Adapted from a recipe created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Kaitlin Wilkes at Corner Club, Stockholm, Sweden.

Inspiration: ““Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a ride!”- Hunter S Thompson

“I named my drink Gonzo as a tribute to Hunter S. Thompson – author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Rum Diaries. His legacy was ‘gonzo’ journalism – a style of journalism where the writer injects themselves into the narrative. Thompson wrote The Rum Diaries whilst in his early 20s about his time in Puerto Rico writing for a newspaper and soaked in rum – quite possibly Bacardí rum as they built their flagship distillery the ‘Cathedral of Rum’ there around the same time.

“My dream is to leave behind a great cocktail, something that can become a part of someone else's journey - there is really no opportunity better than this one.”
