This International Women’s Day, take a shot at the patriarchy by celebrating with the winning recipe of the annual BACARDÍ U.S. Legacy Cocktail Competition, created by Melina Meza of Los Angeles. Vying for the title of creating the next timeless classic rum cocktail, Melina’s “Nueva Sol” cocktail, was recently announced as the West Coast winner of the competition held in Puerto Rico.
