"El Camello Loco draws its inspiration from the warming of relations between Cuba and the US. This led me to think about making a twist on the Cuba Libre; I took the idea of a long, fresh, built in the glass drink and delved further into the history of Bacardí. They once produced Hatuey, the most popular beer in Cuba, and delivered every case with a block of ice so it was always served cold; this brought ice and beer into the equation. I also found out that Don Facundo's wife's grandmother Clara was the financier of the original Bacardí operations, which made me think of the Spanish cocktail Clara. And what better modifier than Bacardí's sister brand, Martini, to create an UNTAMEABLE drink?"

We say: Somewhat reminiscent of a Michelada without the spice, this is a very refreshing and enjoyable beer influenced cocktail. Strangely, the beer makes the lime shine.
