The gin of choice way back then was Ginebra (bilog or kwatro kantos), also called gin bulag because there were rumors it would make you go blind. Now we’ve already tackled the Gin-Pom (gin-pomelo), also from this era. Another gin combo that you might (or might not, depending on how much you were drinking) remember is Ginocolait = gin and Chocolait. One more wholesome drink from childhood mixed with liquor. I know some of you might grimace at the thought of mixing gin with chocolate milk, but the result is surprisingly yummy. The taste is predominantly chocolatey, with just a slight gin flavor. It’s like a poor man’s Bailey’s.
