This story is published in partnership with Diageo Reserve World Class, which supports hundreds of thousands of bartenders through its training and advocacy program. For this World Cocktail Day, on May 13th, World Class surveyed top bartenders around the globe—including World Class Bartender of the Year, Kaitlyn Stewart—on the most popular cocktails being ordered in their bars today; to see the results, click here.
This drink from Kaitlyn Stewart was inspired by sustainability and synergy between bar and kitchen. “We work closely with the kitchen, so if I’m taking mint and only need the leaves, I can give them back the stems and they can use it in a stock. If they’re juicing something and have leftover pulp, I can use that in syrups,” she says.
In this cocktail, pineapple kasu meets pineapple gomme, bitters and rejuiced lime husks, for a refreshing tropical drink served in a recycled pineapple can.
