The Original Cuban Mojito’s a highball staple that’ll never go out of style. As legend goes, the birth of the Mojito came in the 16th century when the plundering Englishman, Sir Frances Drake, ventured ashore in Cuba looking for a scurvy remedy for him and his crew. They came upon a local mixture of crude rum born from sugar cane, lime juices, and mint.
The Original Bourbon Old Fashioned was created in the late 19th century, deep in Kentucky bourbon country. A bartender at the Pendennis Club of Louisville developed it for a local distiller – James E. Pepper. Since then, the Bourbon Old Fashioned has taken on a life of its own, much to the delight of whiskey drinkers’ abound.
