Pick Your Potion: Celebrating Filipino Flavors in the Sky


Marco Polo Ortigas, Manila and Asian Dragon Magazine introduce Destileria Philippine-inspired cocktails at VU’s Sky Bar and Lounge

Capping off Filipino food month has never been more festive. Marco Polo Ortigas, Manila and Asian Dragon Magazine recently worked together to launch a limited line of cocktails inspired by Destileria Limtuaco’s line of Philippine Craft Spirits. The intimate gathering at VU’s Sky Bar and Lounge included guests from the media, restaurant and food & beverage industries.

Destileria Limtuaco VP for Admin, Brandon Jon Aw introduced guests to the refreshing flavors of Manille Basil Smash, playfully tangy Manille Dalandan Margarita, the delightfully & sultry Paradise Mojito, and the punchy, straight-forward Salamangkero. Guests had the opportunity to sample each libations as creatively prepared by the Sky Bar’s talented bartending crew. At the end of the evening, the crowd favorite among the four featured cocktails was showcased at VU’s as “Potion of the Quarter.” The crowd selected the Manille Dalandan Margarita to take centerstage at VU’s in the coming weeks.
