The American Bacardí Legacy 2014 winning cocktail created by Naomi Levy at Eastern Standard in Boston, USA.
My inspiration behind the cocktail is that of Bacardís legacy and how it can relate to my own.Naomi Levy, 2014
I had Cuba in mind when thinking of the flavors of the drink, but it was very important to me that the flavors tied into my own heritage. My family is from Israel and Guava juice was a staple in my house growing up. It also happens to be one of the most popular fruits in Cuba. I love the intercultural connection between two places on opposite sides of the world. This connection is what inspired me to use it in my drink. Pairing it with subtle earthy smoky flavors of another Cuban and Puerto Rican staple, coffee (with deep roots in Middle Eastern culture as well) and the bright herbal notes of cilantro highlights Bacardí's versatility while creating a new refreshing flavor combination that is somewhat unexpected.
