Bacardí Legacy Cocktail Competition 2014 Nordic results and finalists' recipes part 2

Alex Ruas' Guantanamera
What a night! This year's Nordic finals of Bacardí Legacy Cocktail Competition definitely was the most action packed so far. You could tell that some of the bartenders were somewhat nervous, but all of them - with one unfortunate exception - still managed to give engaging presentations and make solid drinks. As previously mentioned, three bartenders from each country - Sweden, Denmark and Norway - competed against each other for a spot in the global finals in Moscow in May. And, about 11 hours ago, the celebrity jury - Boudy Ghostine (Miss Voon, last year's Nordic finalist in the global finals who managed to place himself first runner-up), Chris Moore (The Savoy), David Cordoba (Bacardí global brand ambassador), Mario Kappes (Le Lion) and Enrique Comas (fifth generation Bacardí family) - announced the winners:
