Epcot's Alcohol: Drinking Around at the Booze Counters & Carts
If you're over 21 and without offspring, Epcot is the ideal Disney destination. After all, their 11 international pavilions feature alcoholic treats from the countries of origin. From Jagermeister to champagne, you can get your buzz on all over the world.
Here's Short Order's round up of the best drink choices for your Epcot adventure. Here's to #drinkingaroundtheworld.
Mexico: Pretend your toes are wiggling in the sands of the Riviera Maya, and suck down a frozen margarita. They come in fruity flavors like lime, strawberry and mango.
Norway: Score a Carlsberg beer or a shot of Aquavit. "Take the shot without making a face and you're a true Viking," quips the beer wench. Challenge accepted.
China: The Joy of Tea stand serves up plum wine and Mango Green Tea Slushies. Much better than the hot tea you're used to drinking with your Chinese cuisine, yes?
Germany: An Altenmunster Octoberfest, Radeberger Pilsner and, yes, that evil brown concoction known also as Jagermeister are your roads to a Bavarian blackout.
Italy: Shoot the frozen lemon liqueur, Limoncello, or, if feeling a little fruitier (this is the magical world of Disney, after all) - a Peach Bellini.
United States: Sam Adams it up, American-style. In the words of founding father Ben Franklin, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." We'll drink to that.
Japan: Sake sake sake BOMBS. Ok, so they don't sell these concoctions already assembled, but you can score the two items the equation requires at the Kaki Gori kiosk...
Morocco: Recreate an Arabian night - complete with trench coat, Bogart-inspired fedora and a cold Casablanca Beer.
France: A Grey Goose Citron slush or glass of champagne will have you oui-ouing in no time.
The UK: Harp Lager or Bass Ale will get you buzzed, British-style. So if you get drunk and start quoting obnoxiously from The Office, just make sure it's the Ricky Gervais version.
Canada: Moosehead, Labatt Blue or Molson are your best bets for posing as a citizen of our neighbor to the north.
Rules of the game: take your time, eat and bring moolah -- a boozy trip around the globe doesn't come cheap.
