"My drink was inspired by my life philosophy: a good life needs balance. The same goes for a good drink. Each ingredient in my drink represents a different aspect of life. The foundation of it all is passion, which is represented by Bacardí rum; pineapple is the symbol of hospitality. Hard times are represented by grapefruit and Campari, which give depth and allow you to enjoy the sweetness of honey, the victories in life. The sage is added to remind us that we must stay grounded and down to earth - that is my simple truth."

We say: Rum laced honeyed pineapple and grapefruit with a bitter hint of Campari and herbal sage notes.
