    Spectacular! seems highly creative. I do have a question…on the Rosita recipe why does he selected Don Julio Repo? Meaning, I would like to know what kind of hints and flavors he found on it to choose it as the more appropriate one.

    On the other hand.. where does he work I would love to try some of his magic?

    Not sure why he went for the reposado bottling, but Don Julio was one of the fine products he had to choose from in this Diageo competition. Jimmy works at Zuma in Dubai
