Refresh your mind, your body and, of course, pamper your taste buds with the delicious tropical flavors of these drinks that will refresh your trip to Tulum.
Alcoholic drinks are great for adding a fun touch to your vacation in Tulum. Take advantage of the fact that you are resting on the beach and let yourself be carried away by the tropical vibes of Tulum, giving a radical turn to the traditional St. Patrick’s Day parties. Lie for a while under the shade of a palm tree and enjoy the tingling that a few drops of alcohol in your drink cause while listening to the sound of the waves in the background.
1. Bay Breeze
For vodka lovers, this alcoholic drink comes with a base made of pineapple and cranberry juice that gives it its unique reddish tone. Decorate your Bay Breeze glass with a slice of lemon or a piece of pineapple, serve it with lots of ice cubes and, shake it good!
This popular Cuban drink has been adopted by the Tulum’s local people. The Mojito is prepared with white rum, sugar, lemon juice, mint and mineral water. Add a few cubes of ice and let its freshness make you forget the warmth of the Caribbean.
While visiting Mexico, it would be unforgivable not to taste the delicious tequila that characterizes the country. To match the experience to the beaches of Tulum, an excellent drink that will refresh you is the Margarita. Its traditional recipe includes only lemon juice, but in modern times it has become customary to make other flavors such as strawberry or mango. The only thing that cannot be missed is, of course, tequila! Mix the juice with a lot of ice in the blender until you obtain a frozen texture. Decorate your glass with slices of citrus fruits and enjoy!

These drinks are equally delicious because they contain fresh ingredients rich in flavor so you can truly feel the tropical accents that you can find in the general cuisine of the area.

8. “Aguas Frescas”
These non-alcoholic drinks are typical not only in the region but throughout Mexico. They are usually consumed during lunch hour and to accompany the meal, but if served with a lot of ice, they work perfectly to refresh you during a day at the beach.
