Whereas Matt can always go for Chinese (or, in general, Asian) food, that’s how I am with Mexican. So when Matt suggested swinging by Jardin de Fiestas to revisit the Taco al Pastor, I happily obliged.

2015 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Menu Prices Jardin de Fiestas

During our first trip to the festival together, we often order just one of the items to share since there is so much eating we like to accomplish for the blog. However, once those items have been consumed, we revisit old favorites, even if they’re not necessarily the best the festival has to offer. This was one of those occasions we each ordered our own Taco al Pastor, which features a Corn Tortilla filled with Achiote-marinated Pork garnished with Grilled Diced Pineapple, Onions, Cilantro, and Salsa Verde.

La Cava del Tequila & Trying Some New Items

One of the things about having family and friends in town is that they want to visit all the fun, popular spots. One of those places is La Cava del Tequila in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion. Matt and I were there just a few short weeks ago, but in those few short weeks, I spotted something I didn’t see on our last visit: the Ambhar Tamarindo Margarita.

This Summer Special Margarita features Premium Tequila Ambhar Blanco, Tamarind Pulp, Orange Liquor, and Agave Nectar. It is served frozen with a Tajin Chili Powder Rim. I was definitely sold.

It was refreshing on such a hot summer day, and had a nice fruity, sweet and sour balance. Definitely one I’d look into ordering again, especially to-go.

Matt ordered a draft Tecate and was sold on adding a floater of Combier Orange Liquor for an additional $3. I don’t think he was too impressed by it, struggling to taste any sort of citrus, but I took a sip and felt like it was there. I think he may have just been being cautious because the first drink they brought him was a Cucumber Margarita.

Cucumber and Avocado Margaritas at La Cava del Tequila

It’s been a while since either Matt or I stopped into La Cava del Tequila, so we decided it was time for us to swing by and partake in one of their delicious margaritas. The bar was relatively empty, and the “to-go” line had nobody in it, so we were able to quickly receive our cocktails. Since we ordered at the bar, they were served in plastic cups so we could walk around with them.

Matt was considering the Jalapeno Margarita, which I ordered several years ago. Instead, he surprised me and ordered the Cucumber Margarita, consisting of tequila, orange liqueur, caramelized pineapple juice, muddled fresh basil, agave nectar, muddled cucumber, and served on the rocks with a Tajin chili powder rim. I was expecting him to opt for a more “classic” flavor since he’s picky about cukes, but this turned out to be just the right cooling beverage for the midday sun.

It looks like this is an Eating WDW first – a Snacks from Mexico! I know I’ve bought snacks there before, but I haven’t reviewed anything here. If you look around a bit in the pavilion and get past all of the Kahlua-flavored items, there are some interesting items to be enjoyed! Matt and I spotted this package of Obleas: Wafers with Goat’s Milk Candy. Goat’s milk!? We had to try it!

La Cava del Tequila’s Horchata Margarita

It’s been a little while since I’ve stopped in to La Cava del Tequila tucked into the Mexico pavilion. Upon seeing the Horchata Margarita spotted by a friend of Drinking Disney, I knew it was definitely time for another visit to the popular watering hole.

The Horchata Margarita is made with Exotico 100% agave premium silver Tequila, horchata liquor, agave nectar, agua de horchata and Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey served with a cinnamon and sugar rim. Mexican horachata is a beverage traditionally made with rice. The margarita is then topped with a healthy dose of cinnamon.
