Subtle blackcurrant and anise notes flavour this aged rum maple daiquiri.
Adapted from a recipe created in 2019 by George Hunter, this is the cocktail with which he won the South African final of Bacardi's Legacy bartender's competition, taking him and his cocktail through to the global final.
George created his recipe in Johannesburg, South Africa where Bacardi Ocho is 43% alc./vol. so the above recipe is reformatted for the 40% alc./vol. Bacardi Ocho available in Europe. George's original recipe:
60ml Bacardi Ocho
30ml Fresh lime
15ml Maple syrup
10ml Crème de cassis
George told us, "Cazador is my surname in Spanish (Hunter). The cocktail has been created to represent triumph and lessons learnt. Cazador is a symbol to remind people to never give up, to push through the hard times. I started my career as a bar back on minimum wage, I worked hard every single day to learn more and grow as a bartender. The first time I entered Bacardi Legacy, I didn't even make it out the first round. Six years later  I entered again & won the national event in South Africa and get to represent my country on the global stage."
