BACARDÍ Legacy is a global cocktail competition that challenges bartenders to create an original BACARDÍ Rum Cocktail, which sets itself apart from classic cocktails. The competition begins on a national level and extends worldwide with thousands of entries, with the last eight competing in the global final. For the very first time, Tails have batched two of the winning recipes – the Global Champion cocktail, as well as the UK Winner’s rum cocktail. The collaboration will allow the top bartender’s cocktails to be available to a broader audience with real speed that doesn’t compromise the cocktail’s quality.
The ‘Pink Me Up’ cocktail has been created by the BACARDÍ Legacy Global Champion 2019, Ronnaporn Kanivichaporn, from Bangkok, Thailand, and the UK’s 2019 winning cocktail, ‘Rum Reverie’ created by Bristol based Chelsie Bailey. Both will be exclusively served at The Rum Kitchen in Soho during London Cocktail Week from October 4th – October 14th.
Ronnaporn is co-owner at Backstage Cocktail Bar in Thailand and created the ‘Pink Me Up’ with a delicate mix of Bacardi Carta Blanca, fresh tomato, basil, orgeat syrup, lemon and olive brine. Chelsie, the UK winner, is a bartender at Filthy XIII in Bristol and created ‘Rum Reverie’ with Bacardi Reserva Ocho rum, cream sherry, apricot liqueur, lemon and orange zest.
