Creative Craft Cocktails

Poor Man’s Kitchen spawned from my love of craft cocktails and the creative process that goes into developing them. A bartender by trade, I often found myself purchasing similar products to create and develop artisanal cocktails at work. After growing tired of getting a small return on my investment in terms of both quantity and quality, I began creating my own brand in my Brooklyn apartment. A following soon developed and a product made its way onto the Bravo t.v. show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
The product received such high praise that I was encouraged to pursue the venture further.

Bar Products with a Family Flare.

In order to create something truly unique, I decided to personalize my product by incorporating elements from my family’s traditions and history.
The name ‘Poor Man’ stems from a translation of my mother’s maiden name, Poveromo, and all of the photos on the label are of my family, mainly my grandparents, growing up in the Bronx.
The project pays homage to my past while looking towards the future. I hope you enjoy getting creative with the products as much as I enjoy creating them.
No Strain, No Gain!
