LET ME SHARE WITH YOU MY COSTA RICAN food

Chiliguaro is a spicy shot using Guaro, a sugar cane-distilled liquor make in Costa Rica.
I thought it was about time to give you a Costa Rican drink recipe. I figured what could be better than Chiliguaro, Costa Rican's official celebration drink
Chiliguaro shots have a nice kick while feel pretty refreshing and yummy all at once, because of that, it is pretty easy to drink not just one but a few. It is very similar to a bloody mary.
There are a lot of variations to the recipe, some have more ingredients, some less. This one is my personal recipe using a little bit of the Costa Rican staple flavors: onion, pepper and cilantro and not as much of tabasco, since I don't like them too spicy. Enjoy and Salud!
serving size: 800ml
2 cups tomato juice
2/3 cups guaro* or as much as you want 😉
1/2 cup naranja agria or lime juice
1 tbsp chopped onion
1 tbsp chopped red pepper
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp lizano sauce
1/4 tsp tabasco
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
* guaro is a sugar cane-distilled liquor make in Costa Rica. The most popular brand is Cacique.
Blend all the ingredients, strain and storage in a glass bottle in the fridge. Serve very cold in shot glasses.

If you cannot find Guaro ,what alcohol can you use?

Maybe you can use aguardiente or rum... They both are an alcoholic liquor distilled from sugarcane... Is not going to be the same flavor but it can be similar. 😉 Just an idea
