MANILA, Philippines -  Cocktail trends were also tackled at the event. Mixologist/restaurateur Enzo Lim of Maharlika and Jeepney restaurants in New York presented Pinoy-inspired cocktails using Ginebra SanMiguel Premium Gin.

“This year, we’re seeing two main trends: the use of local ingredients; and drinkers experimenting and creating their own cocktails at home,” explained Giselle Villanueva, brand manager, GSM Premium Gin.
Lim showed us how easy it is to make the Pinoy Parasol cocktail by mixing the GSM Premium Gin with lemongrass-pandan concentrate, lemon juice, mango nectar and guyabano juice. It’s playful and refreshing — just like the colorful “payong.”
