With a little Disney magic, you can travel the world without the hefty cost of traveling! At Epcot you have the opportunity to see, experience, and taste the flavors of so many different countries without leaving the comfort of The City Beautiful!
With so many options to choose from, we want to help with an expert-curated guide to drinking your way around the World Showcase. (And before you start wondering, we’re starting our tour in Mexico so if you’re a start in Canada person just scroll down to the bottom and work your way back up!)
Here is our guide to drinking around the world at Epcot! 🌟
Ever heard of a morning margarita? Well, we’re making it a thing. Grabbing an ice-cold marg from Mexico should be the first stop on your list! Head inside La Cava del Tequila and grab an Avocado Margarita with melon liquor, fresh avocado, and lime juice with a hibiscus salt rim—it’s a drinking around the world staple.
If you’re in a rush to beat the line at a ride, stop by the La Cantina de San Angel quick service restaurant for frozen margaritas or sangria. Enjoy your beverage while exploring the Mexican shops and listening to the mariachi band! We never met a margarita we didn’t like—and this one is definitely our fave! ¡Arriba! ¡Abajo! ¡Al centro! ¡Pa’dentro!
If you’re not fully awake yet, there’ll be nothing stronger, or that’ll hit you harder than taking your coffee like a literal Viking! So why not head on over to Norway to get some Viking Coffee! You can get this delicious iced treat at the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe quick-service restaurant. Viking Coffee includes Bailey’s Irish cream and Kamora coffee liquor for $14.
If you’re feeling extra (or looking to beat the heat), you can also grab a frozen Viking Coffee with coffee-chocolate sauce and garnished with coffee-chocolate crunch. We also suggest snagging the Norwegian school bread if you’re hungry! Skål!
After that quick pick-me-up, we’re heading to China for some refreshing and unique creations! Over at the Joy of Tea quick-service booth, you’ll find three unique drinks the Canto Loopy, Tipsy Ducks in Love, and the Kung Fu Punch. Each offer a fun flavor profile and definitely pack a punch.
Manuveur your way through the marketplace to find a hidden drink stand in the back of the pavilion for the hardest hitting drink (and the cheapest) in the world showcase, the Bye Joe shot. This drink is a modern take on a traditional Chinese spirit and is not for the weak since it’s basically the Chinese vodka equivalent! Ganbei!
After all those fancy drinks, there’s nothing better than an ice-cold beer from the country that does it best, Germany! So if you’re in the mood for a refreshing citrusy beer, might we suggest the famous Schöfferhoffer pink grapefruit hefeweizen?
If you want to feel like you can go take down a bear, head to the Biergarten Restaurant for an extra special treat of schnapps with the Bärenjäger Honey & Bourbon. Prost!
Our fifth stop on this drink-around-the-world tour is none other than Italy! Feel classy as you walk through the cobbled streets and pristine fountains with a glass of Prosecco for, Prosecco with strawberry puree, or a Bellini!
One of our absolute favorite drinks in Italy is the Italian margarita! Here us out, this is the perfect combination of limoncello, tequila, lime juice, and triple sec. And it’s frozen so it’s perfect for beating the summer heat. Saluti!
Congratulations, you’ve made it halfway around the world, and it’s time to party like it’s 1776! Welcome to the American Pavilion, where the patriotism is strong, and the drinks are cold.
An excellent stop for a snack and a drink in America is the bar outside of Regal Eagle Smokehouse! Their number one seller, and for good reason, is the moonshine sour. It’s a mix of Ole Smokey blackberry moonshine, blood orange, blackberry, and lemon. And if you think you aren’t a moonshine fan just try it because this drink is the perfect introduction to moonshine. The frozen mint julep is another can’t miss drink if you’re a bourbon drinker. Cheers!
Just inside the pavilion sits the Garden House. This unassuming spot is the place to be in Japan. The walk-up counter offers three delicious cocktails each with their own cult-like following. The most popular is the Violet Sake. It’s a beautiful purple color and tastes just like a Jolly Rancher! If you aren’t into sugary drinks opt for the Sparkling Dragon (sake, peach schnapps, sour mix, and dragonfruit syrup) or the Tokyo Sunset (coconut rum, creme de banana, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice).
The drinks are also available at Katsura Grill just up the hill if you want a snack—we love their shrimp tempura udon—to go along with your bev! We also recommend checking out Japan’s gift shop for all sorts of Japanese goodies! Kanpai!
Simmer your senses with flavors from the Mediterranean in Morocco! Here in Morocco, you can enjoy wine, sangria, Moroccan beer, and delicious cocktails.
One of our favorites is the Moroccan Mule, with Figenza Fig Vodka, Ginger Beer, Agave, and Lime at the Spice Road Table. While enjoying your drink, shop around in their open Bazaar or even pop into the museum if you need some cool AC! b’Saha!
When you need to cool off after a hot day of drinking around the world, there’s nothing better than a refreshing slush from France! Head to Les Vins des Chefs de France for French wines, champagne, and of course slushes!
Choose between a Grey Goose Citron vodka and lemonade or try the Le Geant Slush with your choice of a lemon or orange base and a shot of Grand Marnier or Grey Goose Citron. So sit back, relax, and watch the world go by from France. À votre santé!

Take your tastebuds across the pond to one of the liveliest pubs in the UK! The Rose and Crown Pub in the United Kingdom Pavilion has classic ales, lagers, and stouts. They also serve great pub blends like half Harp and Guinness, half Boddingtons and Guinness, and Cider with black currant juice.
Our personal favorite has got to be the Welsh Dragon! Enjoy peach schnapps, melon liquor, creme de menthe, orange juice, and pineapple juice served in a souvenir cup! Cheers!
Congratulations, you’ve finally made it around the world at Epcot! And after ALL of that food and drink, if you still can top it off, what better way to celebrate than with an Ottawa Apple in Canada? Head to the Popcorn stand to grab this yummy drink with Crown Royal whiskey, maple, apple infusion, and cranberry juice.
If you’re feeling fancy, head inside Le Cellier Steakhouse for their famous Icewine Flight from the Niagara Peninsula. And speaking of Niagara, don’t forget to walk through their waterfalls in the pavilion! Sociable or Cheers!
You thought we were done? Well, before you go, there’s also a bonus stop at the Refreshment Outpost. Nestled between China and Germany, this is a great stop that offers hot dogs, seasonal offerings, ice cream, and slushies.
To quench your thirst, be sure to try the Mango Starr cocktail with Mango Puree and Starr African rum. This is also a bonus stop if you’re there at one of their many fun festivals!
