The dudes behind the Broken Shaker is known for creative concoctions using fresh and unusual ingredients, from pineapple vinegar to mushroom bitters. But Truvia? Who knew?
Tonight, Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi are hosting a special industry night, with ten bartenders in the running to join the duo in a competition to create the best drink using the natural sweetener. Low cal plus boozy is a very Miami-appropriate combo, after all.
Spectators will score free drinks made with Truvia 6 to 8 p.m., with $7 drink specials (also made with Truvia) to follow for the rest of the night.
According to Orta, they decided to host the competition, "to showcase the talent of the different bartenders in Miami."
And it's not just a promotional deal. They always have the diet-friendly ingredient handy. "We have Truvia syrup behind the bar as an alternative for people that want low calorie cocktails," Orta says.
