Disney confirmed today that the long-delayed Choza de Margarita counter service location will be opening soon. Originally slated to open in early 2017, Disney officially said that “walls would be coming down shortly”. Located outside of the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot, this walk-up window will feature “authentic Mexican beverages and street fare”.
The beverage menu will feature three kinds of hand-crafted margaritas, frozen margaritas, and Mexican beer. In addition to the 9 alcoholic beverage options, there will be a non-alcoholic fruit punch made with orange, pineapple, and grapefruit juices and grenadine.
The street fare options will include Tacos al Pastor with grilled pork on fresh homemade corn tortillas with green tomatillo sauce, onion, pineapple and cilantro; Empanadas de Barbacoa with beef, topped with chipotle sauce, Mexican cream, and queso fresco; and fresh guacamole with mango chutney, pumpkin and pomegranate seeds, served with fried flour chicharrones and salsa Valentina, an authentic Mexican hot sauce.
The hand-crafted, on-the-rocks varieties include Acan Grapefruit (Casa Noble Blanco Tequila, grapefruit liqueur, elderflower cordial, lemon juice, cardamom bitters and ginger beer), Lime Cucumber (Avión Blanco Tequila, fresh cucumber, orange liqueur, lime juice and agave nectar), and Guava Pink Peppercorn (Zignum Mexcal Reposado, guava nectar, grapefruit liqueur, lime juice, Peychaud’s Bitters and pink peppercorns).
On a hot Florida day, take your pick from one of the three frozen margaritas: Lime (tequila blanco, lime sweet & sour, orange liquor and agave nectar), Wild Strawberry (tequila blanco, strawberry and prickly pear puree, violet flower liquor and lime juice), or Passion Mango (tequila blanco, orange liqueur, wild passion fruit and mango puree).
No official opening date was given, but the location should open before the holiday season begins at the parks.
