Hazardous ingredients

Giffard Orgeat Syrup is potentially hazardous for those with an allergy, intolerance or medical condition.

History:

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!

I decided to choose one fruit, one herb, one nut and create a relationship good enough to be 'engaged' with a legacy rum and stand the test of time.

Stelios Papadopoulos, 2014
