“MiAmor is my Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition 2016 Baltic finalist. The inspiration for this cocktail was the love, like the name already refers.

“Love is the most powerful feeling in the world. There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

“The first sip of the cocktail is pink like the first time you saw your beloved one with air full of strawberry and raspberry aromas. Berries are followed by the apricots that give strong posture and help you to get to know each other. Smokiness and floral touch that comes from muscovado sugar helps you to fly and do everything for beloved one.

“And then comes passion… passion that cannot be tamed like Bacardi, that could not be tamed by floods, earthquakes, fires! Passion for each other! Try and feel the love!” Angelika Larkina
