La Trova Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit
About La Trova Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit from Shaker & Spoon
Curiada is now offering some of Shaker & Spoon's most popular cocktail kits, optionally paired with the recommended spirit.
Each kit delivers a complete cocktail experience with the speciality ingredients you need—syrups, bitters, garnishes, aromatics, and more—included in the kit; you just add the liquor.
Priority USPS shipping is included in this item's pricing. If spirits are also purchased, shipping for spirits will be charged separately, as spirits and kits ship separately. In this case, you will receive two separate tracking numbers via email.
The La Trova Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit Includes:
- 4 fl oz cafecito syrup
- 1/2 fl oz Scrappy's Chocolate Bitters
- 3 ml aromatic orange oil
- 1 bag coffee beans
- 1 Japanese-style jigger with inner measurement markings
- recipe card with detailed step-by-step instructions
- Enough for 8 drinks, with plenty of rum remaining—just add aged rum!
Come on down to Cuba, where the vibes are strong and the coffee is too!
Cuba’s drinking culture has deep roots and has been dutifully carried through generations by cantineros—highly skilled bartenders with dashes of Cuban cultural ambassadorship mixed in. Julio Cabrera, this cocktail's creator, is a proud leader of the movement in the US and his La Trova Old Fashioned thoroughly reflects the vibrant spirit of his homeland. The flavors of rum, espresso, and chocolate make for a bold and earthy combination offset by the uplifting aromas from orange oil and grated coffee bean.
Julio is known for his infectious personality and mouth-watering cocktails. He co-owns Cafe La Trova, a traditional 1950s-style Cuban bar and restaurant in Miami.
Curiada recommends R.L. Seale's Finest Barbados 12 Year Rum for its deep, rich flavor, a perfect complement to coffee.
Each Shaker & Spoon cocktail kit features a fantastic original cocktail recipe created by an industry-recognized bartender. Regular winners of Tales of the Cocktail's Spirited Awards and spots on the World's 50 Best Bars list are often tapped as Shaker & Spoon collaborators, not to mention other award winners, cocktail book authors, credited spirits experts, world travelers, and TV stars.
Only top quality ingredients are used to craft these cocktails. Specialty syrups are house-made by Shaker & Spoon, created in small batches in Red Hook, Brooklyn. And they source the best for everything else.
The recipe card will guide you through mixing and garnishing the cocktails, step by step, and the glossary explains any unfamiliar bartending terms. Just follow the instructions, and you'll create bar-quality drinks for yourself and anyone you'd like to share them with!
