This cocktail (named after the macaw, a bird native to Central America) was crowned Nicaragua's national drink after it won a competition in 2006. Traditionally, this light, fruity beverage is garnished with a green maraschino cherry (which represents the lush green landscapes of Nicaragua) and a slice of orange.
