Because one is never enough
Here are five iconic and refreshing recipes
If you believe the content of your glass has an important effect on the direction of the party, these party drinks are just for you. We’re bringing you recipes ranging from irreverent to delicate and scandalous… We don’t expect you to put aside the classic beer or the ever-present “Margarita”, but it’s definitely an invitation to think outside of the box.
1.- Coffe o’clock, but make it tipsy: Carajillo
If you love coffee and partying, you could be looking at your new favorite drink. Much more ambitious than a conventional Friday night drink, a Carajillo strikes the perfect balance between the bitterness of coffee and the sweetness of liquor. Being considered digestive, many people reserve it for after a meal, accompanying their favorite dessert and if you’re lucky, an equally good conversation.
- 2 oz of Licor 43
- 1 hot espresso
- Serve ice up to half of the glass.
- First, add Licor 43, then the espresso.
- Mix and enjoy.

2.- Not a fan of beer? Try a cold Michelada!
The Michelada is that craving that suddenly hits you on a beach day. Its beauty begins with the frosting that some of us choose to dose carefully so that it lasts as long as the beverage inside. Preparing it is a ritual that has the power to grant you the title of the approved bartender at parties. If this happens, never forget to ask: how spicy do you want it?
- 90 ml of tomato juice
- 1 teaspoon of Maggi juice
- 1 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce
- 1 beer
- Salt and “piquín” pepper
- Frost the rim of a glass with lemon, salt and “piquín” pepper.
- Mix all the ingredients (start with the tomato juice) and add cold beer.
- Try it and add more condiments if needed.
3.Bubbles and raspberries: bring out the lemonade Mimosa!
This drink is ideal to add color to your party! Lemonade guarantees a refreshing drink and champagne invite us to celebrate with every sip. Raspberries combined with the effervescence make this drink a fun experience. If you have an outdoor event and a heart that beats for exotic flavors, you need to include the acidity of these wild berries in your mimosas.
- 4 oz champagne
- 2 oz lemonade
- 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
- Mix the lemonade and the champagne.
- Throw two or three raspberries into the glass.
- Use some of them to decorate!

5.- Tequila? ¡Por mi amante! (Tequila for my lover)
Whoever said that good things take time, surely never imagined that it could be referring to our last drink on the list. The preparation time for this delight is approximately three weeks and I bet you a bottle of tequila, that you’re going to love it. Believe me, this kind of infusion has the potential to change the way you perceive tequila forever.
If you usually avoid this Mexican distillate for its penetrating flavor, you will be happy to know that the sweetness of the strawberries will do its thing, transforming it into a softer and more aromatic beverage. Also, who doesn’t want to say that they’ve been ready to party for over half a month? That’s just art!
