If there is something Los Cabos knows how to do right is a cocktail. In fact, most would agree - there is a special cocktail for every occasion!

With an uprising of Cabo's gastronomy culture, mixology could not stay far behind. In recent years the magicians behind the drinks have put themselves into the spotlight, creating the most special cocktails on a world-class level while honoring the traditional Mexican essence through their creations.

Finding a beer and tequila shots is easy, but discovering a cool place where you can experience some unique combinations, flavors, and presentation is a completely different experience. Here are our favorite places to have a drink to remember at a place you will not forget.

If you are a mezcal lover, you will find every single cocktail on the menu at Comal Restaurant a delight for your senses. One however stands out from the rest - Humo De Comal. Prepared with one of the best mezcals of the region, purple chicha, and citruses served in a smoky glass, this fruity drink is more than just a pretty cocktail with a view.

The Latin-infused restaurant is at Chileno Bay Resort, and asides from traditional food with a twist they provide one of the most privileged ocean and sunset views in the city, right on Chileno Bay beach. Another favorite drink here is the Chilenito, prepared with mezcal, pineapple, ginger, Aztec Ruda Bitter, and a spicy touch of Poblano pepper liquor.

Hibiscus arrived in the country during the colonial conquest, and ever since it has become one of the key ingredients in Mexican gastronomy. The red flower juice has a bittersweet taste and a delicate touch of freshness that has made its way into a traditional cocktail prepared with vodka and lemon juice. The cocktail is quite popular around the region, but without a doubt Casa Natalia prepares one of the best. Here you will find “Mi Cocina" where they serve Mexican and European cuisine. Everything here is made with local and organic ingredients including their delicious cocktail menu – available only after lunch. The whole concept is very colorful and filled with traditional Mexican details; the open-air terrace of the restaurant is quite lovely, and they serve delicious seafood and an oyster bar to pair with your drinks.

In Mexico we have a traditional drink called Paloma (Pigeon) which simply combines tequila and grapefruit soda, but the Crazy Cazuela is taking this drink to a whole new level. Served in a rustic clay cazuela, the drink mixes fresh citrus juice from organic oranges and grapefruits, some slices of the same fruits, tequila, fresh lemon juice and some Fresca (Mexican grapefruit soda) and salt. The drink is like sipping summer in a glass, so refreshing and smooth!

While the drink is typically from Jalisco, the bartender at The Crazy Lobster Bar and Grill has served the cocktail some marvelous justice. You can also find some delicious margaritas that pair astonishingly well with their seafood dishes or the catch of the day. Also, their prices are very reasonable.

Avocados are considered the eatable green gold, so when we first heard its name on a drink we knew we had to try it. The ingredients are not unusual, but one would not think combined in a martini glass could taste so good. Gin, avocado, milk, lemon tea, and angostura bitters create a special drink with sweet and strong notes. The mastermind behind this, and every other cocktail on the menu, is renowned mixologist, Osvaldo Vázquez, who has designed cocktails for some of the most important restaurants in Cabo such as Resort at Pedregal and Chileno Bay, and The Cape Thompson Hotel. Every creation is meant to reflect and highlight the local goodness from Mexican soil.

You can find it at Revolución, an innovative Mexican restaurant located on a historic building in the heart of downtown San José del Cabo. If you are in the mood for something different, try the Barón Mariachi or the Perro Callejero.

Mojitos are that tropical and fresh drink you’ve got to have on every beach vacation, but the cocktails at Metate are beyond a classical creation since everything on their menu has a distinctive twist. The bar here is called La Chingada, which is a popular Mexican way of referring to hell, but their food and drinks are made in heaven—and so is the decoration and ambiance of the place!

The guava mojito keeps the traditional white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint, but adds the sweetness and surprising freshness from the guava–which is not only a very tropical fruit, but it is quite common in Mexican gastronomy. The pink drink is the perfect companion for some traditional antojitos and gourmet street food at Metate.

The glass bar and rooftop terrace set at the Cape is the ideal setting to go out for some drinks and enjoy the gorgeous panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and El Arco for the rest of the evening. Here you will not only find some of the most delicious gourmet experiences but some of the most famous cocktails in town. Created to impress, every creation behind mixologist, Osvaldo Vazquez, is a little work of art. Filled with the colors and flavors of the Latin spirit, cocktails here combine fruits, local liquors, and unique spices to create some extraordinary drinks.

In particular, the Guayacura cocktail is everything Instagram is searching for. With a hypnotizing pink color from the Pitahaya juice, the drink combines Damiana-infused mezcal, fresh lemon juice, ginger beer, and some chilhuacle oil drops–which is native dried chili pepper. It is somewhat between spicy, powerful, and sweet that you just got to try for yourself to describe.
