Thanks to all

We had such a great evening creating wonderful #ravennitrocoffee #coffeecocktails at our #throwdown at the Hyde Kensington #London.

First off, my great appreciation to Aly Roshdy and all at the Hyde Kensington where we have our OTC Raven Fridge Dispensing System.

First up was Aly Roshdy, master class mixologist, gentleman and General Manager of the Hyde Kensington in London. Known for his creativity, Aly focuses on the complete cocktail – the best and freshest ingredients, unique ingredients (like blending melted white chocolate into a vodka base), the glass which is used for the cocktail and the visual presentation. Take a look at the photo below. You’ll see what I mean.

When Aly sets his mind on a cocktail, he focuses on uniqueness of ingredients and presentation. He is a master class #mixologist #ravennitrocoffee

Next up was Diego Raidomi who is the consummate #mixologist. A complete knowledge and confidence to create cocktails based on his vast working experience behind the bar.

Straining ingredients into Diego’s Signature cocktail “Kick off”

Of the cocktails Diego created – which were all excellent – my favourite was “Kick Off”.  Diego used the following ingredients..

  • Raspberry muddled (2/3 raspberry)
  • 50 ml of vodka vanilla
  • 20 ml of lime
  • 25 ml of Raven nitro coffee
  • 20 ml of gum syrup
  • 3/4 mint leaves into the shaker
  • technique: shake and strain
  • Glass: JULEP
  • Garnish: MINT SPRING, BLUEBERRY, PHYSALIS, DRY LIME. ICE IN SUGAR

Next up was Jeremy Le Blanche who originates from the Nice area of Paris. Again, a true gentlemen whose friendliness and openness is not affected by his amazing skills at crafting cocktails.

His understanding of balancing a cocktail using #ravennitrocoffee was brilliant. Here is Jeremy’s “Raven Master Charger” cocktail…seriously, who wouldn’t like to sup on this creation….
