Isla del Tesoro
'Isla del Tesoro' means 'Treasure Island'. Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel "Treasure Island" was the inspiration in naming this Cuban cocktail. The novel is set at the height of plundering seafaring pirates days and is an intriguing story about a young boy’s adventures in his quest for buried gold treasure on an island near Cuba. Aye, Matey!
