If there are three things that are true about cocktail contests around the world, it’s that not enough are held on beautiful rum producing islands, the drinks that win are far beyond the average home enthusiast’s ability to produce and that nowhere near enough are won by the talented women working behind bars around the globe.
Kudos then, to the Barcardi Legacy Cocktail comp, for rectifying these three in one fell swoop.
Check the video above, and go and buy some Cynar (seriously, why not name non marque products and make it easier for everyone) and Grenadine and get amongst.
