Hey Discrew — let’s get ready for an adventure around the World Showcase. If you’re planning your unofficial “Drink Around the World Tour” at EPCOT, you’ve come to the right place. I’m here to tell you about the absolute best boozy beverages you can find at my favorite Walt Disney World theme park so you know you’re ordering the best of the best.
So, let’s jump into Perfecting the Magic’s ultimate guide to drinking around the world at EPCOT!
All About Drinking Around EPCOT’s World Showcase
You may be wondering, what is “drinking around the world” at EPCOT? Well, it’s simple! It’s a way of meandering the World Showcase while ordering a drink in each country. You may take it as a challenge and get a beverage at every single country in the World Showcase (that’s 11 in total), or you may pick and choose. No matter what, it’s about having fun and enjoying your time at EPCOT while sipping on international-inspired beverages!
Remember that every drink on this list is grab-and-go friendly — you won’t need to snag a table-service restaurant reservation or sit down for a full meal to order these beverages. (Let’s be honest, nobody has time for that on a drink-around-the-world quest.) The drinks on this list are also available year-round, so you won’t have to count on any of the EPCOT festivals to enjoy this tour. Of course, feel free to mix in some festival booth picks if you see something you love!
Also, please note that if you plan to drink around the World Showcase, it will be a pricey experience. Most drinks average around $13 each, so your overall cost will add up if you’re buying a beverage in every country. I recommend setting a generous budget (including tax) based on the drinks you know you want to try, plus adding a little more just in case you end up sampling something else. If you want to save some cash, consider sharing drinks with a buddy — you can even bring this reusable cup to do so!
Now, let’s dive into our ultimate guide to drinking around the world at EPCOT! These are our favorite beverages in every country in the World Showcase.
Best Drink in EPCOT’s Canada Pavilion
La Fin Du Monde ($11)
Whether you start in Canada or Mexico is up to you (though we know most Disney World regulars have strong opinions about this). For this guide, we’ll start in Canada with some deliciously strong beer. It might sound odd, but trust us – head to the popcorn cart. The Canada pavilion’s popcorn cart serves a few unique beverages. There’s always the Ottawa Apple ($14), but it’s pretty sweet, so I recommend saving your liquor for elsewhere. Instead, go with the La Fin Du Monde ($11), which is quite a strong beer. If you like Belgian-style beer, this is a great pick.
Best Drink at the United Kingdom Pavilion in EPCOT
Pimm’s Cup ($13)
Continuing our world tour, we’re heading to the United Kingdom pavilion. The Rose & Crown Pub is EPCOT’s version of a classic UK pup, which we love. Here, you can’t go wrong with a Pimm’s Cup ($13). Light and fruity with hints of cucumber, this one is perfect for a hot park day. It’s relatively weaker on the alcohol side, but it offers an excellent opportunity to take it slow and make room for more potent drinks later on. If you aren’t a Pimm’s fan and want a more robust alcohol flavor, try a Guinness ($10) or the Snake Bite ($10). Both are my go-to’s, depending on the day!
The Best Drinks at EPCOT’s France Pavilion
Grand Marnier Orange Slush ($14.50)
The France pavilion is a guest favorite for a reason. It has great attractions, great food, and of course, great drinks. Head to Les Vins des Chefs de France and order one of the slushes for $14.50. Seasonal alcoholic slushy drinks are often available throughout the year (the La Vie en Rose slush is an EPCOT icon), but you can try the Orange and Citron versions year-round. You can’t go wrong with either (I’ve had both!), but the Grand Marnier with Orange Slush and Grey Goose was my winner. It will melt fast in the Florida heat, but you’ll want to drink it quickly anyway. Served ice cold with a strong orange flavor and light notes of vodka, this one is majorly delish and worth picking up!
EPCOT’s Best Drinks in Morocco
Moroccan Mule ($15)
Making our way to Morocco, stop at the bar at Spice Road Table and order the Moroccan Mule ($15). You may be tempted to write this one off as just a standard mule, but the fig vodka brings something interesting to the party. The drink tastes super unique, and you can definitely taste the fig flavor, which I love! The house-made red sangria ($13) is a solid backup option if you’re craving wine.
The Best Drink at the Japan Pavilion
Violet Sake ($8.50)
Moving onto another guest-favorite World Showcase pavilion, you’ve reached Japan. No surprise here — the Violet Sake ($8.50) reigns supreme. Find it at the Kabuki Cafe outdoor kiosk near Mitsukoshi. This drink is highly Instagram-able and delicious, a touch sweet with notes of pear. The Sake Mist shave ice beverages are also sold here for $10, and while they’re spectacular to look at and great for your social feed, I usually find their flavors to be lackluster. There are better frozen drinks around this pavilion.
The Best Drink at the American Pavilion
Frozen Mint Julep ($15)
The American Adventure pavilion will mark the halfway point of your drink-around-the-world challenge. And, unexpectedly, this location has one of my favorite drinks in all of EPCOT! Go to the outdoor bar at the Regal Eagle Smokehouse and order the Frozen Mint Julep for $15 — it’s incredible! This frozen twist on the American classic is worth waiting in an outdoor line for. But, if you’re over your personal frozen drink limit for the day, I think the Moonshine Sour is a great alternative. It’s a bit sweet, but still delicious.
The Best Wine Flight at EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion
‘Under a Tuscan Sun’ Wine Flight ($17)
We’ve reached Italy, and it’s time for wine. Head to Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar and order the Under a Tuscan Sun wine flight. For $17, this will allow you to sample three Italian wines, including a well-rounded mix of reds with oaky notes and balanced flavor profiles. Tutto Gusto has a great grab-and-go menu and lounge seating, so you can take your wine flight with you as you meander the pavilion or sit a while and rest your feet before you continue your World Showcase tour.
The Best Beer in EPCOT’s Germany Pavilion
Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen ($10.25)
The Germany pavilion (and Germany IRL) is known for beer, so naturally, we have one to suggest. The grapefruit beer is highly recommended and doesn’t disappoint, and I honestly think non-beer drinkers will love this one! Order the Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen — or simply call it the grapefruit beer — at Sommerfest for $10.25. If you’re not into citrus flavors, try the Warsteiner Dunkel ($10.25) for a more classic German beer taste.
The Best Drinks at the China Pavilion
Tipsy Ducks in Love ($13)
Once you arrive at the China pavilion, it’s time for some sweet and strong drinks! My favorite is the Tipsy Ducks in Love ($13), a chocolaty iced coffee and tea beverage with bourbon. It’s strong, and if you don’t love coffee, this won’t be your thing, but I love it, especially with added boba. An honorable mention is the Honey Hibiscus Iced Tea ($12), which is available with or without alcohol if you need a booze break. Find all of these bevs and more at Joy of Tea.
What to Drink at EPCOT’s Norway Pavilion
Frozen Viking Coffee ($14)
If you’re about ready for a midday (or midnight, depending on when you’re hanging out in EPCOT!) nap, then I’ve got the perfect solution for you. It’s time to caffeinate at the Norway pavilion! Head to the always iconic Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. Order the Frozen Viking Coffee ($14), which is, in my opinion, one of the tastiest frozen beverages in the park. It features Bailey’s Irish Cream, coffee liquor, and coffee chocolate crunch flakes on top. I love it! If you or any of your drinking buddies are craving another beer, go with the Aass Nordic Draft Beer ($10.75), a crisp and light pilsner from one of the oldest breweries in Norway. And if you’re taking an alcohol break, the frozen coffee comes non-alcoholic in the form of the Kristoff Kaffe for $5.99!
The Best Drinks in the Mexico Pavilion
La Cava Avocado ($17)
Finally, we’ve reached Mexico, and we’re saving the best for last. La Cava del Tequila is a must-try location in EPCOT whether you’re drinking around the world or not! My top recommendation here is La Cava Avocado ($17). It’s creamy, buttery smooth, and has a touch of melon flavor, making it one of the most memorable drinks in the park. If you’re in the mood for something spicy, go for the El Diablo ($16), which pairs tequila with cucumber and jalapeño. La Cava del Tequila serves over 200 tequilas and top-shelf cocktails, so you truly can’t go wrong.
