Morro cocktail

Morro is one of the most popular drinks in Brazil. It was invented by an employee at the restaurant Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. It was first mixed in the 1950s to alleviate the pain of head chef George Morro’s sore throat and it has been a staple at Wardman since then.

The word “morro” comes from the Spanish word for black because of its dark color and spicy flavor. It is a crowd pleaser for any party. With a pleasing taste and a very high alcohol content, this drink will keep your party going!
