Yesterday it was time to reveal the winner of this year’s Bacardí Legacy Global Cocktail Competition, with Boudy Ghostine, bar manager at Miss Voon here in Stockholm, representing Sweden. 19 bartenders from all over the world have been in Miami during a few days for education and to win one of eight spots in last evening’s grand finale in Puerto Rico, and I was very happy to hear that Boudy was one of them.

Apparently his efforts weren’t enough, though, because he ended up in second place. This year’s winner is Elizaveta Evdokimova from Delicatessen in Moscow – congratulations!
Here’s the winning cocktail recipe:
The Knight Cup
45 ml BACARDÍ Superior rum
20 ml Cynar
10 ml pomegranate liqueur
5 ml sugar syrup
Place all ingredients into a pre-chilled or frozen mixing glass, add ice and stir well. Then pour into an Old Fashioned glass filled with ice and garnish with pomegranate leather.
