Your mouth may start watering as you gaze down the list of the best drinks to be found while vacationing in Costa Rica. Many of the cocktails are only found here.
1. Chili Guaro
You will pretty much be able to find this spicy shot at any bar that you go to in Costa Rica, but the debate goes on among the people here in the office and pretty much all Ticos as to the bar that has the best Chili Guaro. The recipe is usually made and stored on a large scale in a mixing bowl with a bottle of Guaro, 10 to 11 mandarin limes and a bottle of Tabasco, but we can shorten it to make only one drink at a time.
You will need a martini shaker. Take about an ounce of Cacique-Guaro (the national liquor of Costa Rica), and add it to a wedge of squeezed mandarin lime juice. Keep an extra wedge or two of mandarin lime to place on the ring of the glass for decoration. Add another 2 to 3 dashes of Tabasco into the martini shaker with a pinch of salt and give it a good turn. Pour a shot or two, and garnish with a wedge of mandarin lime.
