Ronnaporn's inspiration: "Pink Me Up was born out of the lack of 'pick me up' cocktails in the rum category; unlike vodka's Bloody Mary, or gin's Corpse Reviver No.2 nothing stood out for rum. By combining BACARDÍ Cart Blanca rum, fresh tomato and Thai sweet basil, I wanted to create a surprisingly refreshing and balanced cocktail that would cheer up anyone's day."
