Drinking around the World at Epcot
If you're going to attempt drinking around the World at Epcot's World Showcase, be sure to eat first -- or indulge in some eats as you're drinking-- some good food certainly won't be hard to find.
Also, be sure to drink plenty of water and locate the restrooms on your map beforehand. Take your time -- it's certainly not a race. Take a whole afternoon and evening to make your trip, and cap it all off with a viewing of IllumiNations. And have a designated driver, of course!
Starting from the left, and going clockwise, you'll start out at:
Mexico. We recommend a stop at the La Cava del Tequila inside the Mexico pavilion to get your trip around the World Showcase started. Try one of several unique margaritas, or a tequila flight -- if you dare!
Stop two is Norway. Hop on The Maelstrom, then grab a Carlsberg beer from the beer cart.
Your next stop is China. The Joy of Tea stand has several alcoholic drinks available -- try a Mango Gingerita or a Green Tea Plum Slush for a yummy treat.
Now, you'll find yourself at Germany. Head into Sommerfest for a big Oktoberfest beer -- to us, there's no better beer than German. Wash it all down with a shot of Jagermeister, perhaps? Maybe not, because you still have seven more countries to go...
Stop five is Italy. Grab a table at Via Napoli and order a pitcher of Moretti or La Rossa beer, or a pitcher of Sangria. If you haven't eaten yet, do it here. The pizza is to die for -- we highly recommend the quattro formaggi.
Almost halfway done, stop six is The American Adventure. The Fife and Drum Tavern and the Liberty Inn have Sam Adams and good ole American Bud Light on tap. Nuff said. I give you permission to skip if you'd like to power on through.
Lucky stop number seven is Japan. Stop by the Kaki Gori food cart for sake, plum wine or Kirin draft beer.
Next on your tour round the World Showcase is Morocco. The Tangierine Cafe has several drinks to choose from -- try some Moroccan wine, imported Casa beer, or a Tangierine Cocktail or Daiquiri.
Stop nine on your trip is France. Make a beeline for the Les Vins des Chefs de France cart. This is where the legendary Grand Mariner Orange Slush and Grey Goose Citron Lemonade Slush are served. There's also plenty of French wine to choose from, too.
Cheerio! You've made it to stop 10, United Kingdom. The Rose & Crown Pub is your destination here. Try one of their half-and-half pub combos -- The Golden is half Harp Lager and half Bass Ale, the Black and Tan is half Bass Ale and half Guinness, and the Snake Bite is cider topped with a Harp Lager. There's also Scotch Whiskeys, Cognacs, Ports and more.
We'll wrap things up north of the border in Canada. The Snack Cart here has the Torontopolitan - Iceberg vodka, Chambord, cranberry and orange juice. There's also Canadian beer, like Moosehead and La Fin du Monde.
