Antonio Pepe's Ron Passion8
Did you know that 24 February is World Bartender Day? A day that celebrates the craft of bartending, the bartenders themselves and the passion they have for one of the world’s oldest professions.
As you know, we have some incredible bartenders at P&O, and an internationally recognised winner in our midst. In 2020, P&O Cruises bartender, Antonio Pepe was crowned one of the world’s top cocktail makers after being awarded a silver medal in the 2020 Bacardi Legacy Cruise finals for his ‘Ron Passion8’ creation.
Antonio outshone thousands of other bartenders around the globe to reach the final, which saw three bartenders create their special version of a rum-based cocktail.
This is the second consecutive year that a P&O bartender has made it through to the final stages of this international competition. Has anyone tried Antonia Pepe's Ron Passion8? If you haven’t, put it at the top of your list when you next cruise and you might even be lucky enough to have Antonio make it for you personally :)
