    In the World Showcase in Epcot, you have to buy and drink an adult beverage in every country as you walk around the showcase. Now in reading some of the posts on here, there are some that would say you have to drink a beer in every country. But in some countries, there are other options with wine and liquor. My friend explained it as the signature drink or drink made in each country. You can't drink a bud light at each country.

    There is not an official list that I know of so I guess that leaves it up to the individual as to what the signature drink and/or preference would be in each country. The key is to finish the drink from each country.

    Mexico = Margarita
    Japan = Sake
    Germany = dark beer
    France = Wine

    Hope this helps.

    yes it does!!!
    Thank you!


    What about Italy, Morocco, china, canada, USA!,and Norway?

    A little off topic, but which pavillion serves the Grand Marnier slush?

    I'm in Lori's camp, I'm not sure I'd make it half way especially if it was hot out. I love German wine, glass two in the heat, it usually right back to water.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,

    Tony,

    I would probably need some help matching up drinks for the other countries, as I haven't been on property in four years, but each country does serve a native beer. If nothing else, I will compile a list when I am at WDW in a few weeks.

    Italy = Chianti
    Morocco = They have a specialty drink, but I am drawing a blank on it
    China = ??
    USA = Bud
    Canada = Molson's
    Norway = ??

    Anybidy else have suggestions?

    France.

    Some of our favorites from memory:

    Canada: Icewine
    UK: Cider and DH likes some Ale there
    France: Beaujolais Nouveau (Seasonal), Grand Marnier Slushie, pretty much any wine
    Morocco: Sultan's Colada
    Japan: Sake, Plum Wine, Cherry Blossom Martini
    USA: totally skip over this pavilion
    Italy: Rosa Regale, Limoncello, Chianti, really any wine
    Germany: Glühwein (Seasonal), DH says the beer that starts with an S, pretty much any beer
    China: Tsingtao Beer
    Normay: don't remember
    Mexico: don't remember, but I know people like to start here with a Fiesta Margarita

    P.S. The only "rule" you need to follow is to be smart and know your limits. Don't be "that person."

    Thanks, MandaBella


    Looks like nearly all of the signature drinks in Norway besides the wines freature "Aquavit", a favorite Norwegian vodka.

    I tried this once. I am not sure I could do it again though! I found that if you just stick to beer...
    The day I tried this was 90 some degrees and I had a sunburn. The cold beer did the trick. My advice is to just be careful and pace yourself. Take the whole day and forget the rides. It was a blast.

    Proud to say that I have done this! We started with Margaritas in Mexico and finished with Moosehead in Canada. We aren't big beer drinkers and were pleasantly surprised with the German wines. Most countries we had our own drinks, but we shared a beer in Norway and America.
    Our favorites are:
    Sake in Japan
    Gran Marnier Slushies in France (Kir Royale is good too!)
    Strongbow Cider in UK

    Just remembered... for any non-drinkers, there is also chocolate around the world. I haven't tried this yet, but I think it might be more challenging to eat that much chocolate in one day than the drinking!

    I like the idea of drinking around the world but with their steep drink prices it's probably comparable with airfare around the world.

    i worked in the german pavillion the past year (i was on the cultural representative program) and trust me - there are GOOD german wines!!

    if you like the sweet ones, go with the "Diva auslese" (for divas among you guys ;o) ) - if you like it dry it would recommend the Estate Dry (!) Riesling

    I'm not sure if there is a beer that starts with a S...but then again i worked in the merchandise section (which includes the wine shop), not food and beverage (which is were the beer-kiosk belongs to)

    unfortunately i was 20 at the time and didn't want to risk being fired and sent back home to Germany - so i couldn't participate in the drinking myself.

    But I'm planning to go with my girlfriend next year (we met there and she too was underage) and then we're definately going to drink our way around! woohooo!

    You are correct about there being good German wines, but I never tried any at the German Pavilion other than the one I mentioned.

    Germany definitely produces the best Rieslings IMHO. I'll have to look at for that dry one you mentioned. I enjoy pretty much all types of wine, but my DH isn't a fan of sweet ones tending to prefer the dry ones.

    If you like it dry dry then you could also try the "Selbach Oster Spätlese" - yes it a spätlese and yes it still is very dry. spätlese's don't necessarily have to be always dry.

    the Estate dry riesling is - as i said - also dry but it still has a refreshing and somehow fruity taste to it (fruity and sweet are not the same thing!)

    I hope you'll think of me next time you are there
