Our expert bartenders at Signature Lounge, Residences Sky Bar, and Chictini by Pinnacle are masters at creating delicious cocktails, but there is one traditional Mexican cocktail that you should really try while you are enjoying your Puerto Vallarta vacation in the Romantic Zone that isn’t made with liquor but does come with a kick of alcohol: The Michelada.
A Michelada is made with beer as the base and can be made for all different tastes using light beer or dark beer (although dark beer is more common) and always the essential ingredients of lime juice, a little chile, and some seasoned salt. But from there, a Michelada can be custom-made depending on your request or the specialty of the house. Some bartenders add tomato juice, others use Clamato. Some will add a special touch with a splash of Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or even teriyaki sauce. A stalk of celery, cucumber, or lime wedge is a common garnish and beach bars often add a large shrimp on the side of the glass – or sometimes several shrimp on a skewer making your Michelada more like a meal than a drink.
Visit any of our three Pinnacle Resorts cocktail lounges in the Romantic Zone and ask one of our friendly bartenders to make his special version of a Michelada for you. You can even visit all three – Signature Lounge, Sky Bar and Chictini – for a Michelada tasting to find your favorite version as every bartender has his own special recipe. Micheladas are a perfectly refreshing tropical drink and with your luxury Romantic Zone vacation rental just steps away, you can feel free to try a few without worry. See you for our famous Happy Hour!
