Dozens of bartenders from the Americas gathered in Havana on Sunday to create a giant Cuba Libre cocktail.

The giant drink-making event starts the regional bartender competitions and pays homage to one of the most famous drinks in the world.

Bartenders from Cuba, as well as those from countries such as the United States, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Peru and Nicaragua assisted in the making of the cocktail.

The mix was offered to visitors and others who congregated at the courtyard of Hotel Habana Libre, the host of the event.

The gathering kicked off the XXII Pan American Cocktail Championships that will be held in Cuba all week and in which 200 professionals participate.
