The name derives from a Cuban story about an American who visited a bar in Havana. Upon spotting two locals ordering a drink, he overheard one of them request 'lo mismo'. Not wanting to appear culturally crass, he confidently ordered himself a 'lo mismo', not realising it's actually a Spanish phrase meaning 'I'll have the same'. The rest as they say, is history.
