Christmas is celebrated all over the world. It doesn’t matter what culture you’re in, you’ll find a holiday cocktail in every corner of the globe. A Miami hotspot is combining recipes from all over Latin America with a taste of old Kentucky. Bottoms up!
CVLTVRA Restaurant opened its doors just last month.
The Miami eatery is getting rave reviews for its inventive, eclectic menu.
Andrew Penaran, CVLTVRA Restaurant: “The theme of the restaurant is a Latin restaurant with Mediterranean influences.”
Now CVLTVRA is serving up Latin culture with a creamy holiday drink.
Andrew Penaran: “The cocktail today is called La Abuelita. We take ingredients from different Latin American countries, combine them and give you two options on how to enjoy it.”
Andrew Penaran: “I’m gonna be making you La Abuelita, our take on a traditional holiday cocktail. We will start with 3 oz. of Mexican hot chocolate. Then we will do an ounce of agua rubina, 2 oz. of Markers Mark bourbon, two dashes of bitters and then we stir. Pour it into the chalice with a peppermint-crusted lip.”
Customer: “It is delicious, and it is perfect for Christmas.”
And if the weather outside is frightful, here’s something delightful — you can have it hot, too!
Andrew Penaran: “This is served in a coffee cup with a Nutella rim and a little serving of Nutella on the side.”
Hot or cold, this Christmas cocktail will give you a little culture and a little cheer.
