I didn't judge the 2019 Bacardí Legacy final and have not subsequently made or sampled this cocktail.
Created by Sanja Cvijetic from Carnival Cruise Line for the 2019 Bacardí Legacy Cocktail Competition, this cocktail won the cruise line category. Sanja submitted the following inspiration when entering the competition.
"Life often can be stressful; at home I would smell fresh lavender to feel calm and relaxed after a long day. When you work on a cruise ship, you probably won't find fresh lavender, but you will find the kind of amazing sunsets you only get to see while you're cruising in the open seas – for me, they have the same effect as lavender. My inspiration was to mix those two together with Bacardí rum that smells like vacation. Introducing the Purple Sunset."
