The Piña Colada is one of the most famous cocktails in the world, reminiscent of an exotic, tropical, faraway beach. The name piña colada gets it's name from the principal ingredient, yellow pineapple juice.
This cocktail is the ultimate drink to enjoy when you arrive on a Caribbean beach. In the Dominican Republic, you can naturally find all the ingredients to make a delicious Piña Colada Cocktail – crushed fresh pineapple, coconut milk and, of course, Dominican rum. This cocktail is frothy, sweet and simply delicious!
The Mojito, a classic taste of the Caribbean, is an extremely refreshing cocktail. A combination of mint, lime, cane sugar, a slight measure of rum (recommended with Rum Anejo) and a splash of soda water. This fragrant cocktail originated in Havana, Cuba where it became famous when Ernest Hemingway adopted it as his signature cocktail.
In the Dominican Republic, mojitos are prepared with care, elevated to an art form by locals that have been creating unique and tasty variations. While in the Dominican Republic, you may also want to try a mojito prepared with fresh mango or chinola (passion fruit) juice for a unique twist on the classic.
Santo Libre is the most traditional drink of the Dominican Republic as the name suggests. It was created in the capital city of Santo Domingo and it’s a reinterpretation of the Cuba Libre.
This rum-based cocktail is simple and freshly composed with white rum, Club Soda or Sprite, and fresh lime. This cocktail is appealing to sample different rum flavors, and potent alcohol content. A fresh Santo Libre is perfect for a night out dancing to Dominican salsa or merengue music.
Enjoy one of these island drinks and prepare for some fun in the Dominican Republic. ¡hasta pronto!
