La Vita Dulce

La Vita Dulce is a refreshing, Mexican-inspired cocktail. This wonderful drink has been around for centuries and continues to evolve as time goes by. This cocktail was invented in Colombia by a bartender. It is made from rum, mezcal and lime juice. Originally called the "El Diablo" – the devil – La Vita Dulce has been a favourite drink of Mexican people since time immemorial. It is believed that this name originated from the old belief that only those who drank it would live a happy life. In recent times, it was renamed to La Vita Dulce, meaning "the sweet life".
