The Old Cuban


Have you been to Cuba? Us neither—and, let’s be honest, we’re not going any time soon. But we have the next best thing!

So, throw Buena Vista Social Club on the stereo and grab your passport, cocktail enthusiasts and get ready to set sail.

  • 15ml Sugar Syrup
  • 30ml Lime Juice
  • 6-8 fresh mint leaves, including some to garnish
