Tafer Signature Cocktails

Tafer cocktails

Garza Blanca

Ingredients: Mezcal, soursop puree, serrano chili pepper, lime juice, & simple syrup.  

This drink was given the name Garza Blanca because its color, flavor, and characteristics represent our brand. The cocktail has an attractive white color representative of Garza Blanca. Mezcal is one of the most emblematic drinks of Mexico and serrano chili peppers add a touch of spice contrasted nicely with the sweetness of the soursop for an interesting flavor combination.  

Blanca Blue 

    Ingredients: White tequila, blackberries, basil, cranberry juice, Cassis liquor, lime juice, & simple syrup. 

    This cocktail was created especially for Blanca Blue, our Mexican cuisine restaurant, and pairs perfectly with flank steak. 

    Bocados Martini   

      Ingredients: Vodka, chambord liqueur, blackberries, raspberries, cranberry juice, & pineapple juice.  

        Created especially for our signature Bocados STK restaurant, this martini is fresh, fruity, and elegant. 

      Little Shaman  

        Ingredients: Mezcal, mint, basil, peppermint, saint leaf, coriander, cinzano rosso, lime juice, syrup, & sparkling water.  

        This concoction is as refreshing as a mojito, but with a Mexican twist. Ever since pre-Hispanic times, “Shamans” have had a firm root in indigenous culture. They are the ¨medicine men¨ with ancient knowledge of herbal medicine who are believed to be able to cure all ailments, whether physical, spiritual, or emotional, through natural means and prayer.  


          Ingredients: White tequila, ginger syrup, peppermint, cucumber, & lime juice. 

          Created for our paradisiacal and hot climates using ingredients that when mixed create an explosion of freshness and flavor that will refresh you while in our pool areas and restaurants, and goes with any type of food. 

          Top Cocktails 


          Classic Margarita 

            Ingredients: White tequila, triple sec, lime juice, & salt. 

            What vacation in Mexico would be complete without a margarita?  It is the perfect combination of sour, bitter, sweet, and salty. The history of this classic cocktail is not entirely clear, as more than one person has claimed to have invented the margarita, but the thing that is clear is that it is a delicious and refreshing drink. 


              Ingredients: White tequila, grapefruit soda, lime juice, & salt. 

              The Paloma is a Mexican favorite similar to the classic margarita except that instead of triple sec, we use grapefruit soda making it a refreshing tequila cocktail. 

              Frozen Margarita 

                Ingredients: White tequila, triple sec, lime juice, & salt. 

                Another popular variation of the classic margarita, is the frozen margarita served as tropical-inspired frozen mixed drink, almost like a tequila-infused ice slush served with salt on the rim of the glass. Again, there are several claims as to its origins, but one such claim is that frozen margaritas were invented by bartender Albert Hernandez in La Jolla when he stopped using crushed ice and combined the ingredients in a blender. Whether that is true or not, you should still have one on your next vacation.  

                 Mango Tango 

                  Ingredients: White rum, mango & strawberry puree. 

                  This cocktail very popular in Cancun. It´s a mix of two different frozen drinks, mango and strawberry, in a colorful presentation; perfect for hot days.  

                  Cielo Rojo (Red Sky 

                     Ingredients: Lager beer, clamato juice, lime juice, mix of sauces, tajin & pepper. 

                    The Red Sky is a popular alcoholic drink in Mexico similar to a Bloody Mary, except that it is mixed with beer rather than vodka. It is the ideal drink for hot days and a goes great with seafood dishes such as ceviche.
