I would have to say that one of the most popular things to do at Epcot’s World Showcase is what’s called “Drinking Around the World”. It’s a challenge that my group of friends love to do at least once a year where you try to have one drink at all 11 countries in the world showcase…yes all in the same day. Not an easy task to say the least. And since this quarantine is kind of putting a wrench in our plans, I decided to become my own personal bartender and start making these famous Epcot drinks myself. My preference is to always start on the Mexico side of the World Showcase, so let’s start there.
Mexico: Aguacate, aka the Avocado Margarita
This is considered to be healthy, right? It’s made from avocados!!! This is personally one of my favorite margaritas in the Mexico Pavilion. It’s smooth and sweet, and you can find this drink inside at La Cava del Tequila.
- 2 oz tequila blanco
- 1.5 oz melon liquor (i.e. Midori)
- 1 oz orange liquor (i.e. Triple Sec)
- 1.5 oz agave nectar
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp hibiscus salt
- Mix all the ingredients in a blender with 3/4 cup of ice and blend until smooth.
- Serve in a margarita glass lined with hibiscus salt.
Stay tuned for the next drink around the world: Norway.
