The Bacardi family took an active part in the Cuban struggle for independence against Spain. They gained such great respect in the cocktail world that a special Bacardi cocktail appeared. The cocktail was even approved by law; in 1936, the New York Supreme Court ruled: the Bacardi cocktail must have Bacardi rum.

Step 1: You will need (for one portion):
— light rum — 40 ml / 1.3 oz
— grenadine syrup — 10 ml / 0.3 oz
— half of a lime
— ice cubes
— crushed ice

Necessary utensils:
— martini glass
— shaker
— jigger
— ice tongs
— ice scoop
— ice bucket
— squeezer

Step 2: Fill the Martini glass with crushed ice to cool it.

Step 3: Fill the shaker with ice cubes.

Step 4: Measure 40 ml / 1.3 oz of light rum with the jigger and pour it into the shaker.

Step 5: Pour 2 teaspoons of grenadine syrup into the shaker.

Step 6: Put half of a lime into the squeezer and press to release juice into the shaker.

Step 7: Lock the shaker and shake it well, holding it with both hands by the bottom and by the cap. You should hold very tight or the shaker may open!

Step 8: Shake until the shaker has beads of sweat on the outside.

Step 9: Pour the mix from the shaker into the glass.

Step 10: Garnish with a lime slice. The Bacardi cocktail is complete!
