Summer is here and Steal my Sunshine is the perfect drink to welcome it. The mango sweetness reminds you sunny days, with that tart kick from the calamansi to bring you back to the present.


  • 60 ml Paradise Mango Rum
  • 15 ml Manille Calamansi Liqueur
  • 20 ml Calamansi Shrub
  • 10 ml Da vinci Tropical Passionfruit


  1. Place ingredients in a shaker with ice.
  2. Shake and pour into glass.
  3. Garnish with dehydrated calamansi wheels and dried mango.

Note: You may use fresh sliced calamansi wheels if dehydrated calamansi is not available. To dehydrate calamansi wheels, use a food dehydrator. Food dehydrators are often costly so you can use your trusty home oven as an alternative method. Switch the oven to its lowest setting, and put the citrus for at least 6 to 8 hours or as long as you get your desired results.

How to make the shrub:

  • 250 g calamansi wheels (deseeded)
  • 250 g raw sugar
  • 1 tbsp pink peppercorns, crushed
  • 250 ml cane vinegar or to taste
  1. Put calamansi and pink peppercorns in a bowl and cover in sugar.
  2. Cover and leave for at least 24 hours
  3. Add cane vinegar and strain. is your learned drinking buddy who can tell you what to drink, what you’re drinking and where to drink.
