In advance of the 78th annual Golden Globes coming up on Sunday, February 28th, BACARDÍ is pleased to share two cocktail recipes inspired by a few of the nominees taking the virtual stage at one of the biggest nights in film and television.
If you binge-watched “Emily in Paris,” then you’ll definitely enjoy the BACARDÍ Cuatro Smash, made with BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro Rum and St-Germain® Elderflower Liqueur. This drink will make you feel like you’re sitting tableside at a Parisian café with your friends, even when you’re watching the awards from the comfort of your couch.
For those that enjoyed the comedy Palm Springs, opt for the BACARDÍ Coco Conga – which is the perfect libation to sip on as you imagine yourself lounging on the beach, but probably not reliving the same day over again like Andy Samberg. This cocktail is made with a base of BACARDÍ Superior Rum – like all good Mojitos – and a splash of BACARDÍ Coconut Flavored Rum for a kick of Caribbean flavor.
BACARDÍ Coco Conga
- 2 oz. BACARDĺ Superior Rum
- 1 oz. lime juice

Method: Add the BACARDĺ Superior Rum, lime juice sugar, and mint to a highball glass. Press mint with a bar spook to release oil. Add crushed ice, almost to the top, and churn. Top with Club Soda and crown with a splash of BACARDĺ Coconut Flavored Rum. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge.
BACARDÍ Cuatro Smash
