Looking for a way to liven up this Valentine’s Day? Whether you’ll be celebrating with your soulmate, celebrating with your best gals or pals, or celebrating self-love, some locally made libations might be just the thing you need. This year, ditch the traditional silky reds and rosés for something more unique and perhaps even exotic. Here are some of the best Belizean wines and spirits for when you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day in Belize.
Smooth and sweet with a rich – and irresistible – aroma, blackberry wine, along with other fermented fruit wines, is a quintessential Belizean drink. Pair this local favorite with a dessert or a savory meal. Or, simply enjoy it by itself, preferably with some scenic views.
Cashew wine is another local favorite. Made from the exotic cashew fruit (not the nut), its flavor is a blend of sweet and tart. This beloved wine is best served very cold or over ice.
This premium gold rum was inspired by the beauty of Belize. With a smooth, mild vanilla taste, it makes for a great cocktail like a pina colada, a mojito, or a classic cuba libre.
Fans of the local craboo fruit (also known as nanche and known scientifically as Byrsonima crassifolia) will enjoy this uniquely flavored liqueur. Craboo is a rare grape indigenous to Central America. Use Nanche to make a sweet cocktail or sip on a little bit served cold.
