And the Winner Is….

The winner of the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition is Elizaveta Evdokimova from Moscow, Russia!

The Knight Cup

2 parts Bacardi Superior Rum

1 part Cynar

1/2 part grenadine

1/4 part sugar syrup

Place all ingredients into a pre-chilled or frozen mixing glass, add ice and stir well. Then pour into a tumbler/old fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with pomegranate leather.

Congratulations to Elizaveta!

And we were rooting for ‘our guy’ Nick Nistico from Regents Bar in Miami, representing the United States with his cocktail,

The Garden Gimlet

1 2/3 parts Bacardi Superior Rum

1 1/2 parts lemon syrup

1 tsp caraway seed

1 tbsp red bell pepper puree

1 handful fresh arugula

Pinch Maldon sea salt

Place all the ingredients into a shaker, add ice and shake vigorously. Then double strain into a pre-chilled or frozen cocktail glass. Garnish with a touch of Maldon sea salt on a slice of bell pepper.

We were proud Nick made it into the finals!
