It’s my pleasure to tell you the story of a young man named José Luis, who has won numerous competitions to be named Mexico’s Best Bartender.
But this story is less about bartending, and more about how José Luis overcame adversity to get here.
He was born and raised in one of Mexico City’s most dangerous neighborhoods called Nezahualcóyotl. Against all odds, he got a degree from a top university and went on to teach himself how to bartend (which was not easy to do in Mexico).
Now, he has been to 31 countries and over 50 cities to bartend for people around the world and he’s only getting started! What an incredible guy and he is proof that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. If you ever make it to Mexico City, you have to find him at either Baltra or Limantour –he would be glad to make you a drink!
Thank you Corona for making this video possible.
