Nicole’s inspiration: “It inspires me that BACARDÍ rum moves people to celebrate their individuality and freedom of spirit through the rhythm of music and dance. Ritmo Tropical is something that comes from within me; it is the spirit of the Caribbean that speaks through a certain tropical rhythm that can fill your heart with happiness and make you proud to be alive. The sound of rum nourishes the soul and makes the feet move.
The mix of ingredients in my cocktail may seem unusual for a tropical cocktail, but each one of them represents an important part of Caribbean cocktail history – I hope that one day Ritmo Tropical will stand beside timeless BACARDÍ classics like the Mojito.”
