One of the most classic Mexican cocktails is Paloma!
This is an easy bubbly cocktail. It combines tequila with grapefruit. This drink is perfect for happy hour drinks, or water it down and it can also be taken as a brunch drink.

The Michelada is a spicy Mexican beer cocktail. It is made with beer, tomato juice, lime juice, and hot sauce.
It is a sort of combination between a Bloody Mary and a beer margarita!
The best part is the glass rim – it is a mix of Old Bay, chili powder, and celery salt which brings a salty, savory flair.
The flavor is just right for a lot of occasions, like summer afternoon drinks or a Mexican-themed brunch.
Want a good margarita or Paloma? It’s here – A Mexican cocktail that you will love – the Cantarito!
This tasty tequila drink is similar to a Paloma, but it is made with more citrus juices such as oranges, lemons, and lime juice.
Layer it in a traditional clay cup, and the effect will be stunning. This drink is light and refreshing. It tastes even better sipped out of a cold clay rim. If you do not have one, then you can even serve it in a highball glass too.
If you crave a refreshing beer cocktail, then this will definitely be irresistible as it is easy to mix up?
Try a Chelada! The Chelada is another type of cervesa preparada. It is a beer cocktail or “prepared beer” in Spanish.
This drink features Mexican lager with lime, versus the Michelada which is like a Bloody Mary made of beer.
Top it off with a salty rim and it is perfect for any time. A laid-back brunch, cocktails on the patio, or a dinner of shrimp tacos, have it when you want it.
This is a Mexican cocktail that can be taken as an after-dinner drink.
This cocktail is popular in Spain and Latin America. But obviously even more in demand in Mexico where you will easily find it being made with Licor 43.
This drink will give you sweet vanilla, chocolate, and citrus taste from the Licor and the bitter, rich notes from the coffee. It is truly a match made in heaven!
This Mexican cocktail is bold, bubbly. It is perfect to spice up your next gathering! It is not a traditional Mexican drink, but this tequila spin on the Moscow Mule is absolutely worth trying. I must say, it might be better than the classic.
The way the bite of the tequila combines with spicy ginger – bet it, you will not stop yourself from taking another sip.
If you want to mix up your standard margarita repertoire, then try the Mexican martini!
This is an American invention. It was created in Texas and it takes the best of a classic martini and a classic margarita in the same glass!
A good margarita is seriously tangy, not too sweet, and citrusy – the same is for Martini.
Do not forget that salt rim! It is the perfect unique cocktail to impress a load of guests.
Another non-traditional Mexican cocktail – it is a spin on a classic.
The Bloody Mary is a classic vodka cocktail. But swap out the liquor for tequila and you will get Bloody Maria!
This spin is classic and absolutely worth trying because it is tangy, spicy, and perfectly seasoned.
By adding tequila, it gets a bright nuance to the drink, where vodka almost gets lost.
