Looking for a drink to keep you cooled down? Consider making this sweet and spicy horchata margarita- just like you would find at Epcot’s La Cava Del Tequila menu! Topped off with cinnamon sticks to give it that extra zing, this refreshing beverage is perfect for anyone looking to relax and escape the heat.
When it comes to Disney theme parks, I’ll admit they know what they are doing when it comes to drinks. They are always filled with magic and full of inspiration!
I love exploring new places and trying different foods and drinks from all over the world, and Epcot is one of my favorite places to do just that.
La Cava Del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion is one of my go-to spots whenever I’m visiting Epcot. They have a large selection of tequila, mezcal, and amazing cocktails.
But my absolute favorite drink at La Cava Del Tequila is the horchata margarita (it’s a tie with the avocado margarita). It’s the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, and it’s so refreshing! Think horchata con tequila!
✨ What is horchata?
If you’re not familiar with horchata, it’s a traditional Spanish beverage made with vanilla rice milk, almonds, cinnamon, and sugar. It’s usually served cold and is super refreshing, especially on a hot day!
The horchata margarita at La Cava De Tequila is made with Casamigos Reposado tequila, triple sec, horchata and fresh lime juice. It’s garnished with a cinnamon sugar rim and a slice of lime.
If you’re looking for a delicious and refreshing cocktail, I recommend making horchata margaritas this summer!

Here are a few questions I get whenever I share this horchata margarita recipe. If you have any more questions, please leave them for me in the comments below or DM me on Instagram!
Is fireball whiskey gluten-free?
Yes, fireball whiskey is indeed gluten-free!
Can I use a different type of whiskey in this recipe?
If you’re not a fan of Fireball, you can definitely substitute it for another type of whiskey. Just keep in mind that the flavor will be slightly different.
Make sure to look for a gluten-free whiskey if you have that allergy.
Is tequila gluten-free?
Yes, it is! For this horchata recipe, I used blanco tequila.
It’s transparent, clear, and has a clean, crisp taste. It’s the purest form of tequila because it’s exclusively produced from 100 percent blue agave juice!
Which is the best brand of tequila blanco?
There are so many great brands of blanco tequila, but my favorite is Casamigos Blanco Tequila.
