Packaging Spotlight: Boris Cubana Libre

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“lg2boutique has created the packaging for the fifth line in the range of Boris products. On the shelf you now can find the refreshingly new Boris Cuba Libre. This drink that contains alcohol is available in a 500ml format and tastes like a Caribbean cola that tantalizes with its Cuban flavour. lg2boutique was inspired by some rather strong Caribbean icons, presented within their Latin culture. We can see these references in the phrases “carro Americano”, “la Estrella Solitaria” and the recognizable “habano”, all of which contribute to Cuba’s reputation.”

D-Day looms in bitter Cuba-US rum trademark war

There was the Cold War, the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis, and there is still no end in sight to U.S.-Cuban animosity. Now a bitter dispute over a sweet-tasting spirit appears to be nearing an end game after more than a decade of legal wrangling.

Time and again U.S. courts have ruled against Cuba in its fight to control the U.S. rights to the trademark Havana Club, the island's flagship rum brand that is sold in more than 120 countries around the world — but not in the United States.

By mid-June, Cuba could lose all chance of pressing its legal claims against Bacardi, which distributes a limited quantity of its own Havana Club rum in Florida and says it plans to expand to other U.S. states in the near future.

OYE Cuban Grill Twists American, Latin Flavors

OYE Cuban Grill offers casual Cuban American Fusion food, in a fresh approach to the traditional Latin dining experience. OYE Cuban Grill opened in March 2011.

OYE presents made-to-order fare in a setting that blends fast casual with a fine-dining environment. Conceptualized by father and son partners Hector and Ian Gutierrez, OYE is a brand encompassing the pair’s vision of establishing the American dream in Miami. OYE is an acronym for Organization of Young Entrepreneurs.

YE Cuban Grill pays omage to its Latin roots in a sleek, 3,000 square foot space designed to mimic Old World elegance. A lush terrace leads to an open-air dining room featuring dark wood-top tables surrounded by comfortable booths. Guests choosing to dine indoors are treated to flawless views of the restaurant’s exposed kitchen. Walls are blanketed in distressed brick. OYE also has an Inspiration Wall, whichdisplays handpicked quotes reminiscent of life in Cuba and the ambition of young entrepreneurs through scribbled Cuban proverbs and the whimsical lyrics of local musician Cris Cab.

Showcasing a selection of mouth-watering dishes, OYE Cuban Grill satisfies locals’ demand for a healthier Cuban eatery using locally grown products that are prepared fresh and made-to-order. The vintage-inspired menu unites classic Cuban plates with innovative preparation techniques, including Bistec Empanizado a la milensesa withcriollo, bolo ham, and melted cheese; Croquetas stuffed with beef, ham, or chorizo; and The OYE Wrap with grilled churrasco, sautéed onions, Mozzarella cheese, sweet plantains, and cabbage. Putting its own twist on the traditional frita, the OYE Burger combines seven ounces of ground beef and chorizo topped with fried potato strings. Creativity counts at OYE Cuban Grill, as guests are also encouraged to design their own custom sandwich, salad, or wrap, choosing from a large variety of fresh Latin ingredients and a selection of OYE’s original sauces such as Mango-Papaya Salsa, Creamy Mustard, or OYE Mojo Vinaigrette.

“OYE Cuban Grill sets itself apart from your typical Cuban restaurant in South Florida,” Ian Guitierrez says. “Our customers feel like they are at home in a warm environment with trusted friends where they can create their own experience.”

Embracing the American tradition of micro-brewed beers, OYE serves a variety from around the country, including draft and bottled beer such as Magic Hat No. 9, Monk in the Trunk, and America’s oldest brewed beer, Yuengling. The craft beers and OYE’s homemade sangria can be enjoyed in the back-of-the-house lounge that boasts large black sofas strategically placed to exude a relaxed, at-home feeling. Diners will be delighted at OYE’s Express Counter, where a quick stop means unique baked empanadas filled with guava and cheese, Cuban Donutsoozing with dulce de leche and handcrafted Pilon coffee.

OYE Cuban Grill is located in the Suniland Strip Mall at 11327 South Dixie Hwy., Pinecrest, Florida.
