The Bacardi

About the Bacardi

This cousin of the Daiquiri is a pre-prohibition cocktail and an IBA Classic. Although the original version of this drink originates from Cuba, the grenadine addition is a United States variation and creates a more sweet flavor. This cocktail is still fairly spirit-forward so sip responsibly and slowly.

Empire Tip: Try an orange peel as a garnish!
