Cuban Affair | Cocktail Party

Cuban Affair

Cuban Affair cocktail with aged rum, banana syrup, allspice dram, chocolate bitters, and aromatic bitters

The Cuban Affair is a glorious Old Fashioned riff that tastes like eating a chocolate-covered banana after smoking a clove cigarette – but, like, in a good way.

The recipe is the brainchild of Andrei Campian from Manila’s Prisma. Campian calls for Havana Club 7, an aged Cuban rum with pronounced leather-tobacco-wood flavors. You can use whichever aged rum you like, but the drink will be best with a rum that has a similar character.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir all ingredients with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a dehydrated banana chip or a fresh banana slice (spritzed with citrus to keep it from browning).

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
