Bartender’s tips and advice
- The original recipe is from Puerto Rico – so think of palm trees, beaches, a cloudless sky, the sound of the waves… according to that recipe you serve the cocktails with freshly shaved ice though. So if you ever get the chance to buy an ice block, do it! Shave ice from the block (it’s a lot smoother than crushed ice), fill the glass with the ice and strain the drink into the glass to enjoy it the traditional way.
