The cocktail, Hotel Nacional Special, is a historic cocktail served at the Hotel Nacional when it opened in Cuba created by Wil P. Taylor. This Spanish style cocktail requests a silver cuban rum but, being in the United States, we cannot purchase Cuban rum (sad).
The Hotel Nacional Special first appears in Charles H. Baker’s The Gentleman’s Companion, from 1939. It last appeared at….Common Man Cocktails!
