Tanduay Cocktail Culture:

Standing on its own, or accompanying a dish, the perfect cocktail is versatile and a welcome addition to any food trip. GRID x Tanduay: Cocktail Culture is a series following mixologist Dondz Bolante around the Philippines as he crafts cocktails inspired by the flavors of the different regions.

Up the northwest tip of Luzon lies the coastal town of Bolinao, famed for its limestone rock formations, underwater caves, and white sand beaches. Dondz adds a lively twist to a favorite beachside refreshment, infusing the sweet, full-bodied taste of crushed mangoes in milk with just a kick of sour lemon. Pair it with a slice of sticky sweet Binunguey, a local delicacy in Bolinao, and you’ve got yourself the perfect mix to battle out the summer heat.
