Two Cuban cocktails, the daiquiri and the mojito, stand out today among the world''s most sold cocktails.
A report by the Drinks International firm disclosed a list of 50 drinks of that type, in which the daiquiri ranks fourth and the mojito 12th. The first is considered the most ordered rum cocktail on the list. Four percent of the bars consulted by the firm ranked it as their first choice and 48 percent of the bars named it among the top 10. If it was good enough for Ernest Hemingway (American writer), it's good enough for the best bars in the world, the report says. On the mojito, 'another Hemingway favorite,' he notes that 20 percent of the bars consulted ranked him in their top 10. The president of the Cuban Bartenders Association, JosE Rafa Malem, expressed at the beginning of 2018 Cuba's aspiration to host the World Cocktail Championship in 2022.
