The Old Cuban Recipe
The Old Cuban cocktail is a summery drink that is immaculate and divine for anyone who loves sugary cocktails. The simple syrup and sparkling wine create an extra sweet foundation, while the amber rum and bitters round out the flavors.
It's a full-bodied cocktail with a mint finish. Fresh mint complements this sweet beverage for the perfect cocktail on a warm-weather afternoon. Pour the mixed ingredients over ice cubes or frozen whiskey rocks.
The Old Cuban is a great choice for any summer event, whether you're hosting a pool party or having friends over drinks.
