It’s not summertime until you’ve had your first mojito
It’s summertime and we still need a summer smash hit to dance to. Luckily everyone’s favorite rum brand, BACARDÍ’s, has recently unveiled their latest campaign titled “Conga Feat. You.” This new song takes the classic Latin dance song and reimagines it with a fresh take. The song features lead vocals from Leslie Grace, verses from Meek Mill, and is produced by Grammy Award-Winning producer, Boi-1da. You can check out the song below.
The launch of the “Conga Feat. You” campaign comes in parallel with World Cocktail Day which was on May 13th. And with that, BACARDÍ is helping you make the perfect drink to get your summer started right. BACARDÍ has created two new drink recipes that feature some of the classic BACARDÍ flavors and rums.
