Then, on May 12, Rosario represented Nevada in the USBG’s national championship at the Drake Hotel in San Francisco- and won! 

His signature fave concoction is a blend of Sauza Tres Generaciones Plata, fresh lime juice, agave nectar, cucumber, optional dill and an optional half-ounce of vodka. 

As the national winner, Rosario will go on to represent the United States at the International Bartenders Association (IBA)’s prestigious annual World Cocktail Competition in Germany. 

“I am excited to have the opportunity to represent the U.S.,” says the native of Mozambique, “and am confident that the simplicity and beauty of the drink will be appealing on a worldwide stage as well.”
