Alma de Cuba on Rittenhouse Row appeals to Philadelphia’s boundless taste for rum with gusto. Mouthwatering Mojitos, felt first in the hips, dot low-slung tables amid shimmering images of Havana. Every style of rum is represented here, including those best sipped from snifters, such as Grand Havana Reserva Excelencia and Appleton Extra. With dozens of labels, from fiery raw Brazilian cachaa to mellow, mature Venezuelan añejo, Alma de Cuba’s rum selection is muy caliente.
