For decades, Cambodian refugee Sambonn Lek, has poured, shaken and stirred drinks as a legendary bartender in Washington, D.C. While behind the bar, Sam, as he’s fondly known, enjoys showcasing his signature magic tricks.
But, perhaps his greatest act has been creating "Sam Relief", a nonprofit group that builds schools, digs wells and provides rice to those in need in his native Cambodia.
You can try Sam’s iconic cocktails, “Sam I Am” and the "Capitol Mary", at home. Find the recipes on the CGTN America website.
