Difford's Guide remains free-to-use thanks to the support of the brands in red above.
A pleasing and interesting combination of flavours, but slightly on the sweet side and for some drinkers (us) lacks oomph.
Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Kentaro Satoh at Bar Day Cocktail, Yokohama, Japan.
Inspiration: “The Cuban port city Mariel is gaining attention globally for its growing international trade. This has only increased in the light of the improving diplomatic relations with America; Mariel is now going to be Cuba’s window to the rest of the world. More than 200 years ago, Japan also went through a similar transformation. In 1859, Yokohama was the first port city to start trading with other countries. My legacy cocktail ‘Mariel,’ made with Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum, aims to bridge these two cultures and create a new port city cocktail.”
