Todos Santos is teaming with authentic restaurants and bars serving up some unforgettable craft cocktails unique to the Baja. We swung by some local hotspots and sampled their drink menus on the hunt for distinctive libations for you to try at home.
First on our beverage adventure is Gallo Azul Pizza Bar. Yes, they serve delicious pizza, but we also found their Basil Margaritas quite irresistible. Take it for a spin and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about.
