When Hatuey beer was first brewed in Santiago de Cuba (birthplace of Desi Arnaz) long before the 1959 revolution, it was delivered with a block of ice to keep it crisp and cold in the tropical heat.
The brew was named after a famous Taino Indian who in 1511 tried to warn the inhabitants of Cuba the Spanish were about to invade, is poised to make a massive comeback with the help of spirits giant Bacardi.
Bacardi held a party last week at De Rodriguez Cuba on Ocean in South Beach to give invited guests, including Real Housewives of Miami cast members Alexia Echevarria and Cristy Rice, a first taste. Chef Douglas Rodriguez served a menu of Cuban-inspired dishes like whole roast pig, frita sliders and domino cakes.
