The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The Agave Experience At La Cava Del Tequila

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Teetotalers need not apply, because today we’re going to talk about The Agave Experience in La Cava del Tequila! Just in case, let’s kick it back to basics first. La Cava del Tequila is the tequila and margarita bar that’s inside the pyramid in the Mexico pavilion. It’s on your right when you first enter. La Cava is run by an outside company, not Disney. Unlike the quick service stands outside, they offer tequila shots in addition to specialty margaritas. The space is tiny, so if you want to...

Can You Get Electro-LIT With The Runner’s Margarita? (No.)

The Runner’s Margarita has been a long time coming. I’ve been pondering it awhile, but it was only last weekend that I finally sprang for the full bottle of tequila I required for my experiment. A classic margarita, made from scratch, is very simple. You only really NEED three ingredients: tequila, lime juice, and an orange liqueur like triple sec or Grand Marnier. I make a pretty decent margarita and paloma if I do say so myself. Of course the problem with margaritas is that they contain alcohol(!), which is dehydrating, not to mention a bit sugary depending on...

We’re all coping as best we can. And one way I’ve been coping with missing Disney is with alcohol. Wait wait wait – not like that! Rather, I’ve been following along with...

A Tale of Two Tequila Shots

Please join me once again in welcoming the amazing, death-defying Elizabeth as my special guest! JENN: So, tequila. Walt Disney World. Walt Disney World. Tequila. I think the connection is obvious. ELIZABETH: And the first time you chickened out! JENN: This is true. Let the record show that Elizabeth is twice the man I am. ELIZABETH: It was a good place to have a first tequila shot, though. JENN: And it was in La Cava del Tequila in Mexico, of course. So that was your first one? ELIZABETH: Yep! I’d had margaritas, but nothing with straight tequila. JENN:  I...
