Named after one of the most historic bars in Havana, Cuba, this classic cocktail features crisp, vibrant flavors. I often describe it as a more sophisticated Cosmopolitan. For this version I used a homemade grenadine that I made by stirring together equal parts pomegranate juice and fine baker’s sugar until the sugar dissolved. Familiar notes of pomegranate and lime intermingle with more subtle hints of vermouth and cacao to produce a perfect spring happy hour offering.
