Cuba Kola

Cuba Kola

Saveur reconstructed this recipe for the Cuba Kola, based on the one served at Ray Buhen’s long-running Tiki-Ti restaurant in LA. It’s a refreshing, straightforward tiki drink with a touch of added mystery from the anise liqueur.

Overproof Demerara rum can be difficult to find. The classic choice is Lemon Hart, but it has recently undergone a reformulation and for a time appeared to disappear from the market entirely. Hamilton 151 is a good substitute.

Saveur recommends a dark Jamaican rum. Jamaican rums tend to be more interesting and aromatic, and are a good choice for complex tropical cocktails where a more neutral rum flavor might be lost among all the other strongly-flavored ingredients.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
