“Guava Mule”, a variation of the Moscow Mule.
May 16, 2018, Serafina Beach Hotel launched an innovative cocktail menu for lovers of the world of cocktails. The new proposal serves as a meeting point to socialize and – beyond quenching thirst – to share the experience of discovering the creativity of modern mixology, according to Pierre-Alex Maillard, general manager of the hotel.
The new menu was prepared by renowned Puerto Rican mixologists Leslie Cofresí and Roberto Berdecía, founders of Licorería Miramar, a gastronomic laboratory dedicated to the research and development of culinary values, with particular emphasis on cocktails.
The creations made specially for Serafina Beach Hotel by Licorería Miramar and presented by the mixologist, Edgar Morales, include a reinvention of classic combinations, such as: the tropical “Playa Spritz”, a variation of the Aperol Spritz; the bold “Guava Mule”, variation of the Moscow Mule; the “Aged Dram”, the “Old Fashioned” flagship of the house for lovers of whiskey, and the “Silk Road”, a nice variation of the Margarita on the rocks with sweet orange salt.
“Beachside”, a refreshing libation based on gin and ginger.
The menu also offers signature drinks such as the epic “aMare”, based on vodka with elderflower liqueur, and the “Beachside”, a refreshing libation based on gin and ginger, among others. “This collaboration with Licorería Miramar reaffirms the spirit of Serafina Beach Hotel to offer experiences,” said Maillard.
The new cocktail menu is now available at the aMare Restaurant Bar and at PiñaCo Bar, located in the lobby of Serafina Beach Hotel.
Inaugurated in March 2018, Serafina Beach Hotel was the most anticipated launch of a hotel in Puerto Rico. Located in the Condado district in San Juan, it is the first lifestyle-hotel concept created by the owners of the successful global brand, Serafina Restaurant Group. It offers 96 spacious and contemporary rooms, featuring huge floor-to-ceiling windows that provide spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the adjacent Condado Lagoon. The three exciting new food and drink concepts within the hotel include the emblematic Mediterranean seafood restaurant, aMare, the energetic PiñaCo bar, and By the Pool, the seductive bar next to the infinity pool overlooking the sea. Welcoming the vibrant culture of Puerto Rico, the “Experience the Island” concierge service offers guests authentic, exciting adventures to explore the bioluminescent bays, the historic city of Old San Juan, the majestic rainforest of El Yunque, and much more.

Licorería Miramar is the first gastronomic laboratory in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, dedicated to the research and development of culinary values, with particular emphasis on cocktails. Founded by the creators of La Factoría, it emerged to address the existing need among restaurants, hotels, and bars to have constant access to ingredients, recipes, techniques and top-level qualified personnel, which allows them to raise their quality standards. At its physical plant – currently under construction in the Miramar neighborhood of San Juan, Puerto Rico – the partners will have access to a high-tech industrial kitchen, an innovation laboratory and a retail commercial space aimed at both the expert and amateur public. Licorería Miramar seeks to become an engine of growth and education within the liquor and mixology community, where both professionals and amateurs can exchange ideas and passions.
