Cocktail: Family You Choose | Bartender: Tyler Edward Newsome

A cocktail dedicated to my industry family, inspired by the life of Don Facundo Bacardi. Wherever we go, wherever we work, we connect with those around us and often build a family of our own. Bittersweet, vibrant, and aromatic there’s never a bad time to enjoy the Family you choose!
