Hotel Nacional

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

According to A. S. Crockett's 1935 Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book, the National Cocktail was one of the signature drinks at Havana's Hotel Nacional de Cuba. Mixologist Richard Boccato's version switches in smooth añejo rum for the National's white rum, uses lime juice instead of lemon and adds simple syrup.
