Now this stuff is good.
I was never much of a spirits drinker before but Nicaragua's Flora De Cana is universally loved by locals and gringos alike. I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't smack their lips at the very mention of the stuff.
I've tried it numerous way. Personally it works best for me with a splash of soda and a twist of lime but it's good with ginger ale too. It's just so smooth - even neat it slips down without the slightest twinge.
This particular bottle is for Vladimir whose had the thankless task of attempting to teach us Spanish. Ourwoman's good progress is testimony to his teaching ability, my slow progress is testimony to my linguistic failings.
So why are we giving him presents? Well the lessons come to an end tomorrow as we prepare to head off.
Yes, we're cutting our Nica adventure short. More info soon.
Side note: If anyone is looking for a translator/guide/Spanish teacher then I can't praise Vladimir highly enough. If you want his email address then drop me a line.
