La Cava del Tequila


TEQUILA! Anyone else have that song go through your head when you go to La Cava del Tequila or just me? Oh La Cava, how I love your Margaritas! If you haven't been and you love a good Margarita, make this a part of your next trip to EPCOT. It's located inside the Mexico Pavilion to the right when you enter the marketplace. 

When you first enter La Cava, it definitely has that party vibe going! It has the feel of stepping into a little hole in the wall or a Cave as the name depicts, with over 200 different brands of Tequila, let the party begin!

With it's warm d├ęcor and original artifacts celebrating the Mexican heritage, they truly make you feel right at home. It is small, with seating for up to 30.  And the way that it is situated, you don't see what is going on out in the Marketplace. It's an easy way to lose track of time, which doesn't bother me one bit! 

I usually go in with a few friends and we will grab a table and order some appetizers.  Guacamole and/or Salsa and Chips are usually what we grab. 

You can get other items such as Shrimp Cocktail (photo below), which they put their own spin on by adding a little heat.

It's a great place to sit, get out of the heat and enjoy a cocktail or 3 with your friends!

The most popular margarita by far is the Avocado Margarita.

My personal favorite is the Blood Orange Margarita! They rim it with a chile-lime powder so you get some heat. 

I also had one called the Maelstrom (photo below) which was also quite tasty! Mango puree and habanero peppers, this drink had quite a kick to it!

Having a “Tequila Ambassador” on hand to educate you on the history of tequila-making is pretty cool too!  Don't want a Margarita? How about a Tequila flight instead?!

Try your hand at making everyone's favorite Margarita!

The hours of operation at La Cava del Tequila are 11am-8pm.  If you haven't tried this little hole in the wall, put it on your list for next time.  Stop in and have a drink, you may just see me there too!  Disfrutar! Enjoy!

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house
