Review:

The richness of blackcurrant syrup (25ml crème de cassis works well as a substitute) is balanced by the sourness of the vinegar with the liquorice and salt adding umami notes to the rich rum base.

History:

The German Bacardí Legacy 2017 winning cocktail created by Christoph Henkel at Shepheard Bar in Cologne, Germany.

The idea of a slower pace of life, with more room for real social interaction instead of media networking, was the inspiration behind my new drink. Chapeau is a drink that does justice to any occasion and bring people from all walks of life together.

Simplicity is a feature I highly value in a drink. I was inspired by the essence of a Diaquiri – spirit, tartness, sweetness. I want my creation 'Chapeau' to be a future classic. The heart of my drink is Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum, which provides the full-bodied flavour of 'Chapeau'. The sweet earthy flavour of blackcurrant complements the smoothness of the rum and brings out its berry undertones whilst vinegar makes for a soft tart taste perfectly balancing out the sweetness of the syrup. Finally, grated liquorice and salt adds a unique tang that tingles the tongue, and adds the flamboyance needed to make 'Chapeau' unforgettable!
