Review:

Zesty lemon, bitter liqueur and tangy IPA makes for a zippy, refreshing drink. A characterful IPA and nailing exactly the right amount of honey are key to this drink's success.

History:

Originally made with Bacardi Carta Blanca, this was the Belarus Bacardí Legacy 2016 winning cocktail and was created by Lizaveta Molyavka at News Café in Minsk.

To create my cocktail, I first asked 'is there anything else' in terms of cocktail ingredients that haven't been used for a Bacardí cocktail, but are related to the Bacardi family? I discovered the wonderful story of Bacardi's own beer 'Hatuey.' In early Twentieth-Century Cuba, Bacardi would take ice from their lakes in North America and give their customers an ice block and six-pack of Hatuey beer, then the best-selling beer in Cuba. My cocktail celebrates this by marrying the first Cuban rum with the citrus, grapefruit peel and bitter notes of the IPA-style beer, balanced with bitter liqueur, honey syrup and lemon - easy and super-tasty!
