Nicholas Baldassarre, Bar Manager at Toronto’s Bar Buca, arrived at the Barbabuca cocktail somewhat accidentally. He found himself with an abundance of product – beets, apricot purée, raspberries – and started experimenting. The result is a vegetable cocktail that would suit anyone with a taste for a Caesar or Bloody Mary.
