"El Chupacabra" translates to "goat sucker" in Spanish and it is a mythical creature that is believe to attack farmer's animals. While this drink has nothing to do with sucking on goats, it will get you drunk. We used to run this as a Cinco de Mayo drink special at a bar that I worked at. It's on the sweeter side and they pack a punch, so please enjoy responsibly.
