Havana to Paris! Until 31 July, Café A of the former Convent of the Récollets is transformed into a Cuban quarter and offers the curious to learn how to concoct their own Mojito(s) on one of the prettiest terraces in the neighbourhood.

An original and summer operation orchestrated Little Havana, which proposes in parallel to the visitors to build a collective work by bringing an object of its choice and by assembling it to the assembly in place. A recovered and resolutely Cuban atmosphere, therefore, which awaits you in Caribbean joy a stone’s throw from the Canal Saint Martin.

By the way, do you know where the real Mojito came from?

From Cuba, it goes without saying. But, for your information, legend also tells that in the 19th century, the pirates of the ship”The Drake” consumed the sugar cane brandies produced on the island, arranged with some scented mint leaves. As early as 1910, lime juice was added to this beverage. Attracted by the play of blends, a Cuban barman officiating at LA CONCHA finally developed the modern recipe, a few decades later. You know everything. Health!
