Cuban drinks go far beyond rum

Cuban cantineros, or bartenders, have been making Cuban cocktails for decades and are a defining feature of Cuba's pallet for refreshing drinks. Strolling through Havana you are likely to come across groups caught up in conversation, enjoying a cocktail or a cup of coffee, perhaps a cigar, or a game of dominoes.

Enjoy a night out at the Museum exploring the leisurely aspects of Cuba's rich culture. The evening will feature coffee tastings, drink mixing demonstrations and an opportunity to explore ¡Cuba! the exhibition. Each ticket includes one classic mojito.
