Thirsty? Try this list of the best drinks on the Riviera Maya (Or, okay, fine, evenings… By that way.)
These are the most refreshing and light libations that are ideal for hot weather. Any cocktail can be great for unwinding at the end of a long day, but it’s only certain delicious cocktails that work ideally for hot days. Drinking Negronis and Old Fashioneds may be your favorite way to enjoy alcohol, but surely, when it’s hot outside, a Campari Sour or even a Gin Fizz might be more appropriate?
Hot and summer are often associated with “tiki cocktails” that tend to include a lot of rum or vodka and fruit flavors, and are associated primarily with the tropics. Drinks like the “Zombie,” the Pina Colada and the Mai Tai bring to mind relaxing Caribbean beachscapes and late-night walks.
Now you can check out here some of the best drinks on the riviera maya.
Margarita. Like all good things, the key to the margarita is its simplicity. The pairing of only three easily attainable ingredients to form this magical elixir leaves endless room for customization, or for no-nonsense minimalism.
Mojito. A mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, soda water, and mint. The original Cuban recipe uses spearmint or yerba buena, a mint variety very popular on the island. Its combination of sweetness, refreshing citrus, and mint flavors is intended to complement the potent kick of the rum, and has made this clear highball a popular summer drink.
Daiquiri. From frozen and fluorescent-colored, to sticky and sweet, the Daiquiri has morphed into on many forms — and not always for the better — since its introduction during the waning years of the 19th century. Is a family of cocktails whose main ingredients are rum, citrus juice (typically lime juice), and sugar or other sweetener.
Caipirinha. It’s a brazilian cocktail made with cachaça (pronounced “cah-cha-za”), lime or lemon juice, sugar and crushed ice; the caipirinha is a very simple cocktail with one main ingredient: cachaça. And it is with cachaça that the story begins. Cachaça is often confused with rum because both spirits are derived from sugar cane; nevertheless, they are surprisingly different, this is the secret of this delicious cocktail.
Piña Colada. In Spanish, Piña Colada, simply means “strained pineapple”. Even though the current recipe dates from the 1950’s, there are some allegations that the name didn’t officially materialize until almost ten years later. The “modern” Piña Colada depends on “coconut cream” as an ingredient and that doesn’t appear on the scene until 1948 when Don Ramon Lopez Irizarry, looking for an easier way to extract the cream from the pulp of the coconut, wound up creating the well known Coco Lopez product.
