Best Types of Mexican Alcohol

It is the namesake of Tequila, Jalisco in Mexico. This drink was created in the 16th century and is the most popular of agave spirits. It’s manufactured by distilling the sugars found in the blue agave plant. Tequila is a very smooth drink with very little alcohol taste. It works great served with a bit of salt and lime juice or mixed in a cocktail.

At Costa Pacifica, we serve a wide variety of tequilas as individual spirits or as an ingredient in our margaritas, martinis, and cocktails. Tequila is truly the liquor of choice in Mexico.


The differences between mezcal and tequila can be confusing. Tequila itself is a mezcal, but mezcals are not necessarily tequila. Mezcal is made of different types of agave and produced in different regions such as Oaxaca. It uses a different distillation process that leaves the drink with a distinguished smoky flavor. Mezcal works great as a standalone drink and is reminiscent of scotch but can also be used in cocktails.

Mexico Produces Great Beer

Beer, or cerveza, is a common drink almost everywhere in the world, including Mexico. Many Mexican brands are popular in the United States including Dos Equis, Pacifico, Tecate, and Corona. In fact, an ice-cold Corona on the beach is essential to experiencing an authentic seaside experience!


Baja California is the most notable wine-producing region in Mexico. It doesn’t necessarily have the word-of-mouth reputation of France or Italy, but fantastic wine comes from this area as well. Costa Pacifica currently pours Concha Y Toro, Mirrasour, and other fine wines from South America and California. Wine is a classy drink no matter where you go and goes with almost any type of dish!


Though the number of cocktails that exist is endless, none is likely more famous than the margarita. An ordinary margarita features a combination of tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and lots of salt adorning the glass. Nowadays, you can get margaritas in a variety of delicious, fruity flavors.
