The Barracuda cocktail is one of the new classic IBA cocktails. The recipe calls for using old rum (i.e. aged in barrels for at least 3 years) and Prosecco (Italian sparkling white wine).

This cocktail would have started to be developed from the end of the 1950s by Benito Cuppari, an Italian bartender who worked on cruise ships. It is in honor of a nightclub of the same name located in Portofino and managed by a friend of his that Cuppari baptized his recipe the "Barracuda".

Barracudas are fruity and refreshing cocktails, Prosecco brings its little Italian touch.
