Instructions for how to make this easy Tokyo Sunset cocktail recipe from Epcot’s Japan pavilion:
Epcot has so many great food and drink offerings. Many of the countries have unique items which can make it hard to decide what to get – that’s why some of us end up “drinking around the world!” But when I’m with my friend Kristin and we’re passing by Japan, I have a feeling we’re stopping for a Tokyo Sunset, as that is one of her favorite drinks.
This is what I like to call a “cruise drink,” because it’s got lots of fruit juices and is nice and sweet. These can go down really easily! They are a perfect option for anyone who doesn’t like drinks that taste super alcoholic or who like fruity cocktails. Plus, they look beautiful… there’s a reason why they call it the Tokyo Sunset!
As we’re approaching the summer it’s the perfect time to enjoy one of these drinks, and even if you won’t be at Disney you can easily make this Tokyo Sunset cocktail recipe at home. Some Disney recipes can be overly complicated but this one is simple. We made it for our Epcot in your Backyard party we had and it was a big hit. Be careful though, because it has three types of alcohol or liqueurs in it. So even if it tastes like fruit juice don’t let it sneak up on you!
It’s basically as simple as shaking together all the ingredients and then serving over ice. The only thing you have to be careful of is to add the drizzle of grenadine last if you want that sunset effect. The drink separates really well so if you’re like me and don’t have the most steady hand it should still turn out okay. In fact I made these in small drink pouches for our backyard party and drove them in a cooler bag to a friend’s house and they still came out looking pretty good. And if you happen to just mix it in, no matter. It’s still going to taste great!
And whether you want to enjoy this one in the evening and make it a true “Tokyo Sunset” or you’re drinking it in the morning (I won’t tell anyone – hey, it’s juice, right?) it’s the perfect spring or summer drink.

Sounds (and looks) yummy!
It looks delicious! Just wishin’ I could be back at Epcot. Patiently counting down the days until our October visit and Ratatouille opening. -Andrea

Wow, this is so fruity and fun! I can’t wait to try it!
It’s perfect – I went home this weekend and my dad made them for us!
Ooh yum! This sounds like a perfect summer beach drink. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a cocktail in Japan. When my family drinks around the world, we almost always head straight to the back of the pavilion to hit of the sake counter. Hana Fuga is my favorite, but next time, I’ll have to branch out to try one of these.
Yes, I love the sake counter! It actually was closed the last time we were there though which was a bummer. But they had a sake cocktail at the Flower and Garden booth!
