Recipe by Larry Guevara (recreated by DrinkManila for the video recipe)

  • Mixologist at Liquid Concept
  • Founder of Beverage and Bar Innovations Consultant at Gilario Guevara Bartending Training Services

This recipe is Larry’s entry for the La Maison Cointreau 2016 competition under the theme “The Muse”. Prior to mixology, his dream of becoming a chef took a 360 degrees turn after watching a French flair bartender named Nicolas Saint-Jean who won a flair bartending competition in Scarlett’s (Dubai) in 2001. NSJ (as he was fondly called) became a huge influence in Larry’s bartending career.

“He inspired me to be creative, to keep pushing the envelope, and to stand for who I am,” says Larry. “It is for this very reason that the “Aam-mazing Monsieur” cocktail was created. I wanted to incorporate my Filipino culture in the drinks that I create by using one of the Filipino staples–rice. It is also part of my advocacy to elevate the Filipino Bartending craft and to be able to put back in the map what the legendary Filipino bartenders like Ray Buhen and Mariano Licudine did for the growth of the cocktail culture back in the 1930’s.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think about
    if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its
    field. Awesome blog!
