Even though La Habana was a major hub for “cocktail tourism” during Prohibition, hundreds of miles away, in the colonial town of Trinidad, you’ll find a popular drink called the Canchánchara. This humble cocktail is one of Cuba’s oldest known drinks. It is built in clay pots and is composed of rum, lime juice, and honey. Grab a couple of clay pots from this little-known online store and whip yourself up one of these classic Cuban cocktails. Buen provecho!
