Making great cocktails is as easy as 2 :1 :1

There's a bartender secret to making fantastic-tasting cocktails. For more than a century the professionals have known that a simple mixing ratio is the key to success: 2 parts alcohol to 1 part sweet to 1 part sour. This gives you a cocktail base that you can twist by adding the ingredients you like. Your cocktail will always be a success as long as your base mix has the right proportions.

In Cuba that translates into rum, sugar and lime: 2 part rum, 1 part sugar and 1 part lime. The Mojito, the Daiquiri and the Ron Collins are classic examples of how these three simple ingredients combined in the 2:1:1 ratio work like a dream on their own and are the perfect base for cocktail twists. Now, let’s get creative and add some new flavours! Do you have a yearning for passion fruit, watermelon, cloudberry or tabasco? You can experiment wildly as long as you stick to the 2:1:1 rule and keep #rumsugarlime as your cocktail base. First pick your measure: a shot glass, a coffee jar, or whatever you can lay your hands on. With Havana Club Añejo 3 Años as your starting point, get mixing!
