As a treat to yourself, loosen up at Johnnie Walker’s Johnnie Highball Bar, brunch on Wildflour’s limited-edition Nutella and Wildflour Café + Bakery box, and feast on other drink and dessert releases this month.

Celebrate with Patrón Tequila

Extra special drinks for extra special occasions

 

 

Celebrate with Patrón Tequila—a vibrant and bold drink that’s at par with the endless celebrations commemorating Mexico’s victory over France in 1862. Patrón Tequila’s versatility allows you to enjoy it beyond the typical shooter with salt and lime: enjoy it chilled or on the rocks, as a base in a cocktail or on its own. 

 

Choose among Patrón’s signature tequilas: Patrón Silver, Patrón Reposado or Patrón Anejo.

Brownies Unlimited raises the bar with their Premium Brownies

The SM mall dessert staple just got an upgrade

 

 

Brownies Unlimited has been around for a long time; since 1988, to be exact. (I used to spend my teenage summers working here part-time, so this feels particularly nostalgic.) It’s the perfect pasalubong during trips to the mall, and their bite-sized brownies pair perfectly with coffee after a whole day of shopping.

 

This time around, Brownies Unlimited raises their bar with their Premium Brownies, which are twice as large as their original brownies and have a premium brownie base, resulting in a richer and fudgier brownie. 

 

The Premium Brownies come in four flavors: Strawberry Sherbet, Caramel Pecan, Cookies and Cream, and Ultimate Fudge.

 

For the mindful drinker, Herbie Hard Seltzer is the one for you

Drink all night long without worrying about the morning-after hangover 

 

 

For savvy drinkers who love socializing with a round of drinks but don’t want to compromise their health goals, this one’s for you. The Herbie Hard Seltzer is the perfect pairing to summer’s scorching weather, coming in three refreshing flavors: Lychee, Pineapple and Lime. 

 

The canned alcoholic drink is low-calorie (38 calories!), low-alcohol, low-sugar, gluten-free and vegan, but still packs a punch with its all-natural flavors and sweeteners.

 

Find Herbie Hard Seltzer at all Robinsons Marketplace stores. Follow Herbie Hard Seltzer on Instagram @herbiehardseltzer or visit herbiehardseltzer.com for more information.

 

Feast in nostalgia with Wildflour Cafe + Bakery and Nutella’s latest collaboration

Nothing screams breakfast of champions than bread and hazelnut spread

 

 

Breakfast has always been a staple of Filipino culture, whether it’s a home-cooked champorado on a rainy morning or freshly baked pandesal from the panaderya next door. On the other hand, Nutella has been a local favorite for years, making its rounds in cakes, pastries and various desserts. 

 

For its latest release, Nutella goes back to breakfast with its Good Morning packs: jars labeled with messages such as “Tara, Breakfast!” and “Gandang Umaga!” bringing in a joyful start to your day.

 

Wildflour Cafe + Bakery joins Nutella to create the best breakfast collaboration of the year with the release of a limited edition Bread box containing the classic spread together with the bakery’s most popular baked goods.

Rise with Chivas Regal and BLACKPINK’s Lisa

The leading Scotch whisky brand teams up with one of K-pops most influential stars

 

 

The Philippines witnesses two major milestones by leading Sotch whisky brand Chivas Regal. BLACKPINK’s Lisa becomes the brand’s newest and first female ambassador in Asia, leading the campaign called “I Rise, We Rise.” As a pop culture icon and inspiration to many, Lisa and Chivas Regal team up to celebrate and uplift this generation of eager hustlers forging their own paths. After witnessing her tireless determination to climb to the top, Chivas believes that she fits the bill as the best spokesperson.

 

Next to that, Chivas Regal also unveils the new look of the Chivas 12. The 12-year-old blended Scotch whisky gets a bolder upgrade with a new bottle and a more vibrant shade of crimson. The brand reveals that the Chivas 12 bottle uses 100% recyclable and environmentally-sound materials for its packaging. This move is a step further towards its target of achieving 100% recyclable, reusable compostable or bio-based packaging by 2025.

 

Philippine residents can get their hands on the brand new Chivas 12 bottle, as well as see Lisa gracing different billboards and materials as early as May 6, 2022. All these will culminate in an installation at Bonifacio High Street, where visitors can drop by, have a taste of Chivas 12 and other activities.

 

Get your hands on a bottle of Chivas 12 in nationwide supermarkets and leading e-commerce sites.
