You don’t need a full bar to know how to make an amazing cocktail!

After spending a week in Costa Rica, I had to share one of their most popular and local cocktails – Chiliguaro, or Chili water.

It’s a Costa Rica take on the classic Bloody Mary. Now, this could be in a shot form or a cocktail form – totally up to you!

You will need:

  • Vodka
  • Tomato juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Tabasco
  • Lime for garnish


  1. Get out your cocktail shaker.
  2. Combine all ingredients
  3. STIR
  4. Pour mixture into shot glasses or your cocktail glass.
  5. Garnish with lime.
