Pura Pasion, a Hans Just brand, sponsors the welcome drink for the award event. Legend has it that when the Romans arrived in Spain they outlawed the local golden elixir – Liqueur Mirabilis. The locals, however, continued to make it in secret based on handed-down family recipes. Licor 43 is based on one of these secret family recipes and flavoured with 43 herbs (hence the name). The sweet vanilla and citrus flavour makes it a very versatile drink and an excellent mixer. Try it in your coffee, on the rocks or mixed with ginger ale and lime.
