Get limited-edition Don Papa Rum cocktails over the holidays

Taste the wonders of Sugarlandia with Don Papa Rum’s special holiday cocktails.

Don Papa Rum makes the holidays even merrier with the debut of two Filipino-inspired cocktails: the Sugarlandia Sour and Merienda Colada. Available for three weekends at Poblacion’s The Spirits Library, the drinks are a collaboration between Audrey Gustilo, resident mixologist and brand ambassador of Don Papa Rum, and Katipunan drinking hotspot Blackbox.

The Sugarlandia Sour is a new take on the classic Old Cuban, 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.

Meanwhile, the Merienda Colada is Sugarlandia’s holiday twist on the classic Piña Colada and the traditional turon and ube ice cream. It is made with Don Papa Rum 7 years old, ube cordial, pineapple juice, coconut, and rice milk. The mix is clarified with toasted soy milk, topped with white chocolate and kesong puti foam, and garnished with rice milk crackers, banana puree, and a jello infused with Don Papa Rum 7 Years Old and jackfruit.

These special cocktail recently debuted at Baked Studios, where Don Papa Rum brought guests to a multi-sensorial experience that encapsulated the Sugarlandia experience. With stylized exotic foliage encapsulating the lush flora and fauna of the island of Negros, the event transported guests to a realm where mystery and reality meet.
