Greek Bacardí Legacy 2014 winning cocktail created by Stelios Papadopoulos at 'Amigos' Mexican Bar-Restaurant in Athens, Greece.
My first thought when asked to create a Legacy cocktail was to look for extraordinary ingredients and do something difficult and complex. Then I realized that all the great cocktails that have inspired me were all about simplicity and balance. It became clear to me that 'simple' was the challenge!Stelios Papadopoulos, 2014
