Adapted from a recipe created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Grace Tsai at Bar 21, Tainan, Taiwan.
Inspiration: “Inspired by the history of Bacardí family and production process of Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum, ‘Apóstol’ mixes this rum with dark chocolate and cinnamon. The spirit, aged in a dark, damp barrel for more than eight years, symbolizes the painstaking process of achieving success. The burning of the cinnamon powder symbolizes war and suffering, while the bitter-sweetness of the dark chocolate symbolizes hard work and the eventual sweetness of success.
“As a follower of Don Facundo Bacardí Massó, the meaning behind my Legacy cocktail is not only my own experience as a bartender, but also the ‘untameable’ spirit of Bacardí.”
