Fellow southies, rejoice! Fresh off energetic nights with delicious highball serves, dance-worthy music, and a successful first run in Burgos Park, Taguig last April; the Johnnie Highball Bar is back. This time, they’ve come to the South in Molito, Alabang where you can enjoy a new line-up of exciting activities and programs while enjoying the big, bold flavors of Johnnie Walker.
The Johnnie Highball Bar in Molito, Alabang
The Johnnie Highball Bar has taken over The Courtyard at Molito Lifestyle Center and will be ongoing until September 11, 2022. Expect live performances and DJ sets, interactive arcade games, and delicious food popups throughout the four-week run.
“With the success of our Burgos Park run, we’ve seen how the Johnnie Highball Bar has played a role in social regeneration, bringing people back together to keep walking and taste more out of life,” shares Merell Beltran, Marketing Manager for Culture & Advocacy of Diageo Philippines. “We’re excited to bring the Johnnie Highball Bar to Alabang to cater to consumers in the South of Metro Manila and to bring the signature Johnnie Walker experience and introduce new ways they can enjoy Johnnie Walker.”
New Cocktails at the Johnnie Highball Bar in Molito, Alabang
The best part for me is that there are new cocktails to try at the Johnnie Highball Bar run in Molito, featuring recipes developed by Diageo Brand Ambassador Rian Assidao and Diageo Reserve World Class Philippine Bartender of the Year 2018 Lester Ligon.
Aside from the iconic Johnnie & Lime, Johnnie & Ginger, and Johnnie & Apple highballs, there’s also the Johnnie Guava Sour, a creative twist on the classic whisky sour and made with guava juice (this one is so refreshing and fruity, I had 4!); the Johnnie Orange Cold Brew, a balanced whisky and coffee cocktail made in collaboration with EACH Coffee and brightened with spiced orange syrup (this is perfect for coffee lovers – I had 2!); and the Johnnie Old Fashioned, a timeless whisky cocktail that brings out the bold flavor of Johnnie Walker, stirred down with sugar and garnished with an orange wedge (I haven’t been able to try this yet because I fell in love with the other 2 too quickly lol).
The entire Johnnie Walker Range, including Johnnie Walker Red Label, Johnnie Walker Black Label, Johnnie Walker Double Black, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Johnnie Walker Green Label, and Johnnie Walker Blue Label is also available at the bar for customers to enjoy by the shot or by the bottle.
