Drinking cocktails is one of the best ways to escape the summer heat. Of course, a good cocktail has to include my favourite ingredient the Flor de Caña rum from Nicaragua.
The rum inspired me to look for new drinks, and that is how I discovered the Macuá cocktail. A couple of years ago the Macuá cocktail was chosen as the national drink of Nicaragua.
I’ve never tried the cocktail when I was travelling in Nicaragua, but I discovered I missed out on a good drink! The orange and lime juice give it a refreshing taste which is perfect to cool you down.
- 2 parts (white) rum of Flor de Caña
- 2 parts guava juice
- 2 parts orange juice
- 1 part lime juice
- sugar to taste
- A handful of ice cubes
After some stirring your cocktail is ready. Decorate it with a slice of lime.
Close your eyes, take a sip and imagine yourself far far away in a tropical country… Salud!
