It is believed to date back to English Sea Captain Sir Francis Drake. Some of Drake´s antics don´t pitch him as the perfect poster boy for a Cocktail. The story goes that the ship´s stockpile of supplies was plundered and a little sugarcane spirit, Mint, and Lime made into a cup. Beyond Drake´s penchant for the finer things in life, the drink was thought to be medicinal.

In Cuba, they´ll serve the drink over cubed ice and the process is properly rapid, although not always balanced.


Aesthetically it´s not as pleasing - but then you´re in Cuba and, frankly who cares, right?
