Campechana is a Cuban term meaning “little princess” or “little girl”. Campechana cocktails are a mix of the classic margarita, triple sec, and rum. The cocktail is sweetened with simple syrup and topped with a mix of pineapple, agave nectar, lime, and salt.
It was a tradition at my house growing up that if I wanted to drink something sweet, I would just let people mix their own mix. My mom was the only person I know who drinks this drink, and she does it by hand. So I was excited when I got a chance to try it at a party. I was excited because I could do it at home, and I have the ingredients I had in my fridge. So I was excited.
It’s interesting that I found out about the tradition because I used to make my own rum. I used to hang my homemade rums in the window, so I was a bit of a rum purist. I never could get the sweet and tangy taste that came from adding sweetener and citrus. But I still enjoy the tradition. I’m glad the video has shown me the proper way to make it.
That said, I am not a fan of the cocktail as I know it, because I have a hard time drinking rum when I don’t have a coconut base. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not used to the taste and the coconut has always been a bit too sweet. But I don’t think I’d really agree that it’s the coconut that’s the problem. I guess I would prefer a coconut base, which is probably why I haven’t tried it.
One of the reasons that I love this cocktail is because it’s easy to do and because it’s a drink that can be done for everyone. I’ve been in a few different types of situations where I’ve had no idea what to do or even what to drink. For example, I was with my brother at a birthday party. We’d never had a drink before so it was fun sitting at a table with a drink on the table.
I think it is pretty easy to drink and I dont think its that hard to make it. You just add the coconut base.
As a side note, Ive been told that a lot of people have said that the coconut base is to hard to get right. I havent tried it though, i just thought it would be fun to know that you can drink it.
I am glad to have met you and you are the nicest person Ive ever met. Ive seen your work in some of my favorite movies and it has brought a smile to my face. I hope to meet you sometime in the future.
A lot of people have had their suspicions about my work, mainly because of the name “Campechana.” I used to be a professional model, but then I went to college and got a degree in English, so I decided to go on and do something different. I also use a lot of memes, so I’m not ashamed of that. All that said, I think it’s quite cool to have a name that is sort of “half” Campechana.
