I found the Cuban Rose in the "Cuban Concoctions" chapter of The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. It is one of those simple rum cocktails that were a hit in the early 20th century and it brings together one of my favorite flavor combinations of orange juice and grenadine.

I find it interesting that every cocktail in this section lists "Bacardi" instead of "rum" - as if the brand were the only rum available for a "truly" Cuban cocktail. Where Bacardi may have been the preferred choice of the time, and used more as a generic term for the all rums, I like to explore the different white rums in many cocktails like this.
