Top 5 Disney World Alcoholic Drinks

What goes along with eating, is drinking! I like to enjoy a couple of alcoholic beverages on vacation! 

Many people are surprised to know how much booze there is to drink at the World! You can now get alcohol/beer at every park! In fact, just this past year, Magic Kingdom lifted their "dry" ban. The park used to be dry meaning no alcohol found anywhere! Now, you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer during dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. Epcot is definitely the park to drink at though. Epcot is where you can drink 'around the world' and where you will find drinking teams at various times during the year!

So, since I like to endulge in some beverages, I present you my top 5 Disney Alcoholic Beverages.

#5 Forever Young
This is a martini that is on the Disney standard drink menu that you can find at most all table service restaurants and bars. I enjoyed this drink on my past trip in January. This drink has Tito's Handmade vodka, Cedilla Acai liqueur, muddled blueberries, agave nectar and fresh lemon juice. It is delicious because of the middle blueberries at the bottom. It is sweet but not too sweet and not too strong tasting.

#4 Superfruit margarita

This is another beverage that is found on the standard drink menu. The drink menu has a collection of different margaritas. This marg has Tres Generaciones organic plata tequila, VeeV Acai spirit, pomegranate and house-made sweet & sour topped with lemon-lime foam. What made this drink was the pomegranate and the lemon lime foam. There is a fad going on at WDW with foam on drinks and here is an example. It was delicious! The margarita is sweet and the foam a bit sour. Perfect complement.

#3 Blood Orange Margarita
Another of the drinks with foam, the blood orange margarita can be found at La Cava del Tequila which is a little hole in the wall place located in the Mexican pavilion. It is one of the best kept secrets! I also have tried the jalapeno margarita and the avocado margarita from there and this one was the best. This one has El Mayor Premium silver Tequila, triple sec, a sweet-tart mix of blood orange juice and hibiscus syrup, served on the rocks with hibiscus Himalayan salt rim and wildberry foam. It is pretty potent as are all of the margaritas from here.

#2 Grey Goose Slush
This is a frozen slush from the France pavilion at Epcot. This is made with grey goose citroen vodka with some sort of lemonade mix. It is so refreshing on a hot day! You can barely taste the alcohol with the tart lemon taste. I could have so many of these. Even my boyfriend, who doesn't drink, loves these slushes!

#1 Lapu Lapu
You can get this beauty at the Polynesian resort and can order it at 'Ohana, Kona, or the Tambu lounge. Now, I have to admit, I might like this so much because it served in an actual PINEAPPLE, but the drink is pretty good too! Made with Myers's Original Dark rum and tropical fruit juices served in a fresh pineapple topped with Bacardi 151 rum. Now this drink is potent!! You can definitely feel the effects soon after drinking it. This isn't for the faint of heart, but it is delicious. And the whole pineapple thing is awesome! Warning- this thing will set you back $13.50!
Disney has many other drinks for those who aren't into fruity drinks. They have lots of beer, especially in the World Showcase. If you are in to drinking I recommend a "pub crawl" around the World Showcase booths/restaurants.
