“My first thought when asked to create a Legacy cocktail was to look for extraordinary ingredients and do something difficult and complex. Then I realized that all the great cocktails that have inspired me were all about simplicity and balance. It became clear to me that ‘simple’ was the challenge!
“I decided to choose one fruit, one herb, one nut and create a relationship good enough to be ‘engaged’ with a legacy rum and stand the test of time.”
