Mocktails Accommodate Love Appetites of All Ages at
Mexico's Velas Resorts For Valentine's Day and Beyond
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (January 28, 2016) -Mexico's "Beyond All-Inclusive, Beyond All-Compare" Velas Resorts serve up some love this Valentine's Day with new alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails for all to enjoy this winter season. Couples cuddling up in the newly renovated Koi Bar at AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit enjoy a fruity and creamy treat with the St. Valentine martini, while lovers enjoying romance elsewhere at the resort can enjoy a fresh and sweet Strawberry & Mint martini or specialty Cranberry Champagne. At sister property Velas Vallarta, the Amor Loco cocktail combines Licor 43, Naranja, Orange Juice, mineral water and Cassis while a nonalcoholic version is served for kids. Red Cloud and Apple Martinis are served at the adults-only Casa Velas, and the Xtabentun Mayan Cocktail at Grand Velas Riviera Maya. Stemming from a Mayan legend, it is said that when you drink a cup of Xtabentum, the dizzy drunkenness that follows is the effect of the love and charm that women have on men.
