Chuchuhuasi Tree Bark (still haven't found this anywhere - so I leave it out)
Named after the immortal pirate/privateer Sir Francis Drake, most famous for his Caribbean exploits of the 16th Century. Legend has it he concocted this drink to rally his ailing men so they could sail their British ships away and escape with their 'commandeered' Spanish treasure. This cocktail is the father to the mojito and often referred to as the world's first cocktail.
