Gluten-Free Costa Rica Welcome DrinkEnjoy your Welcome Drink and the view at Arenas del Mar*

While I was consulting at Arenas del Mar, I got their Welcome Drink recipe for you! It may vary depending on the mood of the bartender and the fresh fruit available.

Arenas del Mar Welcome Drink Recipe


1 oz Rum
150 g pineapple
150 g coconut cream
2 tlbs mint leaves
1 cup of ice

Add all of the ingredients to blender, mix until blended.
Garnish with mint leaf


Note: Best with fresh ingredients, even better with fruit grown in Costa Rica ;)


*Is it weird I kept my earth-friendly bamboo straws as souvenirs?

    is rum safe for someone who is corn intolerant?

      Kelly says:


      Yes!!! Plain rum should be made from just sugar cane! Watch out for caramel colorings (from corn) though. Clear rum is safe!
