You know why I love my job writing for TouringPlans.com? I get to talk about things I love. Disney attractions, Disney food, Disney shows, and of course, drinking in Disney. Right now, it’s grown up time. For those of you adults heading to Walt Disney World with a goal of trying something new, why not make a stop to Epcot’s very own tequila bar?
The Mexico pavilion houses La Cava del Tequila (menu). In case you don’t know much about the place, check out my previous article on the beautiful bar. Are you acclimated? Alright, good. I have to tell you about all of the new things going on at La Cava that you may or may not know about.
First of all, can I just make you all aware that the folks at La Cava now operate the margarita stand just outside of the Mexico pavilion? That’s right! No more uninspired margaritas. You can get really delicious concoctions very quickly if you don’t feel like going inside to the bar. On top of frozen margaritas, you will also find chilled tequila shots and a few margaritas that are served on the rocks. I personally suggest the Milagro Pomegranate Margarita. Fantastic!
Let’s head inside to the bar and visit the awesome bartenders that know how to treat their customers right. For you margarita and/or coffee lovers, you MUST try the new Frozen Coffee Margarita made with mezcal. Even my mom, the tequila skeptic, was insisting that this was the best alcoholic beverage she’s ever had. It’s great for those who don’t want to taste the alcohol but love anything coffee flavored.
For my fellow tequila fiends, the Kah tequila offering is where it’s at. There are many choices for you to try. The Kah Mini Bottle of Silver tequila is only $18 and is also a souvenir! You get to keep the gorgeous mini skull bottle that the tequila is chilled and served in. You can drink it right out of the skull or pour it into a shot glass. I tried this last month and LOVED it! I’m so glad I have the beautiful bottle to always remember my trips to La Cava. Full sized, bejeweled skulls hold the Reposado, Anejo, and Extra Anejo Kah tequila. Shots of these range from $15 to $35.
If you’re looking for something truly special and unique, splurge and get yourself a shot of the new Milagro Unico Joven which is a blend of Blanco and Extra Anejo. This isn’t something that you’ll find that often so, of course, it’s going to be a little more pricey. The other new tequila, 1800 Coconut is actually an infused tequila and most definitely will be enjoyed by anyone that loves the flavor of coconut. For only $10 a shot it’s a great deal. 1800 Coconut is also found in the Infused Tequila Flight along with 4 other tequilas, Jalapeno, Hibiscus, Mango, and Chocolate for just $24.
I know there are some big spenders out there (Len, I’m looking at you) and this next option is definitely for you. A Supreme Flight with the top 5 tequilas found at La Cava del Tequila. This flight includes Casa Dragones, Reserva de la Familia, Don Julio 1942 (my favorite), Partida Elegante and Herradura Seleccion Suprema.
The bar is a great place for a snack as well as a drink. I recently tried a trio of all of their dips that can be ordered with freshly made tortilla chips. The warm Queso with jalapeno dip was outstanding! It had just the right amount of kick without being too strong. La Cava’s salsa is really something special. It’s a chipotle salsa and is a far cry from common chunky store bought salsa. It’s rich and flavorful and also packs a decent amount of heat (in my wimpy opinion) without deterring from the great taste. My mom has never been a guacamole fan. That is, until I begged her to try the guacamole at La Cava. Let’s just say that she is converted.
Don’t forget that La Cava always has $10 margarita specials every Monday! Check their Twitter account, @cavadeltequila, every Monday so you can see what the special will be. Want them to pick YOUR favorite flavor for Margarita Monday? Just drop them a line on Twitter and let them know what you want! The folks at La Cava del Tequila are all about pleasing their guests and making them feel special. During the month of May, they are featuring a Don Julio Strawberry Mint Margarita so be sure to stop in before it’s gone.
