Review:

"The Carta Switchel is based on a 17th Century recipe known as a Switchel, that was first developed by the sugarcane field workers of the Caribbean and gave birth to what the world now knows as the Rum Swizzle; the key difference being the recipe specifically called for vinegar. Bacardí Carta Blanca & Carta Oro are used to create a more balanced and well rounded flavour, a technique that has been used in rum cocktails since the 1950s Tiki era."

We say: Complex and very refreshing. Unlike many of the other drinks in Legacy 2016, rum is the predominant flavour but is brilliantly accentuated with grapefruit, fernet and vinegar.

History:

British BACARDÍ LEGACY 2016 winning cocktail by Iain Griffiths, Dandelyan, London.
