"My inspiration is the famous Bacardí poster from the early 1940s, depicting a young elegant Rumba dancer in her rich red flamenco-style dress; this poster for me is a snap shot of a time in Cuba, a time of fun, passion with a hint of romance. My cocktail is not only a symbol of this time, but also a symbol of the Irish Bartending community spirit. Rumbera is a delicate and floral cocktail, perfected with the support of friends and family; inspired by the Bacardi family members with their passion for the Cuban lifestyle, music and community."
We say: This is a crowd pleasing cocktail - fruity and just a tad on the sweet side, with pomegranate and rich almond biscotti-like flavours dominating.
