Know Your Costa Rican Non-Alcoholic Drinks!

By BobbyRica | September 30, 2008

Costa Rica is not really known for having a national drink since they don’t have one. However, they do have popular drinks. Like the ground rice or cornmeal drink with cinnamon flavor called “Horchata” and a strong but almost flavorless drink called “Guaro”. Two other drinks also famous in Costa Rica are “Pinolillo”, which is made out of corn and cocoa and a rice and barley drink called “Resbaladera”.

The coffee in Costa Rica is so good that a large percentage of this commodity of it is sold to other countries. It is common for the people in Costa Rica to serve effective and potent coffee mixed with milk (usually pasteurized). They call this beverage “Cafe con Leche” meaning coffee with milk . It’s really strong and very easy to make having a simple ratio of 50% coffee and 50% milk. They also serve black coffee which they call “Cafe sin Leche” meaning coffee without milk. Herb teas also abundant in Costa Rica.

In addition, carbonated drinks and sodas are very popular in Costa Rica. You can find Coke, Pepsi, Moutain Dew, sparkling water and other soft drinks available almost anywhere. They also have their own refreshing beverage which they call “refrescos”, it’s a stimulating drink made from their local fruits mango, papaya and tamarind and usually mixed with water or milk. You can get them easily in cartons and you can also order them in restaurants, it is common that these refrescos have high sugar level, but you can also order them without sugar.

Also, many drinks in Costa Rica have sugar. They even put sugar in their water, this is mainly to keep the field workers energized. They also sell coconut water that you drink from the coconut using a straw. You can easily get this drink from highway stops, roadsides and beaches.
