#FoodTravelSeries Ep.6: A Taste of Puerto Rico

Since travel is not really in the cards for a lot of us right now, @flavorsfoodtours wanted to bring a taste of Puerto Rico to your home. In episode 6 of the food travel Series, Raul Olivo takes us to Puerto Rico with a classic Daiquiri drink and plays the Peurto Rican cuatro for us which is one of the skills he learned during quarantine. Daiquiri is a family of cocktails whose main ingredients are rum, citrus juice, and sugar or another sweetener. You can experience some of the best cocktails in the world here in Puerto Rico. Check out the previous post for more interesting facts about and the list of ingredients to make your own Daiquiri in the comfort of your home!

Flavors Food Tours was created to help travelers and locals discover the hidden culinary and cultural treasures in the off-the-beaten-path wherever they may roam. They offer tours in four locations: San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, St. Thomas, and Atlanta, Georgia. If you’re planning to travel to those countries in the near future, consider doing a food tour with them as this is a great way to experience food culture while travelling! Their goal is to tease the guest’s taste buds and share their culinary passions and the Flavors way of life. They are passionate about connecting people with local food makers and showcasing city sights.

While tours were on pause during COVID-19, @flavorsfoodtours released their Flavors Boxes – three variations of goodie filled boxes straight from the heart of Old San Juan – to support local businesses who collaborate with us on tours. You can find these at www.flavorsboxes.com.
