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.
⅖ part sugar syrup
1 ½ parts BACARDÍ Gold rum
½ part Xante Pear & Cognac Liqueur
½ part Licor 43 (Cuarenta y Tres)
1 part red wine
1 wheel 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.
