Guarapo For Better Sex? Sugarcane Smoothies in Shorecrest

Good news! Each time you've had guarapo with your Cuban frita, the sugarcane juice was probably lowering your total cholesterol. The juice can also improve sexual performance and increase sex drive when consumed with regularity.

Sugarcane juice and sex? Yes.

Two months ago, Edwin de los Santos and Karen Franco opened Guarapo Organic Juice Bar on NE 79th Street. The store sells smoothies blended with fresh sugarcane juice, in addition to pressed juices such as carrot, kale, ginger, and wheatgrass.

The best news? Juices are priced at less than $6. Some even go for $5.

In short, there's a new juicebar in Shorecrest where you can buy affordable love potions made with caña de azúcar.
