Tulum in a Glass

I’ve returned from Tulum, Mexico, with several mosquito bites and fresh juice cocktails on my mind!  We may not have fresh fruit from Mexico that grows off the Pacific coast with seemingly 100% humidity, but store- or farmer’s market-bought will work just fine.

Of course, this blend can be mixed with your choice of clear spirits, but also works as a refreshing mocktail and even helps cure hangovers.


  • 1 oz of cilantro juice
  • 2 to 3 large slices of fresh ginger root
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz of lemon juice
  • 1 oz of coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

If you don’t own a juicer or a lemon squeezer, a blender and metal tongs will work just fine. 

The tongs are a great replacement for a lemon squeezer. Simply cut your lemon in half, place on the inside of the tongs and squeeze the two prongs together.

The recipe is as simple as mixing all these ingredients together in a blender. If you decide to purchase the juice to skip the juicing part, make sure to use organic. Juice from concentrate will cause the drink to be overly sweet.

Enjoy with a blanco, vodka or rum. 2oz would be sufficient.

Make sure to enjoy with plenty of bug spray!
