Mixx is an ice-cream shop in Ecuador‘s city of Cuenca that sure knows what Latins like!
I’m a very regular kind of girl when it comes to ice-cream. Give me a scoop of chocolate or mint chocolate chip and you’ll see me smile like a kiddo.
But… if you need an alternative method to make me smile even more, get me tipsy with ice-cream. That’s right, ice-cream!
Apart from the array of typical flavors and exotic fruit treats that Mixx offers, customers get their kicks with the alcoholic versions that include:
- Red Bull & Jaegermeister
- Cuba Libre
- Vodka & Orange
We were recommended this frozen gem by a virtual Ecuadorian friend on reddit.com and enjoyed a Cuba Libre and Screwdriver treat in the cold weather.
Funny thing about these ice-creams is that they feel totally refreshing in the mouth but leave you with a warm sensation in the throat, that suits you just nice on a rainy day in Cuenca!

I’m not a fan of boozy desserts myself, but i would try the cuba libre, or perhaps the vermouth with lemon..
I’m not a fan of alcoholic deserts myself – particularly fruit salad with Port Wine, like they do in Portugal sometimes! :S But you’d be surprised how well it goes in ice-cream!! :)
We tried Champagne Gelato in Rome and Pina Colada in Sardinia… but all these flavors look amazing. Seems like we have a good reason to go Ecuador! :)
There are plenty of good reasons to visit Ecuador!! ;)
Now I’m getting hungry and dreaming of Gelate! :) I’m off to Lisbon and Fatima in July so I can’t wait to dig into some of my favourite Portuguese treats!
Agness, if you like gelato, do not miss SANTINIS when you’re in Lisbon!
It’s a very popular ice-cream place in Baixa-Chiado, right next to the well-known Armazens do Chiados. Sometimes the lines are crazy.. but the treats are so good! :)
I mean gelato.
