We kick off 2019 with our main event: 1921® LEYENDAS MASTER MIXOLOGY at UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya. After a year in the lookout for the top mixologists thru our competitions, México, Argentina, Russia, USA and Italy were the countries participating in a world mixology giants battle:
- Gregorio Zanatta – México
- Bruno Lardelli – Argentina
- Eduardo Alei Zárate – México
- Stanixlav Vezhe – Rusia
- Aarón Meléndrez – Estados Unidos
- Carlos Proverbio – Italia
- Ximena Rubi – México
Carlo Proverbio impressed everyone with his technique and complex flavors from the amazing Italy when preparing a cocktail with a 1921 Tequila Añejo infused herbal tea served in a glass garnished with colorful flowers and covering the drink with a foam made out of a shake made by him. The cocktail had bold character, great aroma, excellent flavor and an incredible performance.
Argentina, represented by Bruno Lardelli couldn’t hold back, he delighted the judges with a cocktail including chocolate essences. By mixing 1oz of 1921® Crema de Tequila and other flavors in a shaker and then serv it in a baseless martini glass inside a globe glass filled with ice and topped with a chocolate mousse and chocolate spheres.
Last but not least, Ximena Rubí made a magnificent presentation of her cocktail; using flamed orange slices and edible flowers to aromatize the glass, figs and nutmeg seeds to garnish and 1921® Crema de Tequila mixed with other liquors.
The contestants tagged us and share with their followers their experience thru social media.
