Grand Velas Riviera Maya Pool

The luxury, all-inclusive Grand Velas Riviera Maya is introducing a new cocktail menu inspired by local Mayan Astrology. Debuting at the resort’s Sky Bar and Chaka restaurant this spring, the menu will feature thirteen cocktails based on traits of Mayan astrological signs.

If you can’t travel to Playa del Carmen just yet, try making a cocktail at home! The resort’s bar manager Cecilia Sierra shares the below recipe for one of the cocktails, Coz.

Mayan Astrology Sign: Falcon (February 7 – March 6)
Sign Characteristics: Falcons possess great judgment and are incredibly faithful and solution-oriented. In the Coz cocktail, triple sec and sharp citrus flavors represent a falcon watching from above, attentive and swift.
