Johnnie Walker x CL
The fresh way to whisky up ahead
ICYMI, Johnnie Walker teamed up with global K-Pop sensation CL to introduce a fresh new way to enjoy the world’s number one Scotch Whisky: #JohnnieHighball. But what do Johnnie and CL have in common? For one, both believe in pushing boundaries to taste more out of life.
“I’ve always hoped that by forging new paths, breaking down cultural barriers and challenging stereotypes, I could inspire others to never feel constrained by their background or the status quo they see in the world around them. I’m really excited to tell this story with Johnnie Walker because I recognize their 200-year history of pushing boundaries and challenging norms all over the world,” says CL.
Ahead, the fresh new way to enjoy whisky according to CL: build, mix and dunk! Follow these easy steps and make your own #JohnnieAndLime. It’s a refreshing drink that packs a smoky and citrusy punch.
Try it and get your own Johnnie & Lime x CL Highball Bundle for P1,440.00 and get a free highball glass for every purchase of Johnnie Walker Black Label in all leading supermarkets nationwide. For CL fans, stay tuned for a super contest to get the chance to win a signed Johnnie Walker bottle from your idol, plus a #JohnnieHighball bar cart with P50,000.00 worth of Johnnie Walker products!

Shake Shack’s Gochujang Chick’n is Here
Shake Shack’s Gochu~
Here’s another combo you can’t miss: Seoul-style fried chicken meets Shake Shack. Available for a limited time, Gochujang Chick’n (P275) features a gochujang-glazed crispy chicken breast topped with toasted sesame seeds that sits over a white kimchi slaw.
The star ingredient, Gochujang, is a go-to in Korean cooking and made with red chili peppers, sticky rice, fermented soybeans, and salt. The result is an explosion of flavors—spicy, sweet, and umami! Shake Shack also throws in garlic and ginger for an extra punch. But what really brings it all together is the white kimchi slaw. It’s a tribute to the white daikon radishes served alongside other Seoul food favorites.
But wait, there’s more. Shake Shack’s Gochu with a K-inspired menu starting September 27! Watch your favorite K-drama with your chinggus at home with some Gochujang Chick’n Bites (6pcs for P215 or 10pcs for P265) with a side of Gochujang Fries (P205) or crispy crinkle cut fries. Both are served with delicious spicy-sweet Gochujang mayo sauce. Looking for something sweet? Try the Black Sugar Shake (P210), a toasted-caramel black sugar hand spun with vanilla frozen custard, topped with whipped cream and black sugar syrup.
And just in time for pay day, from September 27 to October 1, you can get exclusive Gochujang sets with a free Blueberry Lemonade for every purchase when you order through GrabFood! 많이 드세요
