The Rooftop Bar at La Cocina de San Anton
At the end of the long day, Madrileños head to the rooftop terrace of La Cocina de San Anton for a mixed drink overlooking Madrid
. The terrace is a wonderful place to people watch: grab a chair or, if you are quick, one of the couches which line the narrow space. Although I had become accustomed to ordering a glass of rioja tinta, I could not help but order a Mojito when I saw the bartenders adding the boughs of mint into the busy blender. Rum Runners, Cuba Libres, Margaritas, Screwdrivers, were being assembled and delivered every few moments. I took my Mojito and brought my wife her frozen Daiquiri and the well salted bowl of nuts (the complimentary tapas one begins to expect with each drink in Madrid) and we sat and watched the sun dip behind one of the adjacent buildings and the day fade out.
