La Cava del Tequila
As you know, La Cava del Tequila in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion is one of my favorite pit stops on my way “around the World.”
And I was excited to see a few new margaritas on the menu when I made my last visit a few weeks ago!
A Frozen Coffee Margarita has been added for $13 (building on the popularity of their regular coffee margarita), and an Azuñia Organic Skinny Margarita is now on the menu at $14!
La Cava Skinny Margarita
I’ve become a bit of a connoisseur of skinny margaritas recently, since so many of them are popping up on menus around the country. (By the way, the reason they’re called “skinny” is because they’re supposed to have fewer calories than other standard margaritas — usually due to the lack of sugary margarita and sour mixes as fillers.)
Most are sharp and biting, and some are slightly metallic, but I haven’t really found one that I love. So I was interested to see what La Cava could do with the recipe.
Well, not surprisingly, the Cava skinny margarita is the best one I’ve had to date. You’d think I’d have learned by now to trust the experts.
The flavors were well-balanced, and the first sip wasn’t too sour or metallic the way it can be with many skinnies. I also didn’t get a strong or strange aftertaste. Basically, this tasted like a margarita…not like a “diet” margarita. Very enjoyable, and even if the calorie count still isn’t all that friendly, at least your indulgence isn’t in vain.
New Cava Eats
Also new at La Cava these days is a dip trio combo for $14. Chips are served with salsa, queso, and guacamole…and you know how I feel about that queso…
As always, Cava is one of our favorite places in Epcot. And while Tutto Gusto in Epcot’s Italy is a close second for last minute, incredible eats, that Mexico hideaway still holds a place in my heart.
