Visitors to Los Cabos can treat themselves to more than incredible Mexican cuisine and cocktails but don’t worry, we have plenty of that as well. Throughout the area, locals and tourists can find a global spread representing the diverse cultural background of Los Cabos. Read on to learn more about the specialty cocktails available at some of Los Cabos’ most popular international restaurants and follow our simple steps to make one at home night:
Los Cabos San Lucas
Italian: Limoncello Martini at Salvatore´s
Located in the quiet courtyard of Siesta Suites Hotel, Salvatore G’s offers the ideal place to sit down with family and share a delicious meal and drinks. Family is at the center of this Italian restaurant, and so are the recipes that have been passed down for generations – including the sip, refreshing Limoncello that’s the perfect way to end a day spent at the beach.
Limoncello Martini: Vodka, Limoncello, and freshly squeezed lemon juice served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass
Steakhouse: Chili Margarita at Outpost
Outpost immerses diners in a unique food experience surrounded by organic gardens and live music. Guests can choose to dine on the Chandelier Patio, Rooftop Terrace, or in the main dining room. With a menu encompassing everything from vegetarian curries to carbonara pasta to pork chops, we recommend the restaurant’s fiery cocktail that pairs perfectly with the meal.
Chili Margarita: Tequila, Cointreau, homemade syrup
Mexican: Oaxacalifornia Negroni at Jazamango
Renowned Mexican chef Javier Plascencia is behind the farm-to-table Jazamango in Todos Santos. Reimagining Baja cuisine, the restaurant serves delicious dishes with main ingredients grown on-site that can be enjoyed on their covered patio or sitting at the bar. The expansive property is worth exploring, and we recommend ordering an Oaxacalifornia Negroni to keep you cool as you look around.
Oaxacalifornia Negroni: Agave Gin, Campari, Blend de Vermouths, Bitters de Angostura y Naranja
Seafood: The Green Room at The Green Room
There is no better way to enjoy a freshly-caught seafood feast than with your toes buried in the sand. That is the experience at The Green Room where ultra-delicious cuisine doesn’t come with a hefty price tag – or a formal dress code. Show up in shorts or a bikini and dig into your meal as pelicans soar overhead and whales migrate along the shoreline. Toast the magical Baja evening with the restaurant’s signature cocktail for an invigorating mix of cucumber, grapefruit and smoky Mezcal.
The Green Room: Green Room Mezcal, fresh grapefruit juice, lemon, basil, green grape, cucumber
San Jose del Cabo
Argentinian: Mezcalita at Chamuyo
Chamuyo’s traditional “Asado Argentino '' embraces the warm and inclusive porteño culture by offering communal seating and family-style dining. From empanadas and chorizo to the alfajores and dulce de leche ice cream and all the steak cuts in between, Chamuyo would fit in perfectly along the banks of the Rio de la Plata. Pair your steak with Malbec but start the evening with a Mezcalita – the cocktail menu has three versions from which to choose.
Mezcalita: Fresh basil, fresh cucumber, fresh lemon juice, Licor de Chile Poblano, Mezcal, Jarabe de Agave, Sal de Gusano
The Tourist Corridor
Mediterranean: White Basil Sangria at Nao
The whitewashed decor, reminiscent of the Greek Isles, takes a backseat to the stunning scenery spilling in with the sunlight at this chic Mediterranean restaurant. Reimagined traditional dishes are artfully prepared with locally-sourced ingredients and are *almost* too pretty to eat. For a stiff but refreshing cocktail, we recommend reaching for the Sea Seltzer, while those in the mood for a nonalcoholic drink can enjoy a Lavender Lemonade.
Sea Seltzer: Vodka, Sambuca, Hard Seltzer
