Where do you find a Great Disney Cocktail!?

Do you have a drink that you dream of getting back to at Walt Disney World? Is it a French Martini at California Grill? The Lapu Lapu at Tambu Tambu Lounge? A Grand Marnier Slushie from France? Or maybe a yak Attack from the Animal Kingdom?

What's your favorite Disney Cocktail and where can we find it?!

I have a lot of Disney drink favorites, but if I had to pick one I think it would be the Italian Margarita from Via Napoli. It's sweet, tart, and refreshing with a kick that will sneak up on me if I drink it too fast!

I'm mostly a wine drinker, and I love the kir at Les Chefs de France. Several years back we also sampled some sake at Epcot's Japan pavilion, and we especially enjoyed one called Wakatake. Hope they still have it.

I haven't had a straight Kir (white wine), but I have been known to enjoy a Kir Royale (bubbles). What a great cocktail of Champagne and Creme de Cassis. I believe that they use Pommery Champagne in the France Pavilion, but you can get them in other locations as well!

I second this drink! Also the Grand Marnier slush at the wine kiosk in France at Epcot. And a spicy margarita at the bar at the Polynesian, but I can't remember the name.

I can't do Tequila so I can't speak that, but have you checked out the reviews over at Disney Food Blog? AJ loves a good Margarita!

Jess, Disney has some fun mocktails too! There's a blog post coming up about them.
Have you tried any of them? Do you have any fun Disney Drinks w/o alcohol that you look forward to?

I did the margarita flight a couple of different times at La Cava and I'm sure the jalepeno was one of them. I remember liking all of them but one; I think it was pineapple and too sweet for my taste. So, I liked the jalepeno. My favorite by far was the avocado margarita though. So smooth, a slight hint of melon, and sweet without being too much.

The Victoria Falls Mist at Animal Kingdom Lodge was incredibly tasty and very reasonably priced. I'm guessing it's one of their signature drinks since the bar is Victoria Falls.

The Zebra Domes (dessert) at Animal Kingdom Lodge could be counted as a drink since it has alcohol in it. I love those little guys!

The Lapu Lapu at the Polynesian is a must-have drink and I'm not even going to say why to those who have never ordered it. It came as a bit of a surprise to me. Must have!

Well, now that I know a margarita flight is an option...

The margarita flight is no more. I just came back from WDW. La Cava still does have its tequila flights, however.

I found an interesting drink in Japan at the World Showcase. It's in the shop below the restaurants and it's a sake champagne...cold and bubbly. I got it just for fun, but liked it very much. It tastes exactly like sake, but it's more fun.

The cafe at the top of the gardens has good hot sake. We were up there on a very cold night (Orlando standards) in early February and it was served absolutely piping hot...really warmed me up and tasted great. That outdoor section just before Illuminations is empty and it's very beautiful to sit there...soft, Japanese music, nice low lighting, secluded. Romantic!

I like them all. very partial to those vodka slushies in France.

A few years back they had a free Sam Adams beer tasting during F&W at Epcot. They had all these samples to try. The sitting I went to was not full so they let me have the samples of all the no-shows. That's probably the first and last time I'll get drunk on the mouse's tab.

When I was there in September we had a drink outside of Chef Mickey's while we waited to be let in, and the bartender gave us a drink that wasn't on the menu yet, and he could not tell us the name of it. They had just learned how to make it that morning and it was still a secret. It was for the Halloween festivities, and it was delicious! I wish I knew what it was, but I could go for one of those right now. Also, a Long Island Iced Tea by the pool at the Contemporary (because it's a Long Island, and I'm by the pool. Both awesome)

Vodka slushies in France are a favourite of mine. As is the Sake bar in Japan.

The Comet at the Sci Fi Drive In is not bad either. Even comes with those glowing cues which we still use at home when we leave. My wife likes the Space Monkey (Blue Margarita) at the Sci Fi as well.
