We can identify creative minds when we see one. One such from the Shaquille O’Neal family would be Myles, who has always chosen a stand-alone path. While most of O’Neal’s kids wanted to make a mark in basketball, the 26-year-old aspired to become a disc jockey. His quick fame in the music industry got him a lot of partnerships and sponsors over the years. And his biggest achievement would be joining hands with the famous spirits company Bacardi.

The $3.1 billion brand has handpicked its partners pretty extensively. It was quite a surprise for many and Myles himself when Bacardi chose the young DJ for a collaboration. Anyhow, his latest Instagram update reveals why the multi-billion company wanted him in their marketing campaign. How would it taste if there was a punch of coffee in your drink?

That might be an odd combo, but never a bad one. Myles showed how to add some essence of coffee in your Bacardi shot, but hold on, there is an intriguing twist. This cannot be any coffee powder! Myles specifically displayed that it must be Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler‘s famous coffee brand, the ‘BIGFACE’.

Well, this drink ‘BIGFACE Café con Ocho’, which was initially started by Butler himself, contains 2 oz of Bacardi rum, 1 oz of his BIGFACE Coffee La Paz Espresso, and a punch of caramel syrup to it. Earlier in January, Butler shared the recipe through his brand’s Instagram handle. Now, Myles O’Neal has recreated it once again for his audience.

He shared in the comments, “Late nights in the studio aren’t a problem when @bigfacebrand x @bacardi has your back.” He added a description of the drink, “The BIGFACE Café con Ocho is a twist on the classic espresso martini, made with the help of (Jimmy Butler) and perfect to sip at any time.”

All you have to do is just chug 12 cups of coffee a day like Jimmy Butler. That is not easy indeed, but the 34-year-old’s unbeaten love for coffee is what helped him choose a second career. He revealed in an interview that one thing he loves more than coffee is the opportunity that it creates to make a conversation. Also, that was the motivating factor for him to start a coffee brand. 

He revealed that he has been practicing coffee making and latte art, which will help him hugely after retirement. If you ever want to get in touch with Butler after he leaves the Miami Heat, just check out the famous coffee shops across the country.
