Carmelina

Carmelina cocktail with light rum, coconut liqueur, nigori sake, lime juice, and salt

The Carmelina is a wonderfully unusual cocktail that blends light rum (specifically, Bacardi Carta Blanca) with cloudy nigori sake and coconut liqueur. It’s a refreshing Daiquiri riff, with a gentle sweetness and satisfying texture. It’s beautiful, too – the unfiltered rice in the sake gives the drink a glowing luminescence, like a glass of liquid moonlight.

The Carmelina was created for the Bacardi Legacy Competition by New Zealand bartender Ollie Mason, who named it for a Cuban town to which Japanese sugar-cane workers emigrated in the early 1900s.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
