We’ve got cocktails in a bottle, mixes of mango, thyme, lemons and then some, in these colorful drinks.
While we’re waiting for or daydreaming about our summer getaway, we have these cocktails to cool us down while in the city. We know that these are only some of the many bars out there with mixes to toast the summer with, and you can find them on the Booky app, which is available on both Android and iPhone.
Circles Event Cafe – Makati Shangri La
In 2012, Makati Shangri La launched their Manila Sunshine cocktail to complement Depart of Tourism’s “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign. The drink uses lambanog from Quezon as a base, with pineapple and mango, a tinge of triple sec and dark tanduay rum, garnished with lemon grass and a sliced pineapple.
Las Flores – Fort Bonifacio
Red or white? Even we’re hard pressed to pick which sangria’s better. Also check out the rest of Las Flores’ drinks list. The mojitos and signature Moscow Mule cocktails are crowd favorites.
Long Bar – Raffles Makati
While Raffles pioneered the Singapore Sling, they also did their own mix for their Philippine home in Makati. The Makati Luxury Sling. The Makati Luxury Sling lives up to its name, mixing in Tanqueray Ten, Cherry Blossom, Grand Marnier Benedictine, Lime & Pineapple Juice topped with Angostura foam, topped with 24K Gold flakes.
Museum Cafe – Greenbelt 4
You’re going to want to try this: pandan infused rum with muddled watermelon, fresh mint, and calamansi. There’s also a lychee version of the drink if you’re not a big fan of watermelons.
Black Sheep – Fort Bonifacio
Black Sheep mixes in cucumber with basi, a sugarcane spirit from Ilocos.
The Curator – Legaspi Village
Evelyn Chick of The Hardbord Room in Canada mixed this one for the Curator. This is ‘Just in Thyme’, made of Bacardi Superior White Rum, Yellow Chartreuse, Lemon Juice, Honey, Chocolate Bitters, and (of course) Thyme.
Il Ponticello – Salcedo Village
A Ponti signature cocktail that mixes gin, mixed berries puree, orange marmalade, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, and rosemary.
EDSA Beverage Design Studio – Greenhills
Yes, it’s a bottled cocktail and yes, and it works. EDSA BDG has introduced a line of Better Common bottled craft cocktails, available at EDSA and its partner establishments. Seen in this picture is MOB Street: mixed with bourbon, cointreau, orange, thyme, and green mango.
