The title of this post is the perfect description for each and every day of our trips in Central America.
In Costa Rica try Centenario rum. Yum.
In Panama drink Ron Abuelo rum. As my husband likes to say, "Not too Chablis."
In Belize try the singular One Barrel rum. But Five Barrel is even better.
In Guatemala drink...I'll let you know next year!
But in Nicaragua, enjoy the best of the best. Flor de Cana rum.
We toured the distillery last January near the city of Leon. The tour was kind of a dog and pony show. Even so, we got to sip rum aged for 18 years. This would be pretty darn exciting, if we didn't have the same delicious aged rum lurking in our liquor cabinet right now. We also have 12 year. If we keep our bottles around long enough, we won't have to splurge for their creme de la creme...25 year rum. We've been enjoying Flor de Cana rum since we randomly picked up a bottle of number 4 in Costa Rica. Ten happy years ago.
Flor de Cana and coke light with a view. Our vacation trick is to freeze ice in the bottom of a glass. You know you aren't drinking fast enough if the ice seal pops up before you are done. Smile.
A groove-billed Ani. (watching them on the roof tops is a serious happy hour activity)
But sunset is the real feature. The big show.
And Puff. Our vacation cats.
These days of rum and sunsets were enjoyed at Palermo in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
Heaven on earth as the Jesus statue will testify.
