  • Dirty Monkey.

Don’t take it literally, no monkey has to suffer for you to enjoy this cocktail. If you have a sweet tooth, we recommend you try this combination. You just need a blender, lots of ice, milk, a fresh banana, coffee liqueur, sugar syrup and dark rum. And here’s the final result!

  • Mudslide

This cocktail looks like a chocolate dessert, but don’t let that fool you. To make it you’ll need coffee liqueur, vodka and sugar syrup. If you prefer, you can also use rum.


  • Piña Colada

If you like drinks with tropical fruits best, this is the one for you. This cocktail of Puerto Rican origin is one of the easiest to prepare. You just need three ingredients: white rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice. It’s best if served very cold and with ice.

  • Mojito

Our list couldn’t overlook a classic like this one. There are countless recipes and combinations with all types of fruits and aromatic herbs, but here we want to show you how to make the traditional version. You’ll need brown sugar, lime, fresh mint, rum and soda. A refreshing combination that goes great with any afternoon out of doors.


  • Caipirinha

Another of the most requested cocktails by our customers is the caipirinha from Brazil. You need almost the same ingredients as for the mojito: brown sugar, lime and soda. But this time, instead of rum, you’ll add cachaça. This liquor is obtained by distilling sugar cane juice. Another very refreshing combination for a summer day.
