The Serendipity was created at around midnight or a bit later on the 31st December 1994 for a friend named Jean Louis. He wanted a cocktail that would go well with a Cazadores cigar made by Sancto Spiriti for Romeo y Julieta, a havana cigar to be brief.

It's so fresh and cool in the bar that I'd rather be here than at home!!!

DAVID MALLET COCKTAIL . RENDEZ VOUS OF PASSION PROFFESSIONALS

Perhaps its to do with English speaking, networking and learnin(...)
