bartender and cocktail

Everyone has its own kind of love. Christian Jude Basog, bartender from the Philippines, tells us what his first love looks like… as a cocktail!

Christian shared exclusively with Spirits Hunters the “Love At First Sip” cocktail, for our summer love stories.


If my first love were a cocktail, it would be a twist on the Espresso Martini: the Love at First Sip

My first love relates to this cocktail : A sweet and bubbly personality outside yet a bold and full of genuine character inside!
