Review:

“My cocktail is inspired by Dale DeGroff’s ‘Whiskey Smash’ and Joerg Meyer’s ‘Gin Basil Smash.’ It represents Don Facundo’s sweet and sour life. The olive oil floating on top of the cocktail symbolizes both the Mediterranean and Don Facundo’s first homemade rum that he used to sell in recycled olive oil tins.

“My cocktail is a mix between Latin and Mediterranean cultures so I have called it ‘El Mediterráneo’.”

History:

Lebanese BACARDÍ Legacy 2015 winning drink by Jad Ballout, Bar Manager at Central Station Boutique Bar in Beirut, Lebanon.
