Drift Bar is based in the beautiful beach towns of Santa Teresa and Malpais on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. We provide professional bar services for all occasions with various options for size and budget. Whether planning your destination wedding, birthday party, New Years celebration, or just a gathering of friends for sunset drinks, we have all your bar needs covered.


A little about Drift concept…

Our concept is simple: remove all artificial ingredients from cocktails and replace with natural, fresh pressed juices. When using fresh fruits to make cocktail mixes, the need to add sugar is drastically reduced; when sugar is required we use unrefined organic sugar cane. Using a juicer we make our own fresh juices, infuse sodas and alcohol with herbs and spices, and offer a good selection of sugar-free cocktails. We avoid the use of sweet, artificial tasting store-bought liqueurs: instead we make our own in-house using only natural ingredients.

We believe in the concept “You are what you eat”… the same applies to what you drink. Less sugar in your cocktails means less hangover and our cocktails have the added bonus of being both tasty and nutritious. You see… drinking cocktails IS good for you!

Living in paradise, we are very environmentally conscious. We don’t like to see plastic washing up on our beaches, so we do all we can to make our bars as Eco friendly as possible. We offer biodegradable paper straws and bamboo stir sticks for our cocktails; and as all our drinks are made with fresh ingredients, we compost all fruit waste from making juices. To-Go cocktails: we’ll happily recycle all used bottles that customers return, and in an effort to avoid toxic plastic cups on the beach, we offer biodegradable cups at no charge. Pura Vida!


What we offer…

You can click on any the header options in the main menu above for more detailed information, but here’s the basic break down:


Full Bar Service (aka Drift Bar Select)

This package covers pretty much everything. Open bar for the duration of hours selected, which includes a great selection of liquor, 5 choices of specialty cocktails, local beer, privately imported wine, and optional Champagne toast. Why 5 specialty cocktails? Well.. because we don’t want your guests to order cocktails with the dreaded Coca Cola! We do have all regular mixers hidden behind the bar for those stuck in their ways, but with 5 delicious natural cocktails to choose from, guests tend to be pretty happy throughout the night!

Also included is delivery and setup of one of our wooden bars on location, all prep time and staff.


Self Serve Bars

Tell us how many guests and how many hours you’d like drinks to last and we’ll calculate what you need.
