El Chupacabra Martini will set your honey’s heart afire. The fiery red blood orange juice infused with the explosive Brazilian aphrodisiac of acai is sure to make sparks fly.

Hints of guava and pineapple nectar in this drink are fruits from Puerto Rico (where Chupacabra sightings were first reported).

This sensuous drink with a beautiful mix of juices is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any romantic occasion.

You can barely taste the coconut rum in this sweet drink, which makes it extra dangerous, just like its namesake.
