made with house-made Agua Fresca (fresh fruit water), with champagne and topped with Cointreau.
CAFE DE OLLA AGUARDIENTE
Traditional Mexican coffee prepared in a clay pot, which imparts a subtle but perceptible flavor, infused with Canela Mexicana (Mexican cinnamon stick) and topped off with a splash of brandy
Pineapple skins, fermented for 5 days with cloves, cardamon and cinnamon.
Traditionally served as a "sidecar" to a shot of good Tequila (both are meant to be sipped)- available: "red" (fresh squeezed orange & tomato juices) or "green" (fresh-squeezed lime, pineapple and cucumber juices).

DID YOU KNOW THAT MARGARITAS ARE NOT THE MOST POPULAR DRINK IN MEXICO?!
other tequila-based drinks:
(This IS the most popular drink in Mexico) with fresh grapefruit juice and tequila, a splash of soda, agave and a Mexican lime wedge. We recommend Tequila Reposado or Blanco.
A SHOT & SANGRITA
In Mexico, Sangrita (not to be confused with Sangria) is a customary partner to a shot of straight Tequila Blanco; a non-alcoholic accompaniment that highlights tequila's crisp acidity and cleanses the palate between each peppery sip. Sangrita translates as “little blood” because of its bright red color. Made with Seville orange, lime and pomegranate juices and a hint of ancho chile, it's garnished with a couple of jalapeño slices
A SHOT & VERDITA
A riff on the "Shot & Sangrita", the bright, refreshing accompaniment is made with pineapple juice, cilantro and mint pressed to release their oils, and jalapeño.
Mexican riff on the Bloody Mary, same kick, but made with tequila. A brunch favorite.
Plain (with mint), blueberry or cranberry. Light rum, muddled mint, simple syrup and a splash of sparkling water.
