BOYS WEIGH IN ON 5 GIRLY DRINKS WE LOVE

Happy hour now means it's time for dessert.
BOYS WEIGH IN ON 5 GIRLY DRINKS WE LOVE Happy hour now means it's time for dessert.

Majority of women have a serious case of the sweet tooth and that is a fact. And while we can always take on a zero-degree beer or whiskey on-the-rocks if we wanted to, who’s to say that a good old “girly” cosmopolitan or martini can’t get the job done? Classics will always be classics, but very much like trends that come and go, there are always newbies that pique our interest. Our recent cravings? Alcohol in a bottle and spiked shakes.  

PS: We asked the guys to drink them with us to prove our point that these are indeed, girly drinks.

BLACK BEAR : made with a chocolate ice cream base, milk, vodka, Kahlua, peanut butter and syrup

Php160, SWEET ECSTASY, Jupiter St, Makati

She says: It tastes like peanut butter cups!

He says: "Sarap. Kulang nalang burger."

There is more to Sweet X than just having ridiculously delish burgers because Jupiter’s new place-to-be also offers crazy good milkshakes. No frills, just like the place and the munchies. Don’t be fooled by its paper cup packaging because what’s inside is legit. Expect thick and creamy milkshakes (as it should be) with their Adult Shakes blended well with your poison of choice.

Spiked Cookie made with Bailey's, coffee, cream, and chocolate chip cookies

Php 120, THE LOST BREAD, StrEAT Food Park, Maginhawa St., Quezon City

She says: I love the cookie bits! A good play on milk and cookies. 

He says: "Such a girly drink, where's the alcohol?" (We had to explain to them that they needed to squeeze the tube to get their dose of alcohol. Pfft.)

What started from a young couple’s love for french toast, the Lost Bread (the direct english translation of the French term for the toast), has evolved into a spot that mostly caters to milkshake lovers. You’ve probably seen their cotton candy-topped shakes, but they also have four 18+ shakes to try. With the liquor placed in small tubes, you can decide just how spiked you want your dessert drink to be.

He says: "Lasang beer, kailangan lang ng pulutan.

You won’t only find really good coffee from EDSA, because just like their caffeine fixes, they also brew their own sodas under the label Coo (a play on CO2) and Better Common cocktails (they are made to be, well, better than the common). Take your pick from the interesting flavors (in varying alcohol levels) that will explode smoothly in your mouth the way a good cocktail should.
