There’s an Argentinean superstition that says you shouldn’t have red wine and watermelon together. BACARDÍ mixologist David Cordoba decided to try his luck and went on to create the award-winning Clasico.
37.5 ml BACARDÍ Carta Oro Rum
12.5 ml Xante Pear & Cognac Liqueur
12.5 ml Licor 43 (Cuarenta y Tres)
25 ml red wine
10 ml sugar syrup
1 wheel of watermelon
Cut the watermelon into cubes, place them into a cocktail shaker and crush them lightly (using a muddler or bar spoon). Add the rest of the ingredients with some ice cubes and give it a good, hard shake. Fine strain the mixture into a glass full of ice cubes.
