Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - Drink - Text: Chris­tian Jay B. Quilo SunS­tar Writer

Who doesn’t drink but is down for a good party, can I get a raise of hands? It’s Ok­to­ber­fest, which means par­ties left and right will be brim­ming with beer. But just be­cause you don’t drink, that doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the Ok­to­ber­fest fun. Fret not, mock­tails are equally de­li­cious con­coc­tions sans the al­co­hol to keep you com­pany on a long night of par­ty­ing. The best part is no al­co­hol means you won’t get tipsy or suf­fer a bad hang­over! Check this list out of must-try mock­tails from some of Cebu’s top re­sorts and ho­tels.

QUEST PUNCH by Quest Ho­tel and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter – Cebu

Trop­i­cal and tangy, Quest Ho­tel Cebu’s sig­na­ture mock­tail is made with freshly squeezed or­ange, pineap­ple, wa­ter­melon, and mango. These bright fla­vors are ac­cen­tu­ated with mango chunks and pineap­ple tid­bits and topped with a sunny slice of le­mon. One can en­joy this drink while din­ing at Pusô Bistro & Bar or while loung­ing in the Pool Bar.

WA­TER­MELON LE­MON MINT SPRING by Water­front Cebu City Ho­tel & Casino

Like spring, each sip of this mock­tail is lit­er­ally a breath of fresh air. In­gre­di­ents in­clude slices of wa­ter­melon and le­mon, some mint leaves and Sprite for a sub­tle buzz, and sugar syrup for a sweet fin­ish. This monthly spe­cial is avail­able at any of the ho­tel’s din­ing out­lets through­out Oc­to­ber.

CU­CUM­BER MULE by Crim­son Re­sort and Spa Mac­tan

Enye by Chele Gon­za­lez’ Cu­cum­ber Mule is a suc­cu­lent mix of re­fresh­ing in­gre­di­ents such as cu­cum­ber and fresh lime juice that strikes the per­fect bal­ance of sweet and sour, plus gin­ger ale to liven up the drink a bit and a whole lot of fizz.

THE BASIL­ICO by Shangri-La’s Mac­tan Re­sort and Spa, Cebu

This light and zesty drink is a med­ley of pineap­ple juice and lime-fla­vored soda, gar­nished with mud­dled basil leaves. A glass of this smooth mock­tail would be per­fect while en­joy­ing the ocean view at Shangri-La Mac­tan’s Cowrie Cove Seafood Bar & Grill.

by Marco Polo Plaza Cebu This spe­cialty mock­tail is a cool blend of soda wa­ter as base mixed with fresh green mango juice and a touch of cala­mansi, sweet­ened by cherry blos­som and ly­chee syrup. It is fin­ished off with a hint of basil for the right amount of aroma and pi­quancy.
