• Walt Disney World is full of restaurants and places to grab a good alcoholic drink (Magic Kingdom excluded, of course). Some drinks are pretty standard Disney cocktails that you can find at most restaurants, others are a little more unusual and are specific to the restaurant. Here are some of my favorite drinks to get when visiting the World.

    #10: Campari and Strawberry (Todd English’s bluezoo @ Walt Disney World’s Dolphin Resort) – This drink is a apertif concoction of Campari (a bitter liquor made in Italy), Sweet Vermouth, muddled Strawberries and lemon juice topped with Ginger Beer. It’s an usual drink because it combines the bitterness of Campari with the sweetness of strawberries. This drink has a very interesting flavor and I highly recommend trying it if you are looking for something unusual and aren’t afraid of a little bit to your drink. Cost: $13

    #9: Sangria (Cape May Cafe @ Disney’s Beach Club) – I have tasted Sangria at a few different locations on Disney property. Some of them made with citrus, others made with berries, some white, some red but definitely this has been the best and had the best price. This one is red wine with citrus fruit and came in a good size glass with just the right amount of fruit slices in it. Cost: $8

    #8: Beer Flight (Raglan Road @ Downtown Disney) – This Irish Pub has some great food and drinks but I can never pass up a good beer flight from this restaurant to go along with my Irish entree. My favorite is their beer flight with Guinness, Murphy’s, Smithwicks and Harp. So if you are looking to sample some beers or can’t decide on just one, give this flight a try. Cost: $8.50

    #7: Italian Margarita (Italy Pavilion @ Epcot) – This Italian version of a margarita is nothing like it’s Mexican counterpart. It is a frozen, slushy version but the difference is that it contains Grappa, Limoncello and margarita mix. I find this to be a nice change to what you get in Mexico and very refreshing on a hot day when walking around the park. Cost: $10

    #6: Gluhwein (Weinkeller @ the Germany Pavilion in Epcot)- A seasonal drink that is served in the Christkndl Markets (Christmas Markets) of Germany. While shopping these markets this drink is often purchased along with traditional German foods. The drink is a spiced red wine served hot and can be found seasonal in Epcot. – Cost: $5.63

    #5: Seaside Martini (Flying Fish @ Disney’s Boardwalk Inn) – This beachy sounding drinks is made with Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, agave nectar with pineapple & Myer’s lemon juice. It’s a sweet drink that is perfect for starting off your meal or ending it as a dessert. Cost: $9.25

    #4: Lapu Lapu (Kona Cafe @ Disney’s Polynesian Resort) – This very popular and fun drink is made with Myer’s Original Dark Rum and tropical fruit juices served in a pineapple topped with Bacardi 151 rum. Not only does this drink have a lot of alcohol in it, but it’s fun to drink because it’s served in a pineapple. Now that is a fun way to have a drink! Cost: $13.25

    #3: Sultan’s Colada (Morocco Pavilion @ Epcot) -  This tasty alcoholic treat is sweet and delicious with rum, pineapple and coconut juice and Almond liquor. This is always a nice drink to pick up while walking around the World Showcase. Cost: $7.99

    #2: Pear Martini (Cape May Cafe @ Disney’s Beach Club) – One of the best drinks in Walt Disney World! A combination of Glenfiddich 12 years, Hendrick’s Gin, Kern’s Pear Nectar, agave nectar and fresh lime juice. It has a slight sweetness and full of flavor with top shelf liquor. Cost: $11

    and the number one drink is…

    #1: Orange Mango Fire Margarita (La Hacienda de San Angel @ the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot) – The number one drink on my list is my favorite drink I’ve found at Disney so far. It has everything you could want from a unique margarita. There is sweetness from the mango, sour from the orange, bitter from the lime and heat from the Tabasco and to top it all off, the Tajin powder on the rim just is the icing on the cake or should I say… maragrita. This wonderful margarita is made with El Mayor premium silver Tequila, Ginger liqueur, mango, orange juice, fresh lime juice, dash of Tabasco served on the rocks with Tajin powder on the rim. Next time you dine at La Hacienda de San Angel give it a try… you won’t regret it! Cost: $12.50
