The Best Alcoholic Drinks From Each 'Country' In Epcot's World Showcase

The one drink you must try at each of the 11 countries.

Drinking around the world at Epcot is no amateur hour. It should almost be an Olympic sport. It's not easy to walk 2.78 miles (assuming you start at the front of the park) in the blazing Florida sun while drinking more sugary, boozy drinks than any sane person should have in the day.

That being said, it's an experience of a lifetime (as long as you remember to drink plenty of water and have a solid meal ahead of time). Inevitably, conquering the World Showcase booze tour for the first time without research is sure to lead to some unfavorable drink orders. Not every drink on every menu is meant for every person.

That's why I'm here to give you my top pick for each country.

1. Mexico Pavilion — Fiesta Frozen Margarita from Choza de Margarita

Instagram

The Fiesta Frozen Margarita is a combination of Choza de Margarita's three frozen margarita offerings — classic lime, mango loco and wild strawberry. This drink is the perfect way to start the booze tour. It'll keep you cool and it's the perfect size for sharing if you want to start out taking it easy.

2. Norway Pavilion — Viking Coffee from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe

Instagram

This one will get you going! It's a lovely coffee cocktail with Kamora Coffee Liquor and Bailey's Irish Cream. Bonus: Try the school bread — it's delicious!

Bonus Part Two: If you're feeling risky, try Linie Aquavit from the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. This one clocks in around 80 proof, it's not for the fainthearted. I'm not personally brave enough to try this one, but I think it's worth a mention from what I've heard.

3. China Pavilion — Tipsy Ducks In Love from Joy of Tea

Instagram

A great name to match a great drink. This cocktail is unlike anything I've ever had before- cold black tea with bourbon whiskey, cream and chocolate syrup. This drink's a dream.

4. Germany Pavilion — Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen from Biergarten

Instagram

I couldn't bring you to Germany without showcasing the beer! I'm all about the unique drinks so when I saw a grapefruit beer, I had to try it. I was instantly hooked! Thankfully, it's not as hard to find grapefruit beer in the states as I thought, but there's nothing quite like sipping it out of a souvenir EPCOT glass.

5. Italy Pavilion — Bellini from Via Napoli Donkey Cart

Instagram

I've found that the beauty of Italian food and cocktails lies within simplicity. My go-to drink at the Italy Pavilion is a simple mixture of Prosecco sparkling wine and peach puree (if you haven't noticed by now, I like sweet, fruity flavors). This one is pretty to look at and wonderful to drink.

6. United States Pavilion — McKenzie's Black Cherry Hard Cider from Block & Hans

Instagram

I'm a sucker for cider. I think it's because my husband has always hated beer but loved cider, so he got me hooked. Whenever I see a unique cider on the menu, I simply have to try it. The black cherry hard cider from Block & Hans did not disappoint.

7. Japan Pavilion — Tokyo Sunset from Outdoor Sake Bar

Instagram

Of course, I skipped the sake at the Outdoor Sake Bar to get another fruity drink! This one's a real treasure, though. It's made with pineapple juice, coconut rum, banana liqueur and peach schnapps. It's also the perfect photogenic drink to make the star of your artsy Spaceship Earth photo. It's a win-win.

8. Morocco Pavilion — Spice Road Signature Sangria from Spice Road Table

Instagram

There's not much to say about this sangria except it's delicious. You can also get it white, red or sparkling, but I'm a sucker for red sangria. One of my favorite parts of this stop is that the sangria is available by the pitcher, although you may want to be careful if you're planning on finishing your journey!

9. France Pavilion — Orange Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France

Instagram

I've never been to France, but for some reason, I just can't see this Orange Slush being a common drink there. Hopefully, I'm wrong because this one's delicious! It's a cult-favorite but it's truly worth all the hype. Grand Marnier, rum and Grey Goose Orange and orange juice come together to make a lovely frozen drink.

10. United Kingdom Pavilion — Cider & Black from Rose & Crown Pub

Instagram

There are so many good options here, it's truly hard to go wrong. However, I always go back to a Cider & Black from Rose & Crown. This is a British classic that I first discovered during my first trip to the UK a few years ago. It's Strongbow Cider (my favorite) with a "shot" of blackcurrant juice. Even if you've never had it before, it's nostalgic, which I find quite magical.

11. Canada Pavilion — Ottawa Apple from Popcorn in Canada Food Cart

Instagram

We made it, last drink! This one's quite unique, too. It's cranberry juice with an apple infusion and Crown Royal Maple Whisky. Personally, I didn't know that maple whiskey existed before I saw this drink, so that was exciting. I would recommend this to any adventurous booze lovers.

Life gets tough. Life gets too much to handle sometimes, and those times make you stronger. However, right now, it seems like you have lost yourself.

It’s difficult when you catch yourself not being you. When you do something or act a certain way and just wonder, “what did I do to deserve this? Why is this happening? When will it get better?” The way you’re feeling is not so much that you’re unhappy, you just feel weird.

Your day will come. I promise you. This is just a phase.

The day you realize how much you have grown from this point in time will be your reward. It is so hard to see now, and I feel your pain.

Your light will return to you. Your pure bliss moments, they are seeking you. Your laughter where your tummy aches is in your reach.

Our moods change far too often for us as humans to understand why, but the encounters you make every day have this effect on us.

You must remember the pure happiness you experienced before your first heartbreak, before the first friend became someone you thought they weren’t, before you lost your innocence. That was a time of true joy as you had not a care in the world for the things that would harm you. Better yet, you didn’t have the option to experience them because you were just a child.

The world can be an ugly place, and your attitude towards life can change every day. One thing is for certain: you did not lose who you are internally. We all put on a face for the world. For the people who we try to impress. For the life we want to live. For the things we want to achieve.

Your definitive personality is still in the works. Believe it or not, it always will be. Times like this change us for the better even though we can’t see it.

Your happiness will return. You will be a better, stronger version of you. In fact, you will be the best version of you yet.

Once this phase is over, you will be okay. This I promise you.

Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk (Or High), Do You?

Get in the habit of safe driving practices when alcohol or other drugs are involved!

As a Peer Health Educator at SDSU, I am required to participate in various community outreach events on campus throughout the year. The most recent tabling event was with one of Well-Being & Health Promotion's partner organizations, RADD (Rockers Against Drunk Driving). The event consisted of peer health educators reaching out to students passing by and asking them to participate in our trivia game or to take an informational pamphlet.

Our trivia game was a spin-the-wheel type with questions related to drunk driving laws and general knowledge that people should be aware of when it comes to intoxicated driving. Sadly, I don't believe many people know the true dangers and risks of drunk (or high) driving. There are several life-altering things that can happen if you are driving under the influence and law enforcement gets involved. Obviously, there's a huge risk that you can physically hurt yourself, your passengers, or other people on the road. Injury can range from broken bones to death. Some may know that you will also lose driving privileges for a while, and you will probably have to spend a night in jail.

However, many people do not know that if you receive a DUI, you will most likely be automatically disqualified from many programs such as medical school, law school, any branch of the United States Armed Forces, etc. Many people also do not know that getting a DUI can cost up to $10,000 (original fines, legal fines, etc.). It can also take up to ten years to get a DUI off your record. And lastly, your BAC does not have to be over .08 to receive a DUI. Police can pull you over if you are driving strangely and it turns out your BAC is only .01. Any poor driving due to alcohol can result in a DUI.

Finally, many people do not realize that driving while high can also result in a DUI! Just because it's legal to purchase and enjoy, DOES NOT mean it is legal to drive under the influence of marijuana or any associated marijuana products! There is a .08 BAC maximum for driving under the influence of alcohol, however, there is a zero tolerance for driving under the influence of marijuana. There is no legal limit on how high you can be while driving. Any amount of marijuana can land you a DUI, even if it was from earlier in the day. Many people do not realize that the consequences for driving high are the exact same as driving drunk. You can still injure or kill people, receive a DUI, get arrested, pay thousands in legal fines, and destroy your future.

RADD is a wonderful educational program that teaches people the risks and consequences of intoxicated driving and gives incentives for designated drivers. There are ways to get involved with RADD in several areas of California, just check out their website. Also, many restaurants/bars will give discounted/free items if you tell them that you pledge to never drive intoxicated or that you are the designated driver (just mention RADD).

Intoxicated driving accidents are 100% preventable! Be a part of the solution! Go crazy and wild! Just don't get behind the wheel afterward :)
