To the cave! Cava is the Spanish word for cave after all and also a cellar. But, the cave sounds better to us. Why are we heading to the cave? We’re digging up our next installment of our Disney at home recipes. This time around we’re heading back to Epcot to share our La Cava Blood Orange Margarita recipe. You know how we like our margaritas after all. Without any further ado let’s get to shaking up our La Cava Blood Orange Margarita Recipe!
Ok, a little more ado. What can we say, we like to give a little insight into where our recipes come from. As we shared in our La Cava Cucumber Margarita recipe, this is a hole in the wall tequila bar located inside the Mayan temple within Epcot’s Mexico pavilion. Known for offering a wide variety of tequilas. La Cava del Tequila also has a small seating area where you can find delicious apps, like queso. Did someone say queso, yes, yes we did! What’s not to like about melted cheese? Beyond the queso, you’ll find other apps like guacamole, chips and salsa, and of course tacos. Alright, that completes our ado, let’s make this margarita!
