Christmas Serves ‘A Star is Born’ by @therumgentleman Max Warner of @havanaclubuk .
Launched recently in Berlin and Athens, this NEW! rum has been created BY and FOR bartenders with the ambition of creating more curiosity and desire for speciality rum in cocktails
#havanaclubprofessional series #editionb brings together the famous Cuban Maestros Roneros with legendary bartender and spirit creator @nickstrangeway, a collaboration which delivers flavours of oloroso sherry, complex notes which develop with toffee and peat (this is due to one of the bases being aged for 12 months in Islay Scotch Whisky casks.)
This incarnation, restricted to a handful of bars in London due to the limited 100 cases for the UK, is exclusively distributed by @speciality_drinks .
What better way to bring on the excitement and indulgence of the (Rum) season than enjoying it in a beautifully balanced drink, this one has been crafted by the team @genuineliquoretteldn .
40ml Havana Club Edition B
20ml #Dolin Dry
10ml Spiced Pear Molasses
1 dash Absinthe
2 dash Pink Salt
2 dash of Vinegar
Shaken and served in a Nick & Nora Glass.
Garnishes with dehydrated pear slice sprayed with edible gold dust.
Until January, this drink and the NEW! rum is exclusively available to enjoy at this bar only, although they have a unique service which might be worth taking advantage of…they also have a bottle shop!
Havana, you’ve completely enchanted and surprised me. Never thought I’d be this emotional setting foot here for the first time. I guess imagining how differently my life could have turned out had my Dad not left has totally humbled me. Grateful for the decision my Dad made but also grateful for my roots. I truly felt a kinship to this country, its culture, its people (and their incredible resilience), and its heart ❤️. Planning another trip asap.
Thought I would try a new cocktail holiday drink using some good Cuban Rum:
4 Cups unsweetened Apple cider
2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Tsp Allspice
1 Tea Bag Pouch (nutmeg, cloves, cardamon)
Simmer on low heat for about an hour, then add Havana Club dark rum and serve warm! (alternatively you can have the rum to the side. Have your guests pour their own, or for those that don't want the alcohol, its a pretty tasty hot apple cider by itself) I simmer my hot apple cider about an hour before guests are due to arrive. It gives your house such an amazing warm fragrance and aroma.
You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
Me, myself I got nothing to prove 🎶
