"Rum, roulette and racing; sugar, cigars and senoritas - these are the ingredients of this effervescent picture of what the tourist does in Cuba, what he sees, and what he drinks. First, as to what he drinks. Mr. Woon gives the real recipe of the Daiquiri as given to him by Facundo Bacardi himself, maker of 'the rum that cured a king and pickled a nation'. He tells you that there are seven thousand places in Havana where alcohol is sold, and helpfully lists the names of the best bartenders, and the drinks that made them famous". Illustrated with photographs. This highly sought after cocktail book and Cuba guide is basically unknown in a dustjacket.
