Old cuban cocktail recipe

This cocktail was created by Pegu club owner Audrey Saunders in 20014 in New York, USA. If you are bored of having a Virgin mocktail then this is the drink you should go for. The drink is probably seen on more menus worldwide than any other Audrey Saunders creation, particularly in London.
