cocktail friend: honduran hooch

Just got back from an incredible trip to Honduras. It might sound shocking being grapefriend, but when I’m in the tropics all I crave is a fruity cocktail and I rarely drink wine. Here are the best I had.

This is everywhere in Honduras. Not a huge fan of creamy drinks (too filling, too much food clash potential), but if you are this was actually delicious. 1 oz vodka 1 oz Kahlua 4 oz half-and-half 1 scoop ice cream 2 oz cream of coconut top with chocolate syrup

We stayed at this amazing eco-lodge in Pico Bonito National Park, and they serve you a Bonito Special upon arrival. It was fruit punch, cream of coconut, and rum. very refreshing for a rainforest welcome. I was more partial to the pineapple margarita, pictured on the right, which was just a margarita with fresh pineapple juice.

Not a huge fan of fruit punch or rum, so that fact that I liked this drink says a lot!

Honestly I don’t even know what this was. I ordered something banana and I got this pineapple situation. But how can you argue with an umbrella drink?

These were super delicious. And awesomely refreshing in the sun. 3/4 oz blackberry brandy 3/4 oz banana liqueur 1 oz dark rum 1 1/2 oz light rum 1 1/2 oz orange juice 1 1/2 oz pineapple juice 1/4 oz grenadine Ice

This is just your standard piña colada, but when it rains and you therefore have a private island all to yourself it tastes wayyy better ;) Happy new year! May your days be filled with cocktails under palapas. little french key roatan honduras

  1. Once served Rum Runners for a ‘Conch Republic Independence Day’ party. They went down like Kool-Aid! Yum. Excellent choices.
