When we show up he doesn't even have to ask us what we want. He knows! He then will have to show the other bartenders how to make them because other patrons get curious and want to try them. He makes them THE BEST though and so when he's working we always insist he make ours. At Happy Hour when they are two for one, he usually makes enough that we get FOUR drinks for the price of one! He calls it "extra"! LOL So what is a Cabuya you ask...it's a frozen drink that has Bailey's, Coconut Cream, Creme de Banana, Ponche Crema, Triple Sec and a fresh banana. When you mix all these things together, they blend perfectly so you don't get an overwhelming taste of banana or coconut. My husband doesn't care for either but he loves Cabuya's! During our stay they usually make this the "drink of the day" at least one of the days. Next time you're in Aruba, head on over to the Pega Pega for Happy Hour and ask Ignacio to make you a Cabuya!

    This sounds great! Ignacio is our favorite bartender in Aruba. We don't get to stay at Manchebo as much as we used to. We used to stay there for add on nights after we left the timeshare. We always go over to Manchebo for happy hour once or twice on each visit, so we can visit with the bar staff. My husband swears that nobody makes a brown lady on the island as well as Ignacio, and we love the extra glass full of left overs. I hope that I remember this drink so that I can ask him to make one for me next time.

    I've had Icgancio's brown ladies and they are good! We actually started drinking those before we switched to the Cabuyas. Hope you get to try one next time you are there!

    Merlot (8 to 15 fl) found at any convenience store (Uni Casa Supermarket, SF, etc). If I'm offered a beer it's typically Balashi.
