Every Caribbean island will have its own signature drink, normally with rum.  In Aruba this is the
“Aruba Ariba”.  It is made with Coecoei, a liquor made from the sap of the agave plant and is only available in Aruba. As well as having a distinctive taste, Coecoei adds the punch to this cocktail as it is 100 proof alcohol in content.

This drink is made with three ingredient categories.  Liqours, liqueurs and juices.   It is best served in a tall clear glass to show the vibrant colours.

Bon Bini!
