Oh. Thank you for that link. I will definitely have to check it out.

Turning 21 the day we leave for our trip in January. I'm planning to have my first drink at WDW.

I just read that having a teaspoon of oil (yuck) before having an alcoholic bev. helps absorb the alcohol. I am almost 50 and have never heard that before. Any thoughts? Also, for this thread's OP, be careful drinking in hot weather, hits ya pretty quick. :-)

A Long Island Iced Tea will put you under the table for sure.

That being said, I'll suggest anything sitting by the pool at your resort of choice!

I'm proud of you for waiting this long for your first drink...there is way too much alcohol abuse by teenagers these days
I was also thinking about the Rosa Regale as my first drink. I will for sure not over-indulge on alcohol. I don't want it to seem like I am going to WDW just for the alcohol. I just want to have fun, make memories, and have new positive experiences. Yeah, there are lots of alcohol abuse by teenagers, and I try not to become a statistic. Thank-you for your kind words.

loads of nice drinks in epcot...pint of guiness (hey im british lmao, and its an aquired taste!)
if not the french grey goose slush is yummy
the Lapu Lapu at the poly is amazing (tho i drank mine rather quickly as i was thirsty whilst waiting for the allergies chef to visit our table at ohanas.... dh thought me trying to play sober was really funny!! (i dont recommend it!!

as for drinking too much, wdw has a zero tollerance of drunken behaviour - we followed i bachelor party round the world in 2010.... it was like watching james bond, wdw security staff are dressed as tourists, and they swope and removed them in minutes, and they were a big group..... u dont want to get kicked out lol!!
Thank-you for the kind words! And your kids will definitely be level-headed! I am sure of it. I am glad that WDW has that zero tolerance rule. It should be all about safe fun and making wonderful memories. I will definitely not end up like that bachelor party.

Gotta say, my first drink was eerily like yours, enough so that I gagged when the MD reference came up!lol I would also say a Rose Regale, alcoholic but smooth and tame.

I definitely want to relax poolside with a drink. Sounds great!

For a first drink you need to decide if you lean towards something sweet or a bit more tart. I can only handle a sweet drink here or there before I've had enough. So I lean towards tarter drinks. For a sweet drink try a piña colada or a BBC by the pool. there is a lava colada that is half piña colada and half strawberry daquari. For a more tart drink go for the Grey Goose slush in France or a traditional margarita in Mexico. There are just so many choices. Every resort has a drink menu and some of their own specialties. I'm not sure where you are staying, but the best pool drinks on site are at OKW. They still hand mix and blend every drink.

The Grand Marnier slush in France at Epcot would be a wonderful first beverage! It isn't overly strong (just perfect) and has a nice fruity orange flavor, but you can definitely taste the alcohol in it. I loved it! I didn't try the Grey Goose one but most people like both of the slushies.

Definitely do not get a Lapu Lapu! They are very, very, very heavy on the alcohol! It was so much so that it wasn't even enjoyable to drink...well, my husband enjoyed himself...lol

I discovered the Pina Colava on our trip in January and ended up having one at almost every dinner soooooo good! And not strong it all. I think it's basically a pina colada with bacardi razz and raspberry puree. My DH really likes the Magical Star Cocktail, but that might've been because of the glow cube he got with it

If you like sweet and tart together try the Eco-tini. It is made with Acai spirits, which aren't too strong, and has lemon and ginger, among other things. It is served with a cool dried Acai berry bracelet. You get a souvenir, suitable for man or woman, to remind you of your first drink!
Where was this drink ,the wife is intrigued
