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 décor 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!
