Farm-to-Table Cocktail From Costa Rica: Blue Osa’s Paradise Surprise Cooler

Who says you can’t indulge in a cocktail at a yoga retreat?

Welcome to the Buddah Bar at Blue Osa where we offer our guests beer, wine and a daily specialty, hand-crafted cocktail using fresh and local ingredients from our own garden!

Our kitchen likes to use as many fruits, vegetables and spices from our own garden as possible and our Paradise Surprise Cooler is full of them! Star fruit, mint, lemongrass, ginger and chiles are all grown on our property and make this zingy refreshment a crowd favorite.

To keep it even more local, we use “Costa Rican liqueur”. Cacique Guaro is a sugar cane-based liquor of high purity and is the best-selling distilled spirit in Costa Rica.

This summer cocktail is the perfect mix of fruit and spice. So give it a try at home or come visit us at Blue Osa and sip on one while you’re gazing out into the endless Golfo Dulce.
