Best Drinks in the World

Whenever we go to WDW, I never wind up drinking... kinda sad but true - DH doesn't drink at all and I never wind up trying anything besides a beer with dinner. Next trip, I'm determined to try at least a few of the best out there Smile

So what are your recommendations?

I'm open to trying anything, but to give you an idea of what I usually like, I usually stick with high end beer (yes, I'm a beer snob), but I love margaritas... I have a weird reaction to wine, however, especially to reds - gives me a hangover from hell...

You will die when you try either a Grey Goose Martini Slush or the Grand Mariner Slush from France in Epcot. They are...amazing. I personally love a nice cold Strongbow from the stand in England. I am not a huge beer girl so that is my extent of beer knowledge. Mexico's La Cava Tequilla makes, apparently, amazong Margaritas. Lizzy B is our La Cava expert so I am sure she will pipe in here. If you head to the Poly they have amazing tropical drinks like the Lapu Lapu that comes in a Pineapple.

I recommend the margaritas at Cava del Tequila and the Lapu Lapu at the Poly.

As far as beer I'm usually disappointed by the selection (did you know they have NO beers on tap at Citricos for example). Rose & Crown has the decent English beers (Harp, Bass, Guiness, etc) if you like those. The darker beer at Germany is pretty good IMO (and you can get a liter!) I actually kind of like some of the Italian beers.

I've been thinking about doing up some posts on beer in the World. What kind of beer do you like?

A Grey Goose Slushie!??!?! I am SO there!

I've seen some of the Margaritas from Mexico, and so want to try them. Do they still have the Margarita Flight there? I saw something about that ages ago when they re-opened

I'm not really into dark beers like Guinness, I prefer wheat beers like Hefewiesen...

I had a good peach bellini at Via Napoli. It's peach puree mixed with prosecco (Italian sparkling wine).

The worst/best part is it doesn't even taste like alcohol. The only reason I did have 5 was because they are about 9 dollars each. The Disney Food Blog actually mentioned it today..

I had a liter of the wheat beer at Biergarten and I think I enjoyed it. It's hard to remember because:

a.) It was a liter of beer.
b.) Right afterwards I went to the Beer & Pizza tasting at Via Napoli and had even more beer. (They were very generous).

Bahahahaha!

Brad, haven't you imbibed at Raglan Road, too? I'm far from being a beer expert, but don't they offer some interesting choices, including flights?

Margaritas and tequilas all the way! My favorite is the cucumber, and you MUST get the chili lime salt! The avocado also looks interesting, but I need to know if there is actually midori in it...not a big melon fan. But they also have tequila flights and mezcal drinks. I could spend some serious $$ at this place. And the drinks are potent. Last visit, my mom and I actually shared a margarita and I could feel its effects.

I also used to love the Green Tea and Plum Wine Slushie at the Joy of Tea in China, but it's been different the last few times I've had it - salty. I need to try it again.

I'm meeting Bella for a Strongbow this spring!! And I've never had the Grey Goose slushie but I super want to try it. The Pomegranate Kirs in France are nice, too - I think they have them all year around, but I'm not sure.

I have to agree with the Grey Goose Martini Slush or the Grand Mariner Slush. My favorites!

I'm a huge fan of the "Grey Goose Slushie", but I tried many different things on this past trip.

My travel companions and I had some great drinks at the Tambu Lounge last week. In the Hurricane Glasses you see a Pina CoLAVA, coing around clockwise from them is a Tropical Mojito which was amazing, a Ginger Lemonade atthe bottom, which I traded my BFF for the Mojito, and something non-alcoholica my daughter was drinking.

The DawaColada from Dawa Bar in AK was really amazing. Vrey similar to the Pina CoLAVA but you couldn't really taste the alcohol as much.

The French Martini at California Grill was really awesome too!

Kristen, those all look excellent. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet last Friday. I was in Epcot for only three hours, spending most of my time in R&C with some co-workers. A few Black & Tans, topped off by a cider (not sure which brand, things were getting a bit fuzzy at that point!!). Hope you had fun at the 5k.

Oooo... was it the pear cider? One of my friends let me try hers and it was so delicious! No worries about not meeting. Like I always say, there's always another Disney Trip!

What's in the French Martini?

The French Martini is Skyy Vodka, Chambord, and Pineapple Juice with a splash of Roederer Sparkling Wine. You can taste the alcohol in this drink, but it's light and pleasant. This paired really really well with the Herb Roasted Chicken & Pear flatbread.

Now I want to go to Disney AND have a drink.. Not such a good thing at 8am!
Thanks everyone for the suggestions - the Grey Goose Slushy is now on my Must Try list!!! (Along with, of all things, School Bread from Norway because I never seem to get around to trying it!)

I think I'm going to have to add some drinks from the Poly to my list.... which keeps growning thanks to everyone clapping

You can bring alchohol down to the beach to watch Wishes, right? I'm thinking we might go back to Kona for dinner one night, and a drink on the beach to watch the fireworks sounds so wonderful!

I was wondering the same thing. Also, can anyone recommend a really good drink from the Poly bar?

What does a Grey Goose Slushie taste like? I can't even imagine what type of flavor it would be

Yep. You can't really taste the Grey Goose in the slushie either. So it just tastes like frozen lemonade!

Grey Goose is Vodka, a very clean and smooth vodka. When I use it with a mixer, I almost never taste it.
I think they use the Grey Goose Citron, which adds a citrus flavor to the base vodka.
The Grey Goose Slushies taste like frozen lemonade and I find them to be delish!
