What are the best drinks to get in the countries in the World Showcase in EPCOT?

Everytime that I go, all I need is to get a Frozen Margarita in Mexico, and I am done. LOL

But, what do you recommend to get at any of the other countries?

With the new tequila bar in Mexico that has a better selection that the kiosk drinks, that is my new favorite place. A good margarita should never come out of a machine and they have great ones on the rocks now.

Last week we did pints in London, slushies in France, sake shots in Japan, sangiovese in Italy, Jager shots and beer in Germany, beer in Norway and margaritas on the rocks in Mexico.

Where did you get the Jager? Was it in the restaurant? They used to sell them at the counter outside, but haven't for a long time.

Yes it was in the restaurant. My group insisted on eating there just so that they could have the Jager shots; it's been a huge bone of contention in my family since they quit them outside.

I drank around the world in EPCOT last week. A vague summery of what I had was a margarita in Mexico, beer (Karlsburg or however it is spelt) in Norway, Plum Wine in China, Safari Beer at the Outpost, Spaten in Germany, a beer in Italy (not sure what it was), Sam Adams in USA, warm Sake in Japan (warm sake is traditional but very rough when its 93 degrees out), Casa beer in Morocco, Grey Goose slushie in France, and I had a beer in both England and Canada but I dont remember exactly what they were. Moose something or other in Canada but thats all I remember.

Even though I did it by myself (my girlfriend only had a drink with me in Mexico and France) it was a lot of fun. If it is a really hot day (it was in the mid-90's last week when I did it) make sure you drink a bottle of water at least every 2 or three pavillions.

Grand Marnier Orange Slushie in France. But with the new tequila bar in Mexico, I have a feeling I won't make it to France this time! ;)

Here is a great link that shows all of the drinks at the countries.

My 2 favs are the Grey Goose Lemonade Slush in France and the Green Tea Plum Wine slush in China.

My friends and I modified our drinking around the world experience and split a drink in each country so we could try one from each country and not die...that being said, the Habibbi Daquiri in Morocco was my favorite! Grey Goose Slushy was yummy too!

Thank you for your tips everyone!

I have two cousins that just graduated college. As a surprise graduation gift, I am taking them on their very first Disney vaca. I know that this is something that they will enjoy when we go to EPCOT. :dance3:

On my previous visits with friends or fam I have tried sampling from each country, but always end up stopping after only starting in Mexico. LOL But, I think this time I am going to follow the tip of sharing drinks, so I don't end up sick by the time Illuminations starts. :sick: LOL

Does Disney provide a list that you can "check-off" as you head from country to country?

On our trip this past April we saw a guy in the Rose & Crown pub with a t-shirt he had made. On the back he had listed each country with a line after it. Each line was then filled in by the server at that country with the drink he had gotten there, their name and in some cases a hand-drawn picture (someone had drawn a moose head for the Moosehead beer he had gotten in Canada) We've seen quite a few people with their own "drinking around the world" t-shirts for each person in their group... :drinking1

The Avacado Margarita in the tequila bar in Mexico is out of this world! Black and tan in UK, kir royale in France (champagne with some berry flavored liquor in it), limoncello in Italy, wine flight in Germany (they have a great warm red wine in wintertime..perfect if it's chilly), sake in Japan (again, the warm is great if it's chilly out!) Also Plum Wine in China...

Are you paying?! Then, its COOL :cool1:

BTW: I love a few Strongbow ciders in the UK (I didn't see them mentioned here).

Heck yeah. I used to love drinking with my parents. Not only where they cool to hang out with but they paid as well. Too bad my mom died too early and my dad is now about 1200 miles away but those were great memories hangin with the folks.

Thanks for that list everyone. I have definitely learned of a few that I didn't know that there was at EPCOT.

Hmmmm, maybe next thing to try on one of the days will have to be drinking on the monorail - stopping at each resort to grab something unique to that resort. (like one of the fantastic daiquiris at the Poly)

Just for info last weekend they had a bottle of Jager displayed at the kiosk near the lagoon in Germany. So you can likely get it outside of the restaurant.

Since La Cava opened I don't touch the frozen margs from the kiosk in Mexico. (For designated drivers or teetoatalers they also have quite a good non-alcoholic smoothie)

that would sound good except Jager always makes me feel sick to my stomach. :sick: lol

the peach oolong tea has alcohol in it?? I love different teas (white tea, oolong, etc), especially flavored teas. But, if this has alcohol in it too... what could be better?? lol

DH and DS love stronbow from the UK pub. DS studied in Oxford a few years ago, so he first tried it there and now DH loves it also. I also like it very much. I have to have a grey goose slushie and my new love is a margarita from Mexico (inside at the Tequila Bar) In May I had a Blood Orange Margaritia it was fantastic.

There was another thread a few weeks ago that shared This Link (http://partythroughtheparks.squarespace.com/fun-games-park-style/2010/6/20/drink-around-the-world-at-epcots-world-showcase.html) which is an awesome card to keep track of your drinking around the world.

There's one that's regular and one that's alcoholic. It was so good!
