Stay Cool This Summer with New Cocktails at Kuro New-Style Japanese Restaurant at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (July 5, 2017) – Kuro, the acclaimed new-style Japanese restaurant located inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, has introduced  three new handcrafted cocktails to its creative mixology program. Highlighting fresh Japanese ingredients in modern recipes with hints of classic flavors, Kuro’s cocktails pair harmoniously with Executive Chef Alex Q. Becker’s handcrafted artisanal cuisine. The new menu additions celebrate the summer season and offer a sensory excursion that is refreshing, inventive and flavor-forward.

Offering guests the option to select a drink that most appeals to their particular palate, the cocktails at Kuro are divided into categories based on the five flavor profiles: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami.

New cocktails include the sour Jyu Go, combining a matcha-infused shōchū with Falernum, passion fruit, lemon, and lime. Created with summer in mind, the Jyu Go is a light, refreshing seasonal cocktail that provides the perfect balance of tropical flavor from the passion fruit, sweetness from the Falernum and earthiness from the shōchū. Representing salty is the Jyu Roku – Pisco Porton, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, strawberry, blackberry, pomegranate, lemon, lime, ichimi and salt. Offering a multitude of flavors from the fruitiness of the pisco and the smokiness of the mezcal, the Jyu Roku is a layered cocktail that provides dimension and variation on the palate that continues even after the first sip. The Jyu Nana highlights a bitter profile and is made with Montenegro Amaro, Cruzan Rum, honey, salt, hand-whipped cream and chocolate, topped with puff soba crumbles. Crafted to be approachable, the Jyu Nana can be enjoyed individually or, because of its notes of dark chocolate and molasses, can be paired with one of the restaurant’s delectable dessert creations.

Kuro is located at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at One Seminole Way in Hollywood, Florida. Dinner is served Tuesday – Thursday and Sunday, 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Telephone: 800-937-0010; www.seminolehardrockhollywood.com.
