Tanduay Cocktail Culture: Dumaguete

  • Jun
  • 6

Adventure surrounds Dumaguete, the laidback town of transients known for its natural wonders. So while it may be called ‘The City of Gentle People’, Dumaguete├▒os are anything but tame. It’s the quintessential town for travelers; warm and welcoming, and filled with the possibility of an escapade around the corner.

Right on Rizal Boulevard, Dondz whips up a zesty tribute to this outdoorsy bunch. This easy cocktail is great company on a hot day in town; refreshing, tangy, and, like the city, filled with spice. GRID x Tanduay: Cocktail Culture is a series following Dondz around the Philippines as he crafts cocktails inspired by its different regions.
