Valor Red

If Team Mystic is the brains of Pokémon GO, Team Valor is the brawn. Led by Candela, the members of Team Valor focus on their Pokémons’ pure, physical strength. Their mascot is Moltres, the legendary bird of fire, so we conjured up a smoldering red cocktail made with Campari, ginger liqueur, white rum and Angostura bitters, and lit it on fire. (Be very careful when lighting this drink, and please, for the love of Charmander, extinguish the flame before you drink it.) The Valor Red is not so much a cocktail as a torch lighting the path to victory.
