Comment:

"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 Campari, honey syrup and lemon - easy and super-tasty!"

We say: Zesty lemon, Campari and tangy IPA makes for a zippy, refreshing drink. A characterful IPA and nailing exactly the right amount of amount of honey are key to this drinks success - we preferred two (just on the heaped side of flat) spoons of runny honey stirred into the drink before shaking.
