Salute to Summer’s Best 60 Second Cocktail

Bacardi USA has partnered with the USO for the Salute to Summer’s Best 60 Second Cocktail. This is a program that allows you to help increase a donation from Bacardi USA to the USO. Here's more information about the program:

The “60 Second Cocktail” recipes are simple yet creative, and pair fresh, natural ingredients with flavorful BACARDI products. Recipes include a GREY GOOSE Fresh Berry Lemonade, a BACARDI Limon Iced Tea, a DEWAR’S Callaway Cocktail, and more—all of which can be made in under 60 seconds with easy to find ingredients. Besh’s recipes use BACARDI products on the grill to create meals that can be made in the blink of an eye and are sure to impress friends and family. The “60 Second Cocktails” guide features Besh’s healthy, original grilling recipes, easily prepared in under 10 minutes. Recipes such as the Grilled Chicken Breast with Tequila CAZADORES Reposado Lime Glaze or the Grilled Flank Steak with Louisiana Peach and GREY GOOSE Citron Glaze pair perfectly with the featured spirits to draw out natural flavors while adding an extra kick.

BACARDI, USA has committed to donate $75,000 to the USO at the onset of summer, with consumers (21+) able to increase the total donation amount to a maximum of $100,000 through their participation in the program via the “60 Second Cocktails” Facebook fan page.

Serve blended with or over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Here's a recipe that sounds really good to me too:
