Two Cuban cocktails among the world's best sellers

Havana, January 10 (RHC)-- Two Cuban cocktails -- the daiquiri and the mojito -- feature among the world's most popular cocktails.  A report by the Drinks International firm disclosed a list of 50 cocktails, in which the daiquiri ranks fourth and the mojito 12th.

The daiquiri is considered the most popular rum cocktail on the list.  Four percent of 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 U.S. writer Ernest Hemingway, it's good enough for the best bars in the world, the report says.  Regarding the mojito, another Hemingway favorite, the report notes that 20 percent of the bars consulted ranked it in their top 10.

The president of the Cuban Bartenders Association, Jose Rafa Melem, announced early last year that Cuba hopes to host the World Cocktail Championship in 2022.
