Here’s a glimpse of Luis Franco, Panama’s World Class finalist, in Rio this year.  Luis was wildly creative when he made drinks for Ueno-San and me, using balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a Jon Julio-based cocktail called Napolitan Dream.  And here are a couple more recipes that Luis used during the Classic-Chic round.
