Un Clasico

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.
