Drink this

IN THE dim and distant past, before Coca Cola ruled the world, cool cats in Havana used to take their rum mixed with nothing more exotic than a little lime and soda. And so we fast-forward to 1999 and the latest drink-that-should-be-mixed-in-front-of-you-but-in-fact-comes- in-a-bottle from Bacardi. It's called Rigo, and it goes down a treat. Drink it chilled, on a balcony, and think about the great bearded revolutionary and five year plans. Salud!

Bacardi Rigo is available nationwide from June.
