Bacardi Cocktail

The Bacardi cocktail is an IBA Official Cocktail made primarily with Bacardi Superior. It is served as a "pre-dinner" cocktail.


The Bacardi Cocktail was originally the same as the Daiquiri, containing rum, lime juice, and sugar; The Grenadine version of the Bacardi Cocktail originated in the US, while the original non-red Bacardi company recipe originated from Cuba.

On April 28, 1936 the New York Supreme Court ruled that the drink must contain Bacardi rum in order to be called a Bacardi cocktail.[1]
