    Book Description
    Underground Wine Journal, 1/00
    [A] lively celebration of all things Cuban... delightful.

    Product Description:
    This celebration of all things Cuban--cigars, bars, rum drinks and music--will delight recent visitors to Cuba and armchair travelers alike.

    The almost mythical lure of Cuba has charmed an abundance of tourists and famous visitors like Ernest Hemingway, who drank daiquiris at the now-famous Floridita bar. Rum Drinks and Havanas depicts the legendary Cuban bars and delicious daiquiris and mojitos that were created in them. Not only does it share the differences between various brands of rum, how rum is made, and the affects of aging, but it details recipes for over thirty traditional and inimitable drinks, including the Cuba Libre, a melange of daiquiris, and the Havana Special. Several recipes are variations based on the Floridita's famous patron or its bartender-Papa Hemingway Daiquiri and Daiquiri Don Rolando, amongthem.

    This book tells the tale of the unequaled Havana cigar-Cohibas and Montecristos-and it describes the secrets of growing tobacco and rolling cigars. It divulges how to buy and consume them in a discriminating way, and it details the differences between them. Mark Twain believed in a good cigar when he said, "If they don't allow cigar smoking inheaven, I don't want to go there."

    Cuba is also known for its bustling city life and carnivals-a celebration of the moment. Enjoy the mythical allure of Cuba with this charming book depicting all aspects of thisCaribbean island and inviting you to share in its drinks, cigars, and music.
