If your trip to Bonaire can’t come any sooner, maybe a Green Bonaire cocktail will ease your pain for a while. The taste of Bonaire is undoubtably Cadushy of Bonaire Liqueur, a vibrant green cactus liqueur produced locally by Cadushy Distillery in Rincon, Bonaire. Visitors to Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino should make an effort to stop by Cadushy, the only distillery on the island. It makes a different type of specialty liqueur for each of six islands in the Dutch Caribbean, as well as rum, vodka and whiskey. You can sign up for a tasting and learn first-hand how the spirits are produced.
If you have a little Cadushy of Bonaire on hand, try mixing up the refreshing Green Bonaire.
