WILL IT COUPE STACK?
We've all seen the "Will it blend?" series of YouTube videos so we thought we'd introduce a similar concept to our cocktails, asking the question, "Will it Coupe Stack?"
The coupe stack is a tower of six glasses, perfectly designed to stack on top of one another to allow the drink of choice (usually Champagne) to elegantly spill over the rims and fill up each glass with a theatrical waterfall effect.
But, is it just a party-trick limited to Champagne?
Will it Coupe Stack? The Bacardi Old Cuban
The cocktail is made with Bacardi Gold rum, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, Champagne, and garnished with fresh mint. With six glasses to fill, the original recipe has been modified to prepare six cocktails at once.
INGREDIENTS (makes six)
- 300ml Bacardi Gold Rum
- 120ml Fresh Lime Juice
- 180ml Simple Sugar Syrup
- 6 dashes Angostura bitters
- 360ml Dry Champagne or Sparkling White Wine, Chilled
- Pack of Fresh Mint
In a large cocktail shaker, muddle mint and sugar, add ice, and shake half of the lime, simple syrup, and rum.
Pour the mixture into a pitcher, and repeat.
Top up with Champagne or Sparkling Wine and stir.
Stack up your coupe stack, and carefully pour the cocktail from your pitcher into the top glass of the stack. Keep pouring until all of the glasses are filled.
Garnish each glass with a few sprigs of mint, and enjoy!
There is an brilliant moment of suspense as the first glass starts to fill up, as the cocktail trickles over the side to fill up the next glass...
A great way to kick off a dinner or drinks party with class and flair.
So will the Bacardi Old Cuban Coupe Stack?
Damn right it will coupe stack!
