Review:

Rum, lemon, bitter liqueur and basil combine brilliantly with champagne adding biscuity complexity, crispness and enlivening effervescence.

Variant:

Old Cuban

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Arash Ghassemi at Green Door & Schwarze Traube, Berlin and originally made with Bacardi Carta Blanca rum, this was the German Bacardí Legacy 2016 winning cocktail. Arash says, "Curtain Call is dedicated to the guests. It expresses my gratitude and desire to give something back and put my guests in the spotlight. Often thought, yet not said: "Thank You!" - the Curtain Call message."
