The Madison Avenue is a great drink similar to the Mojito, but just a little bit different.

The creator of the drink was Eddie Woeke, who worked at the Weylin Bar around 1936. The bar was located in a hotel of the same name on Madison Avenue in New York City which was built in 1921. What this cocktail has to offer is a rum base with a hint of mint and orange and it is all served on the rocks. It's refreshing and overall a nicely balanced drink.
