"The Canchanchara is an invigorating Cuban cocktail from the colonial town of Trinidad. The simple recipe calls for rum, lime, honey, and ice. Invented by guerilla fighters during the 10 Years War of Cuban independence, the Canchanchara is considered to be Cuba’s oldest known cocktail."

Step 1

Combine all ingredients and stir to mix. Serve over ice, with a lime wedge for garnish.

NOTE: the official rum of Cuba, Havana Club, is still fairly difficult to come by in the US. We used Bacardi white rum for this recipe. Bacardi, while currently produced in Puerto Rico, originated in Cuba and makes a good substitute.

I loved this refreshing and tasty drink. It's easy and made form ingredients I typically have on hand. Perfect. Made for CQ19.
