As the sun starts to shine, Havana Club is calling on bartenders to show us their spiced vibes and tell us what we should be sipping on this summer. The Cuban rum brand is challenging mixologists to create a cocktail using the brand new Havana Club Cuban Spiced which showcases the versatility of the spirit drink, for a chance to win a case of the brand’s newest variant. The winner will also feature in the August issue of Bar magazine with their crowning cocktail.
Launched last month exclusively in the UK, Havana Club Cuban Spiced is the brand’s first spiced variant. Taking inspiration from the vast tropical world of Cuba, it blends the brand’s double aged rum with exotic flavours, balancing the taste of sweet vanilla and aromatic spices with hints of juicy ripe guava, toasted coconut and fresh pineapple.
The tropical flavours of Havana Club Cuban Spiced pair perfectly with cola or ginger beer to elevate simple serves, or mixed with coconut water or other tropical fruit juices. Its versatility also lends Cuban Spiced as an ingredient to enrich classic cocktails such as a Spiced Daiquiri or Spiced Espresso Martini.
If you have an idea for a Havana Club Cuban Spiced cocktail that celebrates creativity and adds spice and excitement to the serve, submit your entry below. Don’t forget to share your inspiration, technique and how you would present your drink as submissions will be judged based on creativity. The closing date for entries is 30th June 2021.
