Sloppy Joe's Mojito
The Sloppy Joe’s Mojitio is a simple four ingredient pomegranate twist on the Mojito, which takes its name from the chic and bohemian Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Havana, which in turn takes its name from the famously ‘sloppy’ sandwich made on site.
The sandwich is actually a ropa vieja sandwich, a cuban national dish made from shredded flank steak and colourful vegetables that resemble a heap of colourful rags or ‘old clothes’.
The LA Times described the bar as “one of the most famous bars in the world" with "almost the status of a shrine.” It was one of the must visit sites in Havana before the cuban revolution in 1959. The bar was renowned for its cocktails and clientele with a regular patrons list including the part time author and full time barfly Ernest Hemingway, along with the actors Ava Gardner and John Wayne.
