Miriam’s Sauce & Spirits is the kind of cocktail bar that you wish you had in your neighborhood; and if you live in Centro Puerto Vallarta – you do! A unique mix of artisan gourmet shop, small plate restaurant and intimate cocktail bar, Miriam’s is the (air-conditioned) place to go to escape the scorching heat or the deafening clubs on the Malecón.
Cocktails are made from scratch, inspired by the flavors of Mexico or using seasonal produce such as guanabana, maracuyá and mango.
Mexican food is lovingly prepared with fresh local ingredients; ceviche is made with catch of the day, fresh from the waters of Banderas Bay and the naturally blue corn totopos and tostadas are sourced from a farmer south of the town.
Each dish, each cocktail has so much thought and effort behind it (try squeezing a sack of limes by hand and you’ll start to understand) that you cannot help but notice the difference.
Miriam’s most popular cocktails include the classic Margarita, made totally from scratch like you’ve never tasted before and the rich Piña Cocada, an adult riff on the traditional Latin American coconut candy and a 6-hour preparation process behind the scenes. Pair a cocktail with a small plate from the tapas-like menu, such as the Ceviche Tostada or the Totopos Enmoladas which is perfect for sharing.
We now offer cocktail and sauce making classes every Thursday from 3pm-5pm.
