Pedrino Summer – Cocktail of the Week

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Pedrino Alcoholic Tonic Water

It’s Pedro Calling…  

Our cocktail of the week is more of a mixed affair, or rather more about the mixer within. There’s no particular rum leading the way in the serve, in fact the coming weeks mark the beginning of an experiment to find the very best rum of the many that work well. It’s simple, tasty and well within the reach of all and it features Pedrino Alcoholic Tonic.

World Class UK Semi Finals 2015

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Diageo Reserve World Class

Latecomer…  

I'm going to freely admit I've arrived quite late to the World Class party and I’m feeling a little like I’m playing catch-up right now. But it’s a difficult phenomenon to ignore, as over the last few years Diageo's World Class Bartender Competition has proved itself to be the ultimate prize in terms of scope, scale and desirability.

Le Latin – Cocktail of the Week

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Le Latin - by Frank Dedieu, FRANCE

Latin Inspiration…  

Our Cocktail of the Week this time is something of a celebration this time, because a few days ago, Franck Dedieu won the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition with a super simple serve that has sufficient ‘twist’ to make me want to feature it here.
