Grapefruit zest twist
How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass (preferably block ice). TOP up with beer.
|1 2/3 fl oz||Bacardi Carta Blanca light rum|
|1/3 fl oz||Italian red bitter liqueur|
|1/2 fl oz||Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)|
|1/2 fl oz||Honey syrup (3 honey to 1 water)|
|1 fl oz||India pale ale (IPA) beer|
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.
Originally made with Bacardi Carta Blanca, this was the Belarus Bacardí Legacy 2016 winning cocktail and was created by Lizaveta Molyavka at News Café in Minsk.
Lizaveta says, "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!"
