Spokane barware aficionado is planning a cocktail trip to Cuba

Spokane’s Raising the Bar is hosting a cocktail trip to Cuba – and now’s the time to sign up.

Participants will explore the cocktail culture of this island nation through its music, history, food, drink and people from Feb. 18 to 25.

The trip lasts eight days and seven nights, and includes meals, fees to museums and attractions, guided tours, four-star accommodations and cocktail lessons and tastings. It’s hosted in partnership with Cuba Unbound and Row Adventures and includes a visit to Finca Vigia, Ernest Hemingway’s house, as well as El Floridita, where a sculpture of the American author sits at the bar and travelers will get to try the famous daiquiri.

Mojitos are also on the menu. A ride down the Malecon in a classic car, a cabaret show at the Tropicana and a three-day excursion to Cienfuegos area also on the itinerary. The $3,490 price doesn’t include airfare. Save $200 by reserving by Nov. 15 with a $500 deposit. Space is limited to 18 travelers.
