“Mexican Pink (Rosa Mexicano) is a color used throughout Mexico and one that now represents Mexico City. It’s also the inspiration for this cocktail. Its bright pink color isn’t the only thing vibrant about this punch. Its tropical guava notes with hints of ginger spice make for a refreshing communal drink meant to be shared in celebracion (celebration). Enjoy!” – Jaime Salas
