The Cubano. It’s the holy union of ham, pork, swiss, pickles and mustard pressed between two slices of Cuban bread. And because time is of the essence, we wondered: might one be able to drink their Cubano? “Yes” was the only acceptable answer.
We asked the intrepid barkeeps at the Rum Line if they’d assist with this important endeavor. And so, the Cubano Old Fashioned was born. It’s available now upon request. Or until the ham-rinsed rum runs out.
Yes, ham-rinsed rum. See, they’ve taken dark rum and soaked it with fatty ham and bacon. Then, they’ve mixed that meaty concoction with bread-and-butter-pickle syrup and mustard shrub. The whole thing is then garnished with dill pickle and a crunchy chicharrón. The result: a sweet, liquefied, Cubano sandwich. Science prevails.
If you’re in a time crunch for lunch, this could make up for time lost on things like... chewing.
Yeah, not really.
