Going to Grand Xcaret? Don’t Forget Your Bikini!

And no, we are not talking about swimwear!  This is a very special Bikini, made by Carlos Ernesto, one of our bartenders at the First Club in Grand Xcaret! This refreshing drink is perfect after a quick afternoon snack, or in the mornings, to sip by the pool (another great thing about being on vacation is actually drinking in the mornings!).

On your next trip to Grand Xcaret, don't forget your Bikini!

If you are craving a drink that is not so strong and summery, then this Bikini is the perfect one. It’s also easy enough to recreate it when you are at home dreaming with the Caribbean.

Make your own Bikini!






Banana Liquor

Lime Juice

Liquid Sugar

Club Soda


Red Wine


In a cocktail glass with ice mix all the ingredients except for the wine, grenadine and ice. Add the ice and mix well. Next,  add grenadine and with a spoon add the wine very slowly so it doesn’t blend. Garnish with a slice of lime and a cherry. Drink up!

Tip: When drinking your bikini, keep moving the straw upwards and you’ll get a taste of each flavor with every sip! Cheers!
