Cubano

Appetizer Cubano CocktailIt’s M.O.N.D.A.Y. Get your cocktail on! My children had a sweet friend, Burke who established a Monday evening cocktail group. Just for the hell of it. Just to begin the week properly. So, today I give you yet another delicious cocktail, The Cubano. Friday found TD (the don for new readers!) and me swooping up Gray and Liam at RDU and making the baby visiting rounds in “Dash” (affectionate name for Winston-Salem). The last stop was Single Brothers, the Yelle’s favorite watering hole from their lives there, prior to the Boston move. There we met up with two other babies/toddlers and their parents, where we shared a table and libations. The new seasonal drink menu had just been established and I enjoyed this Cubano. Remember, I love champagne! So, here you have it!

1 1/2 oz 10 Cane Rum
1 oz simple syrup
4 mint leaves
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
Splash of champagne

Muddle mint and syrup in cocktail shaker.
Fill with ice cubes.
Add lime juice and rum.
Shake vigorously.
Strain into stemmed glass.
Top off with champagne.
