Refrescos - Costa Rica beverages




Definition: Refrescos: Yum! Refrescos are a favorite Costa Rica beverage, resembling fruit smoothies or fruit shakes. A refresco is typically made with milk or water (if you're unsure whether the water is purified, go with milk) and one or more tropical fruits such as pineapple (pina), mango, strawberry (fresa) and coconut (coco). Because Costa Rica fruits are so flavorful, refrescos are likely to be the tastiest smoothies you've ever had.
Pronunciation: re-FRES-cos
Also Known As: smoothies, fruit shakes
Alternate Spellings: frescos
