Although the sound of it may turn your stomach, Michelada is as popular as the Mimosa at Mexican brunches.




Another one of the top ranking tequila drinks in Mexico is the Paloma.  Served on the rocks with fresh lime, this blend of grapefruit and tequila provides a refreshing cocktail that pairs perfectly with lighter meals.

Brought to Mexico during colonization times, Horchata differs between regions. From thin and watery to thick and creamy, every household has a unique way to make this classic drink. However, the general census includes a blend of almonds and rice, flavored with vanilla extract and cinnamon. The creamy mix is often spiked with dark rum but can be served as a non-alcoholic beverage as well. Click here for one of our favorite recipes.




Another favorite fruity beverage is Tepache. Also referred to as the drunken pineapple, this drink is similar to sangria. A blend of oranges, apples, and guavas is mixed with a dash of cinnamon and clove. Severed cold, the Tepache is lower in alcohol content but often increased with the addition of beer.
