Bermuda Triangle Cocktail

A very warm and lazy day by the pool at the Deauville Hotel transitioned into a night under the stars with another lively cocktail competition hosted by Barritt’s Ginger Beer, Fee Brothers and the Rum Renaissance team.  The crowd of cocktail aficionados, rum experts, journalists and a few lucky hotel guests were treated to a variety of creative drinks made by some of the industry’s top mixologists.

The rules to the competition were simple – create an original drink using rum, Barritts Ginger Beer and anything from the Fee Brothers line of bitters and syrups.  Eight local and national mixologists gave it their best, but in the end, Freddy Diaz from AlambiQ in Miami won the grand prize.
