Nicaragua is a country, which many still associate with the guerrilla war that tore it apart in the 1980's, however this country is eager to stand on its own feet again.
The culture of Nicaragua has a variety of influences, folk music fills the air and steamy climate makes of this land thirsty of refreshing drinks. Cuba's mojito is popular, (you can have two mojitos and feel good) and so it is Margarita and Tom Collins.
But Nicaragua does not have many cocktails to call its own. Despite a top quality domestic rum, bartenders borrow from others when mixing it. They add Coca-Cola and call the resulting drink a Nica Libre, which is really just a Cuba Libre. They add soda water or ice, which does little to make the resulting drink shout "Nicaragua!"
