Hazardous ingredients

Giffard Orgeat Syrup is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

There's a load of orgeat (almond syrup) in this Daiquiri-style cocktail, but it's only just on the sweet side of balanced with that almond richness contributing to its tropical character.

History:

Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Maurizio la Spina at Bartender's Italia, Naples, Italy.

Everybody knows the significance of Cuba to the history of the cocktails, but not everybody knows the important role it played in the history of 'tropical' cocktails. My cocktail is like every tropical drink: a vacation in a glass. It is an elixir with the power to bring you to another place and another time - maybe Cuba during prohibition, when cocktails were made with simple ingredients to transport people to a tropical world, far from everyday life.

Maurizio la Spina, 2017
