El Chupacabra Martini

El Chupacabra Martini will set your honey’s heart afire. The fiery red blood orange juice infused with the explosive Brazilian aphrodisiac of acai is sure to make sparks fly.

Hints of guava and pineapple nectar in this drink are fruits from Puerto Rico (where Chupacabra sightings were first reported).

This sensuous drink with a beautiful mix of juices is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any romantic occasion.

You can barely taste the coconut rum in this sweet drink, which makes it extra dangerous, just like its namesake.

4 blood oranges, freshly squeezed or 1-cup juice

  6. This is one of the most refreshing drinks I’ve had in a LONG TIME! The blood oranges give this drink a FANTASTIC color and the coconut rum adds just a hint of coconut on the back-end that you will truly enjoy. Our wonderful hostess pre-mixed a large batch of the juices in a glass pitcher to showcase the beautiful color. This allowed her to quickly and easily serve her guests by pouring the mixture into a martini shaker (along with some rum, of course!) as people needed — or should I say DESIRED! — another drink. Everyone absolutely loved them, and I’m definitely looking forward to my next noche con El Chupacabra! (Not often you’ll hear that comment!) 🙂

    • LOL Brenda! It’s nice to hear from mi familia who has actually tasted some of our concoctions in the Muy Bueno test kitchen! Love ya! I’m thinking I’ll be making these again for my next fiesta unless I come up with a new cocktail by then which is entirely possible!
