Cocktail Inspiration:

Bringing the Classic Cuban influences to florida with this spin on a Hotel National. After having a Hotel National in Cuba, my thoughts about what the drink could taste like with access to better quality of ingredients. Changing the balance, base spirit, and nose elevated this drink to a clean, light cocktail for hot weather climates.
