San Diego Lifeguard Charles O. Ware invented this drink while on vacation in Greece with his wife, Melissa, and baby, Tatum in the spring of 2005. The drink was inspired by San Diego Lifeguard Seargant and rum afficianado Darell Esparza's 3-legged cat, Akbar (arabic for "great one").

It's officially called the "International" Akbar only because Cuban rum is not legally available in the U.S. This drink has become the official summer drink for all lifeguards and their friends and family here in San Diego.

In fact, the Trader Joe's in Pacific Beach is often sold out of their dark Cruzan Rum (cheap, but tasty) and San Pellegrino sodas, due to ones ability to purchase enough ingredients for 12 Akbars with only $12.00 in your pocket. Delicious!!!


Squeeze lime wedge and drop into bottom of glass. Fill highball glass with ice. Add shot of dark rum. Fill to rim with San Pellegrino Aranciata, stir and serve.
