El Floridita

The "Floridita" Cocktail gets its name from the Floridita bar in Cuba. If you glance through various cocktail books, you will most likely find a variety of different drinks that go by this name, I'm not sure which one should be considered the original version, but this particular one I find to be quite delightful. You'll also learn about how to make homemade Grenadine in the process.


Rum 1 1/2 Ounce
Lime juice 1/2 Ounce
Sweet vermouth 1/2 Ounce
Grenadine 1/8 Ounce
White creme de cacao 1/8 Ounce
Ice cubes 1 Cup (16 tbs) , crushed
Lemon wheel 1/2 (for garnishing)



Shake rum, lime juice, sweet vermouth, grenadine and crème de cacao with ice.

Strain into cocktail glass.

Garnish with lemon wheel.


Serve and enjoy!
