Cuba is best known for its classic cigars and cars, but did you know this nation has a proud coffee heritage? Indeed, there’s such a thing as the “Cuban espresso.” There’s also a fabulous cocktail that blends high-end Cuban rum with the refreshing notes of cold brew coffee: The Havana Café!
If you’re interested in a lesser-known Cuban cocktail, then this post is for you. And, as always, we couldn’t help adding a little Tribe CBD oil to this delicious drink!
CBD Havana Café Recipe
One of the rare features of the Havana Café cocktail is that it calls for añejo rum. Like tequila, the label “añejo” signifies this rum has been aged for years before going on the market. Since these dark rums are so premier, many people reserve them for sipping without extra ingredients.
However, if you want the authentic Havana Café experience, you’re going to have to splurge on the Havana Club’s añejo clásico rum variety. Apparently, the nuanced flavors in this well-aged rum marry beautifully with the other ingredients.
Of course, if you don’t feel like pouring this premium rum in your Havana Café, we won’t tell anyone your secret. Heck, you don’t even have to use Cuban rum to appreciate this drink’s flavors.
As always, we recommend using whatever spirits suit your drinking preferences. If you don’t let your guests know which rum you’re using, they probably won’t be able to spot a significant difference.
• 2 oz Havana Club añejo clásico rum
• ¾ oz sweet vermouth
• ½ oz cold brew coffee
• ½ oz simple syrup
• 1 dropperful Tribe CBD oil
• Lemon twist, optional
• Pour rum, sweet vermouth, coffee, and simple syrup into a mixing glass
• Add ice and stir for a few seconds
• Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass
• Top with Tribe CBD oil and a lemon twist
Everyone seems to have a different opinion on caffeine’s effects. For instance, some psychologists claim caffeine works wonders for anxiety, while others say it causes restlessness.
Like CBD, caffeine tends to affect each person differently at different doses. Currently, doctors recommend healthy adults drink no more than 400 mg of caffeine per day, but this could vary depending on your reaction.
By the way, a dropperful of Tribe CBD oil may help keep caffeine’s typical side effects in check. While there’s no scientific evidence regarding CBD’s impact on caffeine, many coffee drinkers claim CBD helps keep them calm and focused while enjoying a java-fueled “brain boost.”
