The cocktail bar owned by Javier Cejas, which is just outside his own unbeatable Negroni, is a tiki bar where waiters with slicked hair and skinny ties serve up refreshments mostly based on traditional recipes from tiki culture. In case you're wondering what that is, it's the aesthetic that was born in the United States after World War II, when returning soldiers found themselves strangely nostalgic for the South Pacific beaches. Cejas' obsession with this period makes the mixologists real experts with rum cocktails. And yes, that includes the revered mojito.
