What you'll do

This will be mostly and more important one cool learning experience! We will teach you the correct techniques for cocktail making, you will learn about the tropical fruits that we will use, where are they from, what flavor or contrast adds to the mix, how to peel and prepare them, decoration, and why we have chosen this specific fruit for the specific drink, for example, one acidity fruit would contrast with a sugary one or with a specific alcohol. The alcohol you use at home, you will see it different from now, because we will explain why we have chosen an specific rum, or tequila, and how you can substitute this one with a different one. You will discover new alcohols, the Costa Rican ones such as Cacique or Ron Centenario.

The best part is that you will try and drink all of the cocktails plus any craft beer on tap. This class will come with food to go with the drinks.
Other things to note
Transportation can be arranged from the hotels away from the center of town.

Making cocktails are always a great way to socialize and meet other people. There are many cocktails but I have been trying and exploring new local flavors to truly offer great quality delicious cocktails that I want to share with everyone. I have created new cool options from the regular known cocktails, for example, a regular margarita we have infused with jalapeños to make the tequila spicy. With this spicy margarita, we have created different options like Pineapple Margarita, or a Passion Fruit Margarita, with some cool twists that everyone is loving with exotic fruits! I want you to learn our techniques and show off back at home when you return from your vacation. Margaritas, caipirinhas, mojitos, and other local new drinks that you will learn how to create but also enjoy during the class!

We loved this experience! We were able to get a ride from a location not in town for an extra fee, very worth it for all the drinks we consumed to have a safe ride. We had such a good time connecting with Ceasar, Osmond and Daniel! We felt the experience was well worth it for just the conversations with them. They were such a friendly group and we got to share secrets back and forth between bartending in the states vs Costa Rica, and all our favorite liquors. We had fantastic drinks and AMAZING food to go along with conversation! We felt hands on and active through the entire evening. Well worth the price for this experience! Muchas gracias!

What a great time! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Cesar and Daniel! Cesar is a friendly guy who has come up with some great cocktails! It was fun to learn how to make them! The tacos were yummy! The chipotle sauce is out of this world! We laughed, shared stories, learned some “Costa Rican” language and had a great time! We will be back! Highly recommend Spectacolar Cantina!

This was a great overall experience and perfect thing to do having just landed in Costa Rica. The host was quite knowledgeable on making the drinks and he was accommodating to any and all of our needs.

I'm so glad that I chose this experience for my first evening in La Fortuna. Daniel was great and easy to contact. The mixing lessons were led by Cesar, who was amazing. Started things off with a small appetizer. Then we were given a menu to make selections for the drinks to learn about. I don't mix cocktails as a hobby, I just enjoy them. So having no strong background wasn't an issue and there was a lot to learn about. We discussed variations in liqour between different regions and shared our experiences with them. We got hands on experience making our own drinks. Then our choice of tacos which were ridiculously delicious. The experience lasted about 6 hours total. Will definitely be back again before I leave the area. I highly recommend you book this experience if you're considering it.
