Cocktail Lessons

Learn to prepare, step by step, the most popular and typical drinks of Cuenca, Ecuador. In this class you'll get to know the ingredients for each cocktail, history and experience a new sensation for the palate and the spirit. The liquor most consumed is called "punta" (sugar cane spirit), being Zhumir the most popular brand. In village festivals or parties in the Andes, we prepare Canelazo, this is a hot preparation made with cinnamon. Chicha is a thick drink made with fermented corn, bananas, cassava, quinoa or chonta palm. It is generally prepared in the Amazon region and is said to help against kidney stone, occlusion and colics.
