Over the summer, from mid-June to July 13, LEBLON held a contest in which mixologists and consumers were invited to post their unique recipe for the best batida on Leblon’s Facebook page. Guest judges were Critic Gael Greene, PDT’s Jim Meehan, and Cocktail Consultant, Aisha Sharpe.
The time has come, and on July 19th, a winner was announced! Cheers!
Congratulations to Justin Noel from New York City for his winning recipe ‘Vitamina De Abacate.’
