Redeye to CDMX


United States of America

As a Latinx bartender of Cuban heritage, creating “Redeye to CDMX” was a personal journey into my broader Latin roots. Though I’m not Mexican, I feel a profound connection to the shared cultural and historical threads that bind us as Latin Americans.

Cocktail Inspiration

The inspiration was to capture the essence of Mesoamerican history, blending the old with the new, and creating a harmonious symphony of flavors that celebrate the spirit of Mexico.
