholic beverages! The Schofferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen is a surprisingly tasty twist on classic german beer, and is great for sipping on a hot afternoon. This beer can also be found at several kiosks and dining locations in Germany as well.
For the final beverage in our line up, we figured we’d go out with a bang. La Cava de Tequila is a fun little bar tucked in the back of the Mexico Pavilion and carries some of the best tequilas on Disney property. If you’re brave enough, you’ll want to try La Cava Flight, which includes a Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo Tequila. All tequila flights are served with salt, lime, and a salsa shooter to help get it all down. Of the two of us, Jared is the one who usually ends up walking out with a tequila flight. If you’re looking for something a little less…aggressive, we would suggest the Blood Orange or La Cava Avocado Margarita to end your world tour.
