Denis showed fabulous bartending skills in Rio this year, and he brought something else to the party that proved him to be a World Class Bartender beyond a shadow of a doubt: A great sense of humor.  Denis always wore a great big smile, and, through his translator, he was very quick with a cheeky line, a quip, or a funny observation.  Here are a couple of his recipes.
