Having written about making and flavouring kombucha in our last post, we thought it would be appropriate to introduce to you our house-made rum infusions and brand-spanking new cocktail list now being served at Goldie’s, the in-house Casa Oro bar!
Coffee, passionfruit, watermelon, pineapple, ginger & lime, ginger dark rum, orange, coconut & jalapeño flavours are only just a start with some many fresh fruits readily available in Nicaragua, this kind of experimentation is bound to yield good results!
Most of our infusions are now being served as parts of our newly developed cocktail list or served straight up and over rocks. Thirsty yet? Not to worry if you don’t yet enjoy straight up spirits. Our cocktail list is sure to please.
As classics are a staple to any cocktail list, we’ve made sure to keep a few such as:
- Banana daquiri
- Pina Colada
We’ve shaken up some unique flavours for you using all Nicaraguan ingredients, such as:
- The Almost White-Russian: A combination of house-made coffee liquor, Flor de Cana rum, house-made coconut milk and a slice of banana.
- The Nica martini: Jalapeño infused flor de cana with fresh pressed lime juice shaken and strained.
- The Espresso martini: Matagalpa-sourced beans to extract two ounces of true espresso, house made coffee liquor & flor de cana rum.
Happy hour is on each day, between the hours of 6-8pm. We offer 2 for 1 cocktails at this time, meaning you and a friend (or just you) can enjoy two of Casa Oro’s delicious cocktails for only $5!
We are also pleased to announce that none of our cocktails contain refined sugar! All cocktails have been designed with ecological and health related wellness in mind. When it comes to making our liquors, some sweet is needed, so we’ve used the least amount of dulce possible- the step after raw and real cane juice, offering a deep, molasse flavour that you will get to enjoy in our coffee and ginger liquors. Otherwise rest easy and enjoy knowing that your beverage of choice at Casa Oro is free of all refined sugars!
As our ginger beer approaches its completion, we will be happily serving it by the glass and in our Dark N’ Stormy cocktail too, so stay tuned and if you happen to be in San Juan del Sur, we hope to see you at Goldie’s tonight!
