Poblacion, Makati City “I loved the story of Santa Claus coming through the chimney tops on Christmas—I grew up in Baguio and our house had a chimney (it’s mandatory lol)—giving gifts while the children are asleep. And I loved more the story of mothers keeping a glass of milk and cookies for him to eat. I thought, what if Santa wanted to booze up while on his around-the-world trip? So I just came up with the elements of this popular Christmas story, from the milk, cookies, and chocolates. Adding Johnnie Walker Gold for the vibrant notes of spices and serving it in a tall glass. Who knows, Santa may be putting my name on the ‘nice kids’ list permanently.”– Clayton Glass: highball Garnish: chocolate and white chocolate snow dust Ice: cube Ingredients: 50 ml JW Gold Reserve 15 ml chocolate cookie syrup 30 ml Intramuros Liqueur de Cacao 30 ml milk Directions: Add all ingredients in a shaker.
