This cocktail is just a hunk, a hunk of burning love! Calcutta Cricket Club's bartender, Eric Auclair, wanted to create a cocktail that showed the LGBTQ+ community's journey to winning their rights. He created this harmonious drink using soft and rough ingredients such as cinnamon, rose water, mango and rum and turmeric.
