Defending champion Rafael Nadal made a sponsor appearance for Bacardi Limited yesterday in New York City. The event was held at the FoodParc Outdoor Plaza at the Eventi Hotel.

As part of being the campaign’s ambassador, Nadal will serve as an aspirational role model for legal drinking age consumers promoting the important message that responsible drinking includes having a plan, choosing quality over quantity, looking out for friends and ensuring everyone arrives home safely.

The event also debuted a new “Nadal drink” called “Rafa Berry Smash”. Ingredients below:

Rafa Berry Smash
6 fresh strawberries
4 fresh raspberries
4 fresh blueberries
10ml of fresh lemon juice
1 heaped spoon of caster sugar
50ml of cranberry juice
50ml of pomegranate juice
Ice cubes and crushed ice

With Rafa be drinking this on the changeovers?

Nadal, who completed his career Slam in New York last year defeating Novak Djokovic, will be the No. 2 seed when the draw is released tomorrow. The tournament begins on Monday.

Tonight Nadal will make his first appearance on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman.

Via Facebook, Rafa posted, “I am on my way to the Letterman show, let’s see how it goes…. Not sure my English is the best but will give my best try. Hope he’ll be nice to me! Tomorrow i’ll be at Macy’s Herald Square tomorrow at 5:00pm as I unveil the new Fall @Armani Jeans ad campaign.”
