Macuá Rum Cocktail

Vickie Parks


The Macuá cocktail is named for a Central American bird. This tropical fruity drink was created in 1996 in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, as part of a competition to designate Nicaragua's national cocktail. To create this cocktail, they used Flor de Caña rum. But any high quality, premium dry white rum should work equally well.
