A cocktail recipe from Nicaragua: the Macuá

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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!
