Few activities elicit greater nostalgia and fond childhood memories than ice cream in the summertime — something Mexico’s all-inclusive Velas Resorts is happy to provide. Enjoy a childhood favorite with an adult twist and indulge in some boozy ice cream this summer.
A new happy hour event takes over Velas Resort properties in Los Cabos, Riviera Maya and Vallarta-Nayarit, with a range of alcohol-infused and cocktail-inspired ice cream scoops, floats and popsicles.
Head to Sky Bar at Grand Velas Los Cabos for happy hour, 6–7 p.m., for oceanfront views with a cool treat on a hot night. Try the red wine sorbet or sip on a cocktail of bourbon, sweet vermouth and a shot of espresso, poured over caramel-popcorn ice cream. For something with more of a kick, try the Ginger Reyes, made with a locally made spicy liqueur, Ancho Reyes, mixed with ginger ale and passion fruit sorbet.
Over on the Caribbean coast, Grand Velas Riviera Maya boasts a similar vibe at the Zen pool, secluded behind tranquil foliage. This space offers more wellness-focused treats (sans alcohol) in flavors like guava, lemon, strawberry cream, mango, green tea and horchata. For something more mature, head over to the adults-only Grand Class infinity pool and enjoy unique popsicles daily, 1–2 p.m. Try the chocolate mezcal, Kahlua, margarita, coconut rum, and gin and tonic popsicles with an unobstructed view of the ocean. These afternoon pick-me-ups are a great way to unwind and cool off, all in one.
Use the happy hours to kick off your night out or as an excuse to stay in. Either way, you’ll have that refreshing summertime treat to please your inner child, and that little buzzy kick your adult side craves on vacation.
