“I would like to showcase my Latin American culture through the tropical flavors of the Caribbean in my cocktail with the pineapple, spices like cinnamon, star anise, cloves, and blue curacao,” Marco shared. “The Dubliner, with its honey notes and sweet aromas of soft brown sugar shines through the Caribbean flavors. My cocktail is an invitation to avoid the cold winter in Chicago and take a journey following the rainbow to the Caribbean this Saint Patrick’s Day. If you are in Chicago someday, stop by my bar at Wynwood’s Kitchen and Spirits, I would love to make you a drink inspired in tropical flavors.”
