Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With These 6 Margaritas in Disney World
Today is the fifth of May, which makes it Cinco de Mayo!
The drink most closely associated with the holiday is the margarita, typically made with tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. We decided to try a bunch of margaritas all over Disney World in honor of Cinco de Mayo, so find out which ones to try right here!
La Cava Avocado — La Cava del Tequila
Let’s start with La Cava Avocado, made with tromba blanco tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, and lime juice for $17. It’s served frozen with a hibiscus salt rim. You can find this margarita at La Cava del Tequila, located inside the Mexico Pavilion.
This is a fan-favorite margarita for many people and super delicious. It has a light slushy consistency and the avocado makes it nice and creamy. In the Florida heat, it’s extra refreshing too, but if you don’t like avocado — steer clear.
Fiesta — Choza de Margarita
Next, we’re staying in EPCOT’s Mexico Pavilion to visit Choza de Margarita, where we ordered the Fiesta, a combination of strawberry, classic lime, and mango loco for $13.25.
This is another slushy-based margarita, although it’s less creamy than the La Cava Avocado, with a traditional slushy consistency. It’s pretty strong, but still tasty and flavorful.
Again, on a hot Florida day, it was a refreshing choice.
Marvelous Watermelon Margarita — BoardWalk Joe’s
It’s time to stop by Disney’s BoardWalk for the Marvelous Watermelon Margarita, made with Patron Silver Tequila, watermelon, lime juice, and sweet-and-sour for $15.50.
If you’re a watermelon fan, this is definitely worth a try! The sugar around the rim gives it a different vibe than a traditional margarita, and it was refreshing and tart.
Dawa Bar — African Margarita
Now we’re visiting Dawa Bar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to give the African Margarita a try. This drink is made with Corazon Blanco Tequila, KWV Van der Hum Tangerine Liqueur, sweet-and-sour, and Iime juice for $14.50.
This margarita plays on a classic margarita and was absolutely delicious! The tangerine was just barely recognizable but it added an extra element to compliment the lime. This is definitely a go-to margarita now.
Springtime Margarita Flight — Geyser Point
Next, we have four different margaritas to try at Geyser Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. From left to right, the flavors are Key Lime, Elderflower, Lavender, and Grapefruit, and the flight costs $22.
The Key Lime Margarita was very sweet and a little tart, with a teensy bit of strawberry flavor. It gave dessert drink vibes, and the tequila hid well behind the sweetness.
The Lavender Margarita had a strong lavender flavor and smell, and it was slightly sweet — less so than the Key Lime drink, but. still sweeter than a classic margarita.
The Elderflower Margarita was also fragrant and sweet, and actually a little more potent than the Lavender drink. This one was nice and light, which was appreciated.
The Grapefruit Margarita featured a sugar rim but ironically was the least sweet out of all four drinks. It was also tart, but the flavor was harder to find than the floral drinks. We enjoyed it!
Overall, we thought that these were really fun drinks and fit the spring theming well but make sure you like sweeter drinks!
Frozen Margarita with Dole Whip Lime — Barefoot Pool Bar
And finally, let’s visit Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Barefoot Pool Bar, where you can get the Frozen Margarita with Dole Whip Lime, which is Dole Whip Lime blended with Corazon Blanco Tequila and chili-lime seasoning for $16.
If you’re craving Dole Whip, and a drink by the pool, this a must-try! The lime was ever so slightly tart and the chili lime seasoning around the rim paired really well. It was cool and refreshing and even when it melted down a little bit, it was still perfect.
