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, chocolate syrup to top it off!

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. These look amazing! I always wonder about drinks and food in such wonderful places. Is it really good or just who you are with and the surroundings that make it so good.

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