Mensagem:  CR, real men in Costa Rica drink either "guaro" (legal) or "chirrite" (contraband, moonshine, popskull, blue gas, white lightnin'!  "Guaro" (pronounced "wah-ro") is not quite the same as cachaca.  It has a different smell and taste.  It's sometimes used here to make caipirinhas and whisky sours (called guaro sours).  Cheap.  Cheaper than standard rum.  In Peru I found cachaca's Spanish speaking brother, and it was called "canazo".  A literal translation would be "hit by sugarcane". 

Speaking of sugarcane, I found "caldo de cana" in Colombia, but they have a different name for it.  And they add lemon juice to it.  Outstanding.  It's probably just as bad for you in Colombia as it is in Brazil, but it tastes oh so good!
