These are the drinks you NEED to order the next time you are in Epcot. Drinking Around the World can be overwhelming, there are plenty of options to choose from, but the real question is, what should you be ordering? I have tested many drinks around the World Showcase, and have determined that these are the drinks you need to order.
Of course, we are starting in Mexico, because it is the only right way to drink around the world – I mean, you do you, but the true Epcot people will judge you.
Of course, you have to grab a margarita when in Mexico, and I recommend heading into the pavilion and checking out La Cava del Tequila. Their variety of margaritas is unparalleled to the kiosk outside – even though they are own by the same company. The drink of choice in Mexico has to be La Cava Avocado, it is their famous avocado margarita, yes, it actually has avocado in it, however, you don’t really pick up on that flavor, it just contributes to more of a creamy texture.

Heading to Norway, you have limited options compared to some other countries. But I always recommend heading into Kringla Bakeri, their snacks are cheap and delicious, and I prefer it over the cart outside. My go-to choice is the Viking Coffee, which you can order both cold and hot. It is a combination of coffee, Kamora, and Baileys, and it is the perfect not too strong tasting spiked coffee.
Viking Coffee – Kringla Bakeri OG Cafe $13.00
China has some of the most slept on drinks in Epcot. Joy of Tea which sits right on the lagoon, is completely unsuspecting but houses some of the best drinks. Honestly, by the time you have reached China it is probably getting warm out, and the Canto Loopy is the perfect refreshing drink. It’s a combination of Cantaloupe Juice and Vodka and is a must when you pass through China.
Canto Loopy – Joy of Tea $10.50
When in Germany of course you have to have a beer, it’s the most German choice that you could make. There are quite a few beers and beer cart options in Germany, and I highly suggest picking up one of their huge pretzels, you know to soak up the alcohol. My go-to here is the Schöfferhofer Grapefruit, it is only 2.5% percent which is honestly the break your liver needs by the time you reach Germany.
Schöfferhofer Grapefruit – Beer Cart $9.50
Italy is the land of wine, and the pavilion in Epcot really reflects that, you can find wine everywhere and you can’t go wrong with it. However, my favorite beverage is seen at pretty much every festival, so you usually can find it at the festival kiosk. It’s the Italian Margarita – made with tequila and limoncello. There is something completely different about this one, and I know you wouldn’t expect to get a margarita in Italy, but I promise it’s delicious.

Things have changed recently in the American Pavilion, with the opening of Regal Eagle and the outdoor bar there. Now, I must admit I want to dig further into the bar menu than I have, but there is one clear stand out here. It’s the Moonshine Sour from Regal Eagle’s Outdoor Bar. It is the perfect combination of blackberry and blood orange, and according to the bartender, it is the most popular drink in Epcot right now.
Moonshine Sour – Regal Eagle Outdoor Bar $14.00
The Japan Pavilion hands down has the best drinks in Epcot, there, I said it. You can’t go wrong with any option in Japan, from the sake bar in the back of the pavilion to the garden house, you always can find a great option. I am the biggest fan of the Garden House and their signature cocktails, I am a die-hard Violet Sake fan, and it will always be my number one, but the Tokyo Sunset is also an excellent choice.
Violet Sake – Garden House $9.00
If you’ve never visited the bar in the Morocco Pavilion, you need to add it to your list. The theming inside is amazing, and the drinks are even better. You might some people taking shots while drinking around the world, but I highly recommend their Sangria. It is a staple in the pavilion, and you can get it at the bar inside Spice Road Table, and no you don’t need to dine there, you can just grab your drink and go.
Sangria – Spice Road Table $11.00
France is one of my favorite pavilions, and by this point, you are probably really feeling drinking around the world, so might I suggest heading to the bakery and picking up a $2 baguette. It’s a steal and by your 9th drink, you are going to need it. Now onto the main event, the drink – to me the most quintessential Epcot drink can be found in France, it’s the Orange Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France, which is a kiosk right on the lagoon. It’s a combination of Grand Marnier, Rum, and Grey Goose Orange. And if you are feeling extra, you can add an extra shot for $6.75.
Orange Slush – Les Vins des Chefs de France $11.50
When visiting the UK Pavilion, you have to venture into the Rose & Crown, it is one of the best bars to grab a drink in all of Epcot. Of course, you can always go with a beer, I am a big fan of the layered beers they serve, and they have more combinations than you would think. However, my go-to drink is the Welsh Dragon, if you read the ingredients you might question my choice, but do me a favor and just go with it.
Welsh Dragon – Rose & Crown Pub $16.oo
We have finally made it to the final drink in this Drinking Around the World Tour! Canada does not disappoint, because I believe the most slept on drink in Epcot resides here, though I am not sure if it’s slept on or because it’s most people’s 11th drink, so they probably don’t really remember. I am talking about the Ottawa Apple from Popcorn in Canada. It is a great combination of whiskey, apple, and maple.
Ottawa Apple – Popcorn in Canada $13.00
