Old Cuban

Ingredients

Audrey Saunders is a New York bartending legend, best known for her work at Soho’s Pegu Club. The Old Cuban was created by Saunders in 2001, while she was working at a midtown restaurant called Beacon and the cocktail renaissance was just beginning. This cocktail recipe binds a Mojito and a French 75 – in holy matrimony.
