Salute to Summer’s Best 60 Second Cocktails: Help support our troops!

As seen on the Today Show this morning Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. and the USO are teaming up to help us support and remember our military heroes at home and abroad this summer!

Celebrity chef John Besh and celebrity mixologist Bryan Stowe will give you some great ideas for using tasty BACARDI® rum, flavored rums, GREY GOOSE vodka, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin, DEWAR’S blended Scotch whisky and tequila CAZADORES in your summer drinks and grilling while reducing the stress of long prep times.

You can also download the 60 Second Cocktails recipe book or drag and drop the recipe cards to print them out and get ready for your next backyard BBQ!
