After winning Lebanon’s best mixologist title back in July, Sapa Beirut‘s Mike Kassabian flew to Mexico to represent Lebanon in the global finales and won the FIRST Prize in Cocktails at Home Challenge! This is a first for Lebanon and an awesome achievement for Mike!

I still didn’t get the chance to taste his signature Tanqueray No. Ten-based cocktail “Fountain of Life”. Here’s how it’s prepared:

4 basil leaves
1 drop of Aloe vera oil
50 ml Tanqueray N10
20 ml Lemon juice
20 ml Simple syrup
10 ml aged Campari ( chamomile tea pre-washed barrel )
