1. Mexico’s Blood Orange and Avocado Margarita’s from La Cava
Okay, so this is a tie for me. I appreciate both famous margaritas found inside Mexico at Epcot. There is a margarita stand outside of the Mexico Pavillion and while they serve fantastic margaritas they are not as great as the ones served inside La Cava. I’ve waited in line out the door for almost an hour on my Birthday last year to get this margarita – yes, it’s that good. If there’s a line for something I suggest trying it at least once. The staff inside La Cava are fantastic and always very generous with the tequila. You won’t need more than 1 of these margaritas in my opinion. They also offer a tequila flight which I love and partake in on special occasions. On Disney days without the kids (adults do Disney), I find it hard to not stop at La Cava for one of these margaritas. The avocado margarita is served frozen and the blood orange is served on the rocks with a spicy salt rim and orange flower on top. I sway toward the blood orange but can’t neglect the perfection of the avocado either.
2. Grapefruit Beer from Germany
My Disney friend suggested this beer and I waited awhile to try it because I didn’t think it would be as wonderful as she said. But oh my goodness was I ever wrong! This is one of my favorite beers and thankfully it is served year-round in Germany at the cart across from the pavilion. It’s yummy and perfect to sip on during the Spring and Summer months. I also find it hard not to pause by the German performers with this beer in hand without joining in on a song or two. If you’re not a big beer drinker this one is still worth the trial. One of my best friends doesn’t enjoy beer and said she didn’t mind sipping on this one which was shocking for her! Yay Germany beer!
3. Trader Sam’s Shrunken Zombie Head
If you’ve not experienced Trader Sam’s at Disney’s Polynesian Resort you are truly missing out on one epic experience. The venus is small and often there’s a wait to get inside (I suggest getting there when they open) but well worth the wait. The room has low lighting and so much theatrics. If you’re game for sarcastic staff, themed drinks that are delivered in the most unusual way, and strong drinks then Trader Sam’s is a must try. Without giving anything away I was shocked when my shrunken zombie head was delivered and I couldn’t stop giggling. Such a fun girls night experience and I can’t wait for the next one!
4. Run Disney’s Raspberry Rose Beer
Run Disney offers a variety of specialty drinks, bites, merchandise, and photo opportunities that you don’t find in any other spot at Disney World. The exclusive offerings are just one part of what makes Run Disney one of my most favorite Disney events. During my recent Run Disney event, I stopped to try the raspberry rose wheat beer and oh my goodness was it good. I loved this beer so much I went back to the Run Disney Expo to have a second one before they closed down the event completely on Sunday when the races were over. You don’t have to partake in a run at Disney to visit the expo and try their special beer options and race-exclusive merchandise. Run to the next event just to sip and shop!
5. Millennial Pink Champagne from Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs.
This drink was released a while back and I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying it a handful of times. The rose dusted Minnie topper is actually made of white chocolate and truly is like icing on the cake. The champagne does not disappoint and you’ll only need one glass to do the trick. The millennial pink champagne is perfect for birthdays and special occasions. I recently celebrated a friend’s birthday there and we made a super cute video of us sipping our drinks as a group. This is the perfect Disney level celebratory drink around!
While Disney offers a lot of drinks for adults these are my top 5 (for the time being). I’ve tried almost every drink in Epcot over the years and while I enjoy the Food and Wine sips nothing beats the drinks that you find year-round in some of the countries. There is also a pear cocktail offered in the Animal Kingdom near Asia that is noteworthy as well. Disney for adults is such a fun way to explore Disney. Girls night, date night, moms night out… I suggest the monorail crawl, dining reservations, and Disney Springs for those fun nights. I’ll continue trying new Disney adult beverages and report back soon, Disney friends. Cheers!
