As the 2019 global finals approach, which will come to an exciting close on 23 January 2020 at the beautiful home of Patrón Tequila, Jason explores four areas around his Path to Perfection and how he has prepared.

Winning cocktail: Paraluman
45ml Patrón Silver
15ml Dry vermouth
15ml Sampaguita cordial (local Jasmin)
10ml Lychee juice
3 dashes Grapefruit bitters
Top up with tonic water
Method: Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir to allow for correct dilution. Pour into a highball glass. Top with tonic water. Add garnish.
Inspiration: This cocktail was inspired by our national flower sampaguita (local Jasmin) alongside other local ingredients. It's purity and beauty very much resembles a filipina woman. The strength and humility of a filipina especially those who work hard to give their family a better life. They are the real beauty queen (paraluman). The clearness and elegance with the strong flavor of floral and fruits symbolizes a strong independent filipina woman. A woman just like my mom.
