Boozy ice cream at Velas Resorts
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (May 22, 2019) – In preparation for the summer sun, Mexico’s Velas Resorts have launched boozy ice cream treats in their version of a happy hour. Available at its properties in Los Cabos, Riviera Maya and Vallarta-Nayarit, offerings range from alcohol-infused popsicles and ice cream floats to frozen cocktail-inspired scoops.
From 6 – 7 pm at its oceanfront Sky Bar, Grand Velas Los Cabos now offers a menu of alcohol-included ice cream floats. In one, bourbon, sweet vermouth and a shot of espresso tops a caramel popcorn-flavored ice cream. A Mexican carajillo (Licor 43 and espresso) complements vanilla ice cream in another. Perhaps the most unique is the Ginger Reyes which combines Ancho Reyes, an authentic spicy liqueur crafted from ancho and poblano chiles in Puebla, Mexico, with Ginger Ale and passion fruit sorbet. Red wine sorbet is also offered for oenophiles.
popsicles with alcohol at Velas Resorts
On Mexico’s Caribbean Coast, Grand Velas Riviera Maya offers different types of popsicles in its three ambiences. At the Zen pool, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the Yucatan jungle, guava, horchata, and green tea are among the flavors available. No alcohol, as the area invites relaxation and well-being. The Ambassador section is geared towards families with flavors like strawberry cream, lemon and mango. In the resort’s adults-only Grand Class oceanfront infinity pool, chocolate mezcal, coconut rum, gin and tonic with cucumber, Kahlua, and margarita popsicles are all on tap. The popsicles are offered every day from 1 – 2 pm.
In the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit area, Casa Velas and Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit respectively are launching seasonal happy hour from 5 – 7 pm. Flavors like Pina Colada, Mojito, Mexican red wine, and Negroni at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit complement passion fruit with tequila and hibiscus with mezcal at Casa Velas.
