Don Papa Rum 7 years old is perfect to level up the merrymakings of the holiday season

Spirits enthusiasts and holiday revelers alike are in for a treat as Don Papa Rum introduces two specialty holiday cocktails – the Sugarlandia Sour and Merienda Colada – created in collaboration between Audrey Gustilo, resident mixologist and brand ambassador of Don Papa Rum, and The Black Box Mobile Cocktail Bar, a mobile beverage bar offering special cocktails curated by world-class bartenders.

Even more exciting is that these holiday concoctions will be available at The Spirits Library in Makati City for three consecutive Fridays, starting November 24.

The two specialty holiday cocktails feature a uniquely Filipino twist. The Sugarlandia Sour is a riff on the classic Old Cuban. It is made with Don Papa Rum 7 years old, fresh kamias juice, and tamarind cordial. The mix is then shaken with ice and poured into a coupe glass, garnished with Yogurt Popping Caviar, and served in a garden bowl with smoke-dry ice, melding the festive spirit of the season and the rich greeneries of Sugarlandia, Don Papa Rum’s hometown.

The Merienda Colada is Sugarlandias holiday twist on the classic Pina Colada and the traditional Filipino snack turon and ube ice cream.

The Merienda Colada on the other hand is Sugarlandia’s holiday twist on the classic Piña Colada and the traditional Filipino snack turon and ube ice cream. It is made with Don Papa Rum 7 years old, Ube Cordial, pineapple juice, coconut, and rice milk. The concoction is then clarified with toasted soy milk, topped with white chocolate and kesong puti foam, and garnished with rice milk crackers, banana puree, and jello infused with Don Papa Rum 7 Years Old and jackfruit. The Merienda Colada highlights some of the uniquely Filipino flavors, and together with Don Papa Rum, creates an elegantly delectable cocktail that perfectly encapsulates the Filipino Christmas spirit.
