How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

*Special ingredient #1: Banana paste made by blending 3 bananas with 350ml simple syrup and straining into a clean bottle. Will keep for 2 days in the fridge.

1 2/3 fl oz Bacardi 8 year old rum
1/4 fl oz Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
1 1/6 fl oz *Special ingredient #1 (see above)
5/6 fl oz Lime juice (freshly squeezed)
1/6 fl oz Giffard Sugar Cane Syrup
3 drop Angostura Aromatic Bitters

Making the above recipe we found ourselves pondering why the 5ml of sugar syrup was not incorporated in to the banana paste. The finished drink is basically a banana and maraschino influenced aged rum daiquiri.


Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Ludovico De Biaggi at BASA Basement Bar & Restaurant, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Inspiration: “Tropical Lady is an elegant Tiki cocktail, inspired by family and the Latin spirit of sharing. My parents are bar and restaurant owners in Buenos Aires and since I was very young they taught me the importance of sharing moments and knowledge to make a legacy endure.

“They share the passion of doing what they love; it is that same passion that drives me to always be searching. My cocktail is part of that search and I have the pleasure of sharing it with you.”
