A TOAST TO FLORIDITA WITH A DAI­QUI­RI!

Excelencias Gourmet - - Tradiciones -

At the age of 200, Floridita is des­cri­bed as the ol­dest gas­tro­no­mic bu­si­ness in Cu­ba and La­tin Ame­ri­ca.

The­re are no re­cords on the exact da­te when it first ope­ned its doors, cir­ca 1817. Per­haps no­body ima­gi­ned that this pla­ce, which was born as a sim­ple inn na­med La Pi­ña de Pla­ta, would become a le­gend in the cocktail realm.

Nearly a cen­tury af­ter its ope­ning, fo­llo­wing the es­ta­blish­ment of the re­pu­blic in 1902, its na­med was chan­ged to “La Flo­ri­da”. For so­me reason, the cus­to­mers la­ter be­gan ca­lling the po­pu­lar bar “Floridita”, and the na­me has co­me to our days.
