The Old Cuban is a cocktail created by Audrey Sanders in 2001 while at Bemelmans bar at the Carlyle Hotel. It is considered a Modern Classic.


Old Cuban

  • 6 mint leaves
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup (1:1)
  • 1 1/2 ounces Bacardi 8 añejo rum
  • 1 hard dash Angostura bitters
  • 2 ounces high quality Champagne
  • lime wheel and mint sprig or sugar coated vanilla bean

In a cocktail shaker, muddle mint with lime juice and simple syrup. Add rum, bitters, and ice and shake well. Strain through fine-mesh sieve into a large chilled Champagne coupe and top with Champagne. Garnish with lime and mint or vanilla bean.
