Our friends over at Cocktails and Shots know exactly how to celebrate National Rum Month. Boasting a wide array of tasty libations, “La Mission” from Larry Guevara rises to the top as one of our favorites.
“La Mision” Cocktail is Larry Guevara‘s official drink entry at the Bacardi Legacy Philippines 2017 Cocktail Competition. Inspired by the Life of Don Facundo Bacardi Masso and the “Brown Cantineros” (Filipino Bartenders of yesteryears), “La Mission” Cocktail embodies the Legacy of these bold and brave people who made a mark in the world of bartending. It combines layers of flavor that speak of the challenges that the Bacardi family went through to reach and fulfill their own Legacy which I would like to represent through “La Mision Cocktail.”
For the La Mission cocktail, we use Bacardi 8 rum, fresh ruby grapefruit juice, unsweetened pineapple juice, martini bianco, fresh lemon juice and black peppercorn syrup. First, fill a shaker with ice and add all the ingredients. Shake everything well and double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish the La Mission cocktail with a fresh grapefruit peel.
