Cocktail star from Mexico City brings spirits to Happy Hour

George’s Level2 has been hosting semi-regular Happy Hour guest mixologist events for sometime now, but on Monday, they’re bringing a big shaker to town.

Jose Luis Leon is a star in the bar scene of Mexico City. For the past five years he has been the manager of Licorería Limantour, a Mexico City bar that has a cocktail program that was recognized as one of the world’s top 50 bars.

His specialty? Leon “fuses historical flavors with new age ingredients and techniques.” - winning combinations that have earned him various cocktail competition wins, and a chance to represent Mexico in 2015 in the Diplomatico World Tournament.

Check out what Leon mixes up when he partners with the Level2 team from 5:30-9:30 p.m. on Monday night.
