Cocktails at Home: Mayan Astrology Inspired Coz by Grand Velas Riviera Maya – Pursuitist

Guests traveling to Mexico and visiting Grand Velas Riviera Maya will be treated to a new cocktail menu inspired by local Mayan astrology.

The menu will showcase ancestral ingredients from Mexico, with thirteen cocktails based on traits of Mayan astrological signs. In the Mayan lunar calendar, a year is divided into thirteen moons of twenty-eight days, totaling 364 days. On the 365th day, called “The Day Where Time Does Not Exist,” the Mayans would celebrate.

Guests at Grand Velas Riviera Maya can celebrate every night through spring at the resort’s Sky Bar and Chaka Mayan restaurant. For those that can’t make it to Mexico, the resort’s bar manager Cecilia Sierra has shared the recipe for 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.
