These drinks will transport you around the globe and immerse you in the unique flavors each country has to offer. But first, let’s explore some non-alcoholic options for those who prefer to keep things light and refreshing.
Non-Alcoholic Options for All Ages
Of course, not everyone is seeking alcoholic beverages while visiting EPCOT’s World Showcase. For those who prefer non-alcoholic options or are exploring with younger guests, fear not – there are plenty of refreshing and delicious choices available.
France’s Frozen Violet Lemonade and Japan’s Ramune Soda are two popular selections that offer delightful flavors without the alcohol content.
So don’t worry – you can still drink around the world and enjoy the unique flavors each country has to offer, even if you’re not imbibing in alcoholic beverages.
France: Frozen Violet Lemonade
Sweet and tangy, the Frozen Violet Lemonade in France is a fantastic non-alcoholic option for anyone looking to cool down on a hot day. This refreshing beverage is a mix of lemonade, violet syrup, and ice, creating a delightful treat that’s perfect for all ages.
For those seeking a caffeine boost, consider trying a frozen viking coffee as an alternative.
In addition to the Frozen Violet Lemonade, the France pavilion offers other non-alcoholic options like the La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush, made with vodka, Grey Goose L’Orange Vodka, and St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur is an ideal drink for a summer evening.
It includes a mix of white and red cranberry juices which add to its flavor. No matter your preference, there’s a refreshing and delicious beverage waiting for you in France.
Japan: Ramune Soda
In the Japan pavilion, the Ramune Soda is a popular non-alcoholic choice that offers a unique and satisfying drinking experience. This carbonated soft drink from Japan comes in various flavors and features a distinct bottle shape with a glass marble stopper to keep the fizz in.

For those seeking additional non-alcoholic options in Japan, the Blackberry Sake Mist and Twinings Hot Tea are also available. Whatever your preference, the Japan pavilion has refreshing and delicious beverages to suit your taste.
There is a debate in the Disney community about where to start drinking around the world. My personal favorite is Mexico so I always start there for a margarita.
Mexico: Choza de Margarita
Many guests go inside the Mexico Pavilion to La Cava Del Tequila which has really great reviews. I didn’t love the popular margaritas inside the pavilion.
The popular La Cava Avocado is a frozen Margarita. This avacado margarita is made with fresh avocado, blanco tequila, melon liqueur, and lime juice.
I love the cart just outside the pavilion called Choza de Margarita. I haven’t had a bad margarita there so it is so hard to choose a favorite.
If you like sweet margaritas my favorite is the Black Magic Margarita. You can find the Black Magic Margarita here that was created by Neil Patrick Harris. This margarita is frozen and made with Mezcal tequila, blackberry puree, cassis liquor, lime and mint.
Another great frozen Margarita is called the Fiesta. This allows you to try all three of their popular flavors Strawberry, Lime, and Mango all together.
If you don’t like sweet Margaritas, try the Cucumber Margarita. This on the rocks margarita is the perfect refreshing light margarita to enjoy in the heat.
Norway: Frozen Viking Coffee
My second favorite drink in EPCOT is the second stop if you start in Mexico. The Frozen Viking Coffee inside the bakery Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in the Norway pavilion has Baileys Irish Cream, Kamora Coffee Liquor, Chocolate, and Coffee.
This drink is also frozen to help you cool off in the Florida heat. While you’re here for the coffee, try the school bread!
China: Canto Loopy
The China pavilion offers the unique and delicious the Canto Loopy, a refreshing cocktail made with vodka and cantaloupe, is a popular choice. This is my personal favorite in the China Pavilion.
For those seeking other drink options in the China pavilion, Tipsy Ducks in Love is another great option at the Joy of Tea. This cocktail combines bourbon, coffee, black tea, cream, and coffee chocolate sauce for a truly one-of-a-kind beverage experience.
If you’re looking for something different and indulgent, this coffee chocolate crunch inspired drink is the one for you. If you’d like a non-alcoholic option, boba tea is a delicious and fun choice.
No matter your taste, China has a drink to satisfy your desires.
Germany: Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen
For a refreshing and tangy beer option, look no further than the Germany pavilion’s Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen. This grapefruit beer offers a unique flavor that doesn’t taste like your average beer, making it a great option for those who prefer something different.
