This is a great classic cocktail that is an excellent example of good marketing. Fun fact: In 1936, the New York Supreme Court ruled that an authentic Bacardi Cocktail had to be made with Bacardi Rum.

Sour mix is often used in bars instead of the lemon or lime juice, but fresh juice always makes a better drink. If you want to go with sour mix, you can easily make your own, though it is not necessary here because the grenadine adds a perfect amount of sweetness.
