Comment:

A dry aperitivo style cocktail in which the aged rum shines through with Cynar adding bittersweet complexity.

Origin:

Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Matthew Boyle at Field Guide & The Clever Barkeep Ltd, Halifax, Canada

Inspiration: “This cocktail is an homage to the late Leonard Cohen, who passed away in Canada in 2016. His hit ‘First We Take Manhattan’ inspired me as this cocktail is a play on the ‘Manhattan’ & ‘El Presidente.’

“In the second stanza of the song, Cohen sings ‘and then we take Berlin!’ This cocktail showcases Cohen, Canada and the iconic Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum in its purest form; stirred and spirit forward.”
