Drinking and eating around Epcot is super fun, but it can also be pretty overwhelming with all the options you have. I'll take you through each country with drink recommendations (and some things to avoid). As a travel planner, I did my research on all the recommended drinks and tried them all out for you. We're going to go counter-clockwise around the countries of Epcot, but you could definitely go the other way around too!
Great way to start off is with an easy drinking fruit beer that is from Hamilton, Ontario. This one is a special during the International Flower and Garden Festival which is going on until July 5th, 2021. No worries though, there are plenty of other Canadian based beers to get when the festival is over. Here's the Collective Arts Brewing Blackberry Fruit Beer found at Northern Bloom. As a bonus, we got the Griddled Maple Pound Cake which was amazing!
We couldn't decide on one beer in England, so why not get two for one with a Black and Tan!? Bass Ale on the bottom, Guinness on the top. We got this drink at the Rose & Crown Pub. Also, the fish and chips from the Yorkshire Fish Shop are a MUST. Its my favorite quick service in all of Epcot.
This is one of the most popular drinks to get when drinking around the world at Disney, and for good reason! On really hot days, it is super refreshing. It's the Grand Marnier Le Geant Slush from Les Wins des Chefs de France.
As a bonus for France, we got this Tarte aux Oignons Caramélisés et Chèvre (A goat cheese tart with caramelized onions on a flaky pastry crust). It's again a part of Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival this year.
This one was good, but nothing to really remember. The Mahiarita from Spice Road Table which had Fig Brandy, agave, lime juice, and pomegranate seeds. Next time, the Moroccan Mule might be the move.
The Kabuki Cafe has this Sake Mist. You can get different flavors of sake poured over shaved ice. This one was blackberry, and was a great choice!
I got this blackberry mooshine cocktail from Regal Eagle Smokehouse. It was tasty and a pretty color, just again, nothing really to remember.
I'm not really sure why I ordered this in Italy; it wasn't great. It was an espresso sambuca, and I guess I was expecting some sort of espresso martini or a mixed drink. I didn't realize it was just a shot on ice (not to mention, it was over $15). I don't recommend unless you really love sambuca.
As you can see from the picture, I loved this beer so much I drank about half of it before I remembered to take a picture. It's a grapefruit hefeweizen called Schofferhofer. It's not too sweet like some fruity beers, but also not too bitter like a grapefruit.
We got the Canto Loopy from the Joy of Tea in China. Definitely stir it up a bit before you drink it. Once you do, the cantaloupe flavor is great. It's not something I usually find in a drink, so I was excited to try something new!
Well... I think the fact we forgot to take a picture of our drink in Norway, speaks for the options in Norway being not so great. There's only one place to get anything to eat or drink in Norway during Covid right now and that's Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. We got the Nordic Draft Beer. It was fine; it was a beer. They also have a Viking Coffee, which sounded great, it was just a little to late for caffeine!
This one is expensive at around $17, but is sooo worth it. It's the La Cava Avocado Margarita. And no, it does not taste like guacamole. Don't get any of the super sugary margaritas outside, head inside to La Cava del Tequila to get this one of a kind drink.
