Learn to Make a Riviera Maya

Did you know that at Now Resorts & Spas we have a drink named after the area which our resorts, Now Jade Riviera Cancun & Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, call home? It’s called the Riviera Maya.

In this post, we’re going to teach you how to make this yummy cocktail so you can enjoy it even when you’re not visiting us!

Riviera Maya Recipe

1oz Melon Liqueur
4oz Orange Juice
1 ½ oz rum
1 oz strawberry nectar/juice

Mix together the rum and strawberry nectar in a separate glass/jug.  Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour the melon liqueur over the ice cubes.  Once the melon liqueur has reached the bottom of the glass, gently pour in the orange juice so that it stays on top of the melon liqueur. Once this has settled on top, carefully pour in the strawberry/rum mix so that this floats on top.  Garnish with a slice of orange!
