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.

  • Tanduay Cocktail Culture: Surigao

Dondz has found his next cocktail inspiration among the pebbled coasts of Surigao, a city that’s famed for its many beaches. Beach-hopping demands some serious downtime, and Dondz has accounted for it in his latest creation: a rich, chocolatey cocktail made with local tablea and fresh milk, sharpened with a sliver of chili to keep things interesting. Loosen up and indulge with this Spiced Cocoa Rum.
