7 typical Jalisco drinks for lovers of flavor and good life
In each of these typical drinks you will experience the magic of our origins and the richness of the Jalisco culture.
Join us as we explore together these liquid jewels that have been part of our history and tradition.
Tejuino: refreshing heritage of our land
The tejuino, with its ancestral soul, is a gift from our indigenous roots. Made from fermented corn and piloncillo, its fame is such that you will find it in various parts of the streets of La Perla Tapatía.
There’s nothing like enjoying it chilled, especially on those sunny days that make us long for a breath of fresh air. It is served with natural lemon juice, salt grains and an optional lemon snowball to enhance its unique flavor.
Fill yourself with morning energy with a pajarete
Imagine a sunrise in the fields of Jalisco, and just like that, with that essence that you feel, you will find the spirit of the pajarete. This combination of freshly milked cow’s or goat’s milk, brandy and hints of cinnamon and piloncillo is the perfect boost to start the day.
Chocolate, vanilla, eggnog, coffee or marzipan are also often added. It is best to enjoy it warm and accompany it with some delicious rolls or empanadas.
Escamocha: fruity party in every spoonful
Escamocha is like a dance of fruits in each glass. Fresh fruits such as papaya, banana, watermelon, pineapple and melon, diced, come together in a game of flavors with a touch of chamoy and orange juice that make it even more irresistible.
Serve it chilled and feel free to add your favorite fruit to personalize it. Accompany it with some exquisite ceviche tostadas and live the magic of Jalisco in each spoonful.
Our eternal passion, tequila
Who can talk about Jalisco without mentioning tequila? The elixir that represents us before the world. This blue agave distillate is the manifestation of our passion and pride.
To savor the complexity of its notes, we recommend enjoying it neat, at room temperature. But if you are looking for a more refreshing experience, dare to make a classic margarita with a twist of fresh lime.
Also accompany it with some delicious snacks, such as pork rinds or guacamole.

What is Raicilla?
Pots and cantaritos from Amatitán: friends of the celebrations
Casseroles and cantaritos are inseparable friends of Jalisco’s celebrations. The cazuelas, a mix of tequila, grapefruit soda, orange and lime, are ideal for sharing with friends. Cantaritos, on the other hand, are more intimate and personal.
If you want to live the complete experience of the cantaritos, surrounded by the culture and architecture of the Jalisco municipalities, you have to visit Amatitán, Jalisco.
Both cazuelas and cantaritos are perfect to accompany Mexican appetizers or main courses. However, to enhance the experience, accompany them with a delicious roast beef or some al pastor tacos.
The magic of Jalisco becomes more vibrant with each toast!
Vampiritos: with a spicy touch for the daring
If you are looking for an experience with a daring touch, the little vampires are for you. This spicy cocktail combines tomato, lemon, clamato, shrimp and various sauces, it is perfect for sunny afternoons or nights full of life.
Pair it with some delicious peanuts or ceviche tostadas to balance the heat with the freshness or to revive you after a night of fun.
Taste it very cold and discover the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.
Atole de cascarilla: warm and comforting hug.
For cold mornings or nights, cascarilla atole is a warm hug that comforts the soul. Made from corn, cinnamon, piloncillo and cocoa shells, it is like a liquid caress that embraces your senses.
Prepare it hot and serve it with some freshly baked shells for a comforting experience. It is one of the perfect ways to end the day in Jalisco.
Each of these typical drinks contains a bit of history, a pinch of magic and an immense love for our land. We invite you to let yourself be carried away by the discovery of flavors, to taste with an open heart and to share these delicacies with your loved ones on your next visit.
