This is from Gene Singletary, native Miamian, caterer extraordinaire and longtime friend of this blog:

This is why I freaking love Miami. This morning I went to the Home Depot and there in the parking lot, doing business as if he were the CEO of Home Depot, was a  real live Cuban entrepreneur, making Guarapo, AKA Sugar Cane Juice.  

For $1.00 I got an ice cold drink of pure sugar , complete with a touch of Everglades top soil and swamp water.  Delicious!!

What a country !!!!
