Here at the Cosmo HQ, we love a good cocktail. Some of us enjoy sangrias and strawberry-based drinks, while others crave anything with a hint of lime. Personally, I'm drawn to cocktails that are pretty and pink and don't taste like alcohol.
If you're looking to find your next favorite drink, you're in luck: The first-ever Manila Cocktail Festival is happening this week! From September 12 to 14, experienced bartenders will bring their A game to several spots around Makati CBD, Poblacion, and BGC.
