Coco Sour – Refreshingly tart, the Coco Sour pairs the rich notes of Don Papa Rum with the spiced pimento dram, bright notes of grapefruit juice and lemon, and adds a tropical twist with a coconut syrup. 

Manila Kiss – Don Papa Rum, Dragon fruit syrup, lemon juice, and rose lemonade, layered gently to create a marvellous gradient for this bright pink number.

Chocolate Wonderland – Don Papa Rum, red wine, cognac, cacao, dried apricots, star anise, and salt & pepper infuse overnight to create a holiday-inspired cocktail. Lengthen with hot water to warm you on a cold night, or stir up on the rocks for a spirit- forward hit; the Chocolate Wonderland delivers an air of mystery, sophistication, and the rich flavors of Don Papa Rum.

Malate Martini – Replacing the traditional vanilla vodka with Don Papa Rum, along with pineapple juice, passionfruit syrup, lemon juice, and egg white, this cocktail bridges the world of the classic Piña Colada with the Pornstar Martini. Served in a large coupe, and topped with a splash of Prosecco, this cocktail is the hero serve of the Manila Disco.
