The Time Bomb cocktail has its origins in Cuba in the 1970s where it was invented by José Luis García Sánchez, who named it after his favorite childhood cartoon character Joe Palooka’s destructive “Time Bomb.” The name came from the fact that the drink is strong enough to “explode” after a few minutes. It is not meant to be finished quickly, so there is no need to rush, but rather enjoy it.
