The ” 5 o’clock ritual ” for Bacardi Legacy

23 Oct

Here’s something i created for that giant competition that is Bacardi Legacy. Only eight people in Italy will be considered for the final, so it will be a fierce battle. Unfortunately i haven’t had the chance to see any other recipe, I just hope nobody came up with this yet.


1 oz. Bacardi Superior
1/2 oz. Amaretto Disaronno
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1 passion fruit
5 cardamom pods
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Prep :

Pour the three spirits in a tin kettle, heat them up with the steamer and then light the liquid on fire. Swirl it a little to get the flame going and let it burn for a couple of minutes. To show off a little bit you can pour the flaming liquid from a kettle to another one a la “Jerry Thomas”. Meanwhile, prepare a teapot full of ice with the cardamom pods, passion fruit pulp and Angostura Bitters. When the flaming liquid is ready, pour it all at once in the teapot. I found out that just by letting it sit three minutes in the teapot, the aroma and flavor improve greatly, so , after three minutes (recommended), serve in a Martini cup with a lime wheel.

I got the inspiration for this after seeing my colleague drinking a hot tea in the afternoon, hence the name of the cocktail.. the result should be very similar in taste and aroma to a spiced tea and with most of the alcohol burnt away i would think it could be served even in the morning.. cheers!!!!
