If you’re anything like us, you like to spend your weekends chilling with friends, eating good food, and sipping on some fine wine or cocktails (of course). The older we get, the more we find ourselves wanting to become cocktail connoisseurs—which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to learn the best of the best cocktail recipes from, well, the connoisseurs themselves. This week’s Cocktail DIY is coming all the way from Maya’s restaurant on the idyllic island of St. Barths. Don’t even try to tell us that the photos alone don’t make your mouth water.






1.5 oz Patron Silver tequila
1 oz Cointreau
0.5 oz lime juice (freshly squeezed)
1 oz grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed)
1 lime wedge
salt rimmer
1 lime wheel to garnish
flower of choice to garnish




1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake until well mixed.

2. Run the lime wedge along the rim of a martini glass. Cover the rim in salt.
