Cocktail of the Week: Mezcalita

By Olivia Cuccaro


  • 1.5 oz Mezcal San Andres
  • 1 oz natural syrup
  • 3\4 oz watermelon liqueur
  • 1\2 oz lime juice
  • 4 cubes of fresh watermelon (and whole watermelon for serving)
  • 10 oz ice

To create our cocktail of the week, first cut into a whole watermelon. Then, blend ingredients to a frozen-drink consistency and pour into the watermelon. Garnish with fresh watermelon, umbrella and complete with a drinking straw.

You could make this cocktail to enjoy at home, but we think it’s far more fun when delivered by your own Aqua Attendant at Hilton Los Cabos. Here, the Mezcalita can only be ordered from a special waiter who will then serve it to you while you soak – no need to leave the pool. Indulge in this fruity beverage while you gaze at the Sea of Cortez from the hotel’s infinity pool, your tanning time uninterrupted by a walk to the bar.

If the combination of fresh watermelon and mezcal has you eager for some beach time, Hilton Los Cabos offers one of the destination’s only swim-friendly beaches. Set between colonial San Jose del Cabo and picturesque Cabo San Lucas at the tip of the Baja California peninsula, the resort pays homage to its Mexican heritage with bright decor and upscale onsite dining. Out of the pool, head to Azul for a tailored cocktail menu and the largest tequila collection in Los Cabos.

In February 2016, the hotel unveiled La Vista Club, a collection of 66 premium guest rooms and suites with access to an exclusive club lounge. Guests who book in this category receive a pre-arrival consultation from the hotel’s VIP Experience Concierge, personalized check-in with welcome tequila, reserved pool lounges and daybeds, garment pressing and complimentary laundry, shoe shine services and enhanced turndown service with aromatherapy menu. The 1,095 sq ft Vista Club Premier Suite offers panoramic ocean views, a private furnished balcony, separate living area, king-size bed, shower and whirlpool tub with Salvatore Ferragamo bath amenities.
