I was asked by the wonderful people at Cocktail Gastronomy to create a logo for Andrew Bennett’s Bacardi Legacy cocktail entry for 2015 – The Seventh Art.
I used elements of gold, watercolour washes and classic type face, referencing art nouveau and vintage feels. The bacardi bat is added as final touch.
“The drink is inspired by my love of cinema and how a great movie experience can be a work of art. The drink is built on the DNA of a sour, but aims to fast-track the experience of fat-washing. Here the umami flavours of butter and salt are leached from the popcorn instantaneously and experienced in cocktail form.” Andrew Bennett
50 ml (1.7 oz) Bacardi Superior rum
10 ml (.33 oz) yellow Chartreuse
20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice
15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup (1:1)
1 lemon twist, as garnish
Lightly muddle the popcorn in the bottom of a shaker. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake hard and double-strain into a chilled coupe. Add the garnish.
