Yeah, this blog does seem to be fixated on adult beverages the last few days, doesn’t it? Is that a bad thing if they’re Disney beverages?
Anyway, Mrs. All in WDW and I paid our first-ever visit to La Cava del Tequila about two months ago. When we returned to Epcot during Easter weekend, we just couldn’t resist a return engagement.
Actually, we went in search of their Camarena Reposado. We quite enjoyed it on our first try. This time, however, we caught La Cava at a relatively quiet time and landed a coveted table. What luck!
What did we order? Well, to start, there were the tequila shots. See them, off to the side? Salt, shots, lime, and sangrita?
Oh, OK. So, there were the nachos. Very good nachos. Warm. Salty. And, the accompaniments – guacamole, queso (warm white nacho cheese), and the best salsa we’ve tasted in a very long time – were outstanding!
Sold as the Trio Combo, it was a bit pricey at $16.00, but it paired really nicely with the tequila, and the …
… Jalapeño margarita. Made with El Mayor premium silver Tequila, muddled jalapeños, fresh lime juice, cucumber, and agave nectar, it is served on the rocks with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim.
To be honest, for me, it was just OK. I tasted much more cucumber than jalapeño and even wondered, for a moment, if they had mistakenly served me their Cucumber margarita by mistake. At $13.00, I’ll stick with the $9.00 shots of Camarena.
The restaurant, itself, is a bit dark and small. The tables are quite crowded together, but the atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing. Or, was it the tequila that got us relaxed?
If you’re a fan of tequila, or nacho chips for that matter, stop in and visit the “cave” of tequila. It’s a great place to temporarily duck the crowds and escape the heat!
