When it comes to great beverages, it’s hard to beat EPCOT’s World Showcase, where you can — quite literally — drink around the world without ever leaving the park.
We asked our team about the best drinks you can get around World Showcase and put together the ultimate World Showcase Drink Crawl!
Now we don’t recommend hitting each pavilion in one day (that would be A LOT of alcohol), but if you’ve got time to spend at EPCOT and want to try out some new beverages, here’s the one at each pavilion that should make your must-try list!
Okay, so this was the most difficult decision for us, because we are HUGE fans of La Cava del Tequila, and we might even argue that this is where you’ll get some of the best drinks that Disney World has to offer. So we ended up choosing two drinks here — and with either, you can’t go wrong.
First up, the El Diablo Margarita has a nice amount of heat to it that we can’t HELP but love! It’s made with Tromba Blanco Tequila, Fresh Lime Juice, Agave, and Cucumber-Jalapeño Juice with a Hibiscus Salt Rim. Can you say spicy? This drink is 🔥🔥🔥!
But for those who prefer less heat, you can’t go wrong with the Avocado Margarita, aka the La Cava Avocado. It’s Tromba Blanco Tequila, Melon Liqueur, Fresh Avocado, Lime Juice served frozen with a Hibiscus Salt Rim. This drink is just so refreshing and creamy — trust us, it will surprise you in a good way!

Over in the land of the Norse, there is only one drink we feel is worthy of Mjolnir, and that’s the Frozen Viking Coffee from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. It’s made with Baileys Irish Cream and Kamora Coffee Liqueur with Coffee-Chocolate Sauce and garnished with Coffee-Chocolate Crunch.
Yes, we like our dessert in boozy coffee form sometimes. And trust us, you will, too! There is a hot Viking Coffee, but the frozen version is SO much better for those hot Florida days.

What’s not to love about a drink called Tipsy Ducks in Love? The name alone has us wanting to drink it. You can find this delicious beverage at the Joy of Tea. It’s a coffee drink made with Bourbon, Black Tea, Coffee, Cream, and Chocolate (although you can get it without the bourbon, too).
Even with the bourbon, though, this is a nice, smooth, and refreshing drink. It’s also super creamy and delicious. We think you’ll love it!

When it comes to beer, many might argue that no one does beer like in Germany. So it’s kinda’ hard to pick a favorite here, but even if you don’t like beer, you very well may love the Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen from Sommerfest. It’s also available at Biergarten!
This beer is a light, crisp, and refreshing drink with a nice hint of grapefruit flavor. But you DO need to like grapefruit to appreciate it, so keep that in mind.

Okay, so there’s only one thing you need to drink at Italy, and that’s WINE. You can get some of the world’s finest wines here, but why just get one when you can get a Wine Flight? Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar offers different wines with its flights throughout the year, and you’re sure to find your next favorite here.
You generally get three wines to try with pretty decent pours. We’ve seen red wine flights, white wine flights, a combination of the two, and even a prosecco flight! Take a look at the Tutto Gusto menu to see what they have during your visit. Try something new, or savor something familiar!

With so many new and exotic options from around the world, it’s easy to overlook the American pavilion and all it has to offer! Regal Eagle Smokehouse has several that are REALLY good, but one great one is the Tennessee Lemonade. This is one of our go-to drinks when it’s super hot out because it’s SO refreshing.
It’s Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey with Minute Maid Premium Lemonade and peach flavoring.

Although we love the regular Kaki-Gori from Kabuki Cafe in Japan, when we want a cool and refreshing beverage, we order the Sake Slushy. It’s an Alcoholic Shaved Ice available in several flavors, including Blood Orange, Coconut Pineapple, and Blackberry.
We recommend the Blood Orange — it’s our favorite! You get a little sweet AND tart, and it’s SO good.

Now let’s head over to Oasis Sweets & Sips in Morocco. And here’s what you want to get: the Frozen Mint Tea. It’s a frozen mint tea (no surprise there) with Bombay Sapphire Gin. And it is one of the best boozy drinks to have when you need to cool off at Disney World.
What’s not to love with an icy and minty boozy drink? When it’s 100 degrees out, we know what we’re drinking!

Here’s where we had to make another tough decision. It’s no secret that we love the Ice Cream Martinis you can get from L’Artisans des Glaces in France. It’s a drink AND a dessert. But in the end, we decided that we like the Grand Marnier Orange Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France just a little better, so that’s our pick!
Yes, we like slushies — they’re a tasty way to cool down at Disney World. But this one is c’est magnifique — a mixture of Grand Marnier, Rum, Grey Goose, and Orange Juice. It’s basically a grown-up Creamsicle in beverage form. You can a traditional size or a GIANT slush aptly called Le Geant Slush for a few bucks more.

While we’re popping into the UK to grab some Fish and Chips, we also like to grab one drink from the Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room. It’s the Snake Bite. This drink is made with Half Cider and Half Harp Lager.
Yes, it’s simple. But it is OH, SO good. It’s a great choice for those who might not like beer all that much, and a clear winner for those who prefer beer to cocktails.

Housed in the rustic setting of the Canada pavilion is one of our favorite fine-dining joints (and it’s probably because of that Cheese Soup), Le Cellier Steakhouse. But there are some good drinks to be had here, too. The wines are always tasty, and we love the La Fin Du Monde beer.
So there you have it — one drink you should try at each of EPCOT’s pavilions! We hope you enjoy these as much as we do! And stay tuned because we’ll keep making recommendations on the best food and drinks at Disney World!

What’s your favorite World Showcase drink? Let us know in the comments!
I loved the frozen mint tea, without alcohol, at the Morocco pavilion! I wish it came in a larger size, it was that good!
I found the Schöfferhofer at home after my November trip and was shocked to find out that it is 2.5% alcohol. It’s more of a shandy than a beer.

Love the list. Would you consider doing something similar for nonalcoholic drinks and/or snacks so those of us who choose not to drink aren’t left out of the fun? Thanks 🙂
