Guaro is a liquor made in many places in South and Central America. A clear liquid distilled from sugar cane juices, it has a slightly sweeter taste than comparable liquors. Guaro is a popular alcoholic drink in Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras and Guatemala, although in many places the word "guaro" can refer to almost any liquor.
The name "Guaro" came from Central America. Colombians call it Aguardiente. Sometimes guaro is referred to as a "soft vodka" because it has a lower alcohol content than vodka.
