The Venceremos cocktail (Spanish for "we shall overcome") was bartender Gn Chan's winning recipe at the 2016 Bacardi Legacy cocktail competition. It's a variation on the Piña Colada, but with a Taiwanese twist: cucumber and sesame oil. The Venceremos is refreshing, and features an artful use of vegetal and savory notes to round out what is traditionally a sweet and fruity drink.

Ingredients

1.5 oz Bacardí Carta Blanca rum
0.5 oz coconut liqueur
0.8 oz pineapple juice
0.5 oz coconut juice
0.15 oz fresh lime juice
1 dash sesame oil
Pineapple leaf for garnish

  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
