Important question for the cocktail lovers in the group: Are you an adventurous drinker or do you prefer to stick to the classics?

Personally, I like it all. Although I haven't shared a lot about my own mixology background, I spent years working behind a bar and have spent even more years studying and learning about cocktails, so whether it's a classic cocktail or a concoction made with ingredients I could never fathom being mixed together in the same glass, I have a deep appreciation for a well-crafted drink. But what I choose to drink depends on my mood, so I like to have quick and easy recipes with familiar flavors in my repetoire as much as I do ones that are more unusual and that make me think.

The Venceremos (Spanish for “We Will Overcome”) falls into that latter category. Created by @ggnchan and photographed beautifully by @alan_home_bartender_, Chan brings together familiar flavors in a deliciously unfamiliar way. And this concoction is so good that it won Chan the 2016 Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition -- think of it as a Piña Colada with a very unique twist!
