Barrio's Old Cuban: Drink of the week

Old Cuban

There is something that many drinkers agree upon: mojitos are yummy. Rum, lime, mint, and a little something sweet equals warm weather drinking pleasure. Not content with serving any old mojito, Barrio makes theirs with a little something extra we call love. And in this case love means Mount Gay Rum, from warm and sunny Barbados, the freshest of crisp mint, a splash of bubbly cava, and a touch of bitters. Sipping this cocktail is like drinking from a mountain stream, so light, clear and delicate is she. Plus, the bitters give the drink a depth and finish that makes the proceeding more interesting. Also a believer that a lovely atmosphere makes drinks taste better, both Barrio locations add to the pleasure with their modern day Frieda Kahlo-esque black iron, red paint, and candlelit vibe.
