How to make Barracuda cocktail

Like the fierce fish it’s named after, this cocktail has a deceptively sharp bite. Unlike most other fruity rum cocktails, this one has a bubbly wine topper that cuts back the sweetness and gives it a more complex flavor. The taste is a hybrid between a classic Mimosa and a light Rum Punch, making it both a classy drink and a crowd-pleaser on a hot day. That’s why I am sharing How to make Barracuda cocktail recipe today.

We can only assume the cocktail was named after the voracious ocean predator and as been far back as in the 1970s

The Barracuda is one of the latest cocktails to be added to the International Bar Tenders Association official listings, appearing alongside other New Era Drinks. You can add a spoonful of pineapple pulp if you want a sweeter drink, or go a little heavier on the Prosecco if you’re a Mimosa fan. The official recipe doesn’t call for grenadine, but a splash will give the cocktail a nice color and a hint of cherry flavor. Try out our Barracuda cocktail recipe today.
