In summer, you can drink beers, red wine and soda, vermouth… but don’t forget about the mojito! Madrid isn’t Santo Domingo but you can find more and more bars that serve a delicious mojito. One of them is Rincón de la Habana, which reminisces of the legendary Cuban bars that Hemingway write about. Its central location (Calle Reyes, 6, behind Plaza de España) makes it an attractive destination to have a refreshing cocktail, among which we highlight the mojito but where you can also have strawberry daiquiris that are made right in front of you. It’s multicolour tropical decoration will also not leave you indifferent.
Also in a central area but somewhat more pleasant, on Calle de las Huertas, 56, is Elhecho, a small and cosy bar. Outside, they advertise their mojito and daiquiri, which they have been preparing for the last three decades. It is a historical bar in this district where you can have a quiet drink, in midweek if you can, because it gets quite busy during rush hour on weekends. It also has a long menu with gin and tonics, duly advised by the waiters.
