Drinks

Alcoholic drinks in Cuba fall into three categories: beer (Cristal, Hatuey), locally produced wine, and rum containing drinks. The Floridita bar and restaurant, a Hemingway hangout, claims to be the home of the famous Cuban daiquiri. Hemingway used to sit in a Northeast corner chair at the bar in the Floridita and watch passersbys on Obispo. The visitor can have his picture taken next to Hemingway's chair but can not sit upon it.

The mojito is the second drink gaining notoriety from the writings and exploits of Hemingway and others. Mojitos are occasionally characterized as a rum lime/lemon mint julep. The famous bar and restaurant associated with serving Hemingway his mojitos is La Bodeguita del Medio which is located about 1/2 block West of the Cathedral of Habana. Mojitos and daiquiris at these famous bars cost about US$6.00. Equivalent drinks, sometimes even better, can be enjoyed at local bars and restaurants for US$1.00 and without the competition for tables and chairs by tourists at the more famous bars.
