Various legends about the origins of the custom of having small snacks with a drink—an age-old tradition in Spanish inns and taverns—have been attributed to various monarchs. It is a tradition that features in works such as the 17th-century novel "Don Quixote," which mentions herring and rabbit "empanadas" (pastries), among other snacks.
