Few can resist being seduced by this popular liqueur made from Mexican coffee, and many include it in their list of gifts to bring back home. We asked two of Puerto Vallarta’s most innovative bartenders to create fresh new drinks using Kahlua as the centerpiece. Try them at home. But while in Puerto Vallarta, pamper yourself with these exclusive signature cocktails at two of the hottest restaurants in town.


1-1/2 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. chocolate vodka
1/2 oz. vanilla vodka
1/2 oz. espresso coffee
1/2 oz. Baileys Irish Cream

Pour Kahlua into a martini glass. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour over Kahlua and serve.

Cocktail Vitea

2 oz. Kahlua
1/2 oz. kiwi liqueur
1/2 oz. sloe gin
Orange juice

Pour Kahlua into a tulip glass. Add orange juice to taste. Float the kiwi liqueur and sloe gin. Garnish with a lime wedge and a maraschino cherry.

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”
