Cuba Libre general manager McGarrit Franco unites rum and tequila for one sultry summer cocktail.
“You would not expect it, but these two spirits pair well together, especially with fresh juices and muddled fruits to create fresh concoctions. I recommend our new cocktail for summer, Summer Breeze, a mix of ginger, pineapple, Ron Matusalem 15-year rum, and Jose Cuervo Platino tequila. We strain the crisp ingredients into a chilled martini glass and garnish it with a spicy sugar rim and orange twist.”10 S. Second St., 215-627-0666
