Cuban Rose Cocktail Recipe

A rose-colored cocktail from the early 20th century known as the “Cuban Rose,” it dates back to the days when Bacardi dominated the rum market (and did for most of the century). Actually, Bacardi was listed as the main ingredient in a 1934 bartending guide instead of rum. A time in American history in which bargoers were particularly fascinated by Cuba also coincided with the invention of this cocktail. This cocktail keeps its appeal over time with a delicious combination of orange juice and grenadine. Where Bacardi might have been the preferred choice back then and used as a generic term for all rum, white rum options like this are becoming more and more popular in cocktails like this.
