Spell Saab

I only learned how to drink whisky a few years ago. I always thought whisky was a drink for snobs, so I never really got into it. You guys know I’m more of a beer kinda girl. But curiosity is like an itch: the longer you ignore it, the more it begs for your attention. Hanging out with my guy friends has definitely taught me a thing or two about drinking whisky and now I can’t get enough of it!! My absolute favorite drink is the Old Fashioned.

Old Fashioned -- a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, such as whiskey or brandy, and a twist of citrus rind

If you guys want to up your alcohol game and learn more about whisky then look no further, because The Journey with Johnnie Walker is happening soon! What does this have to do with whisky-drinking and cocktail creation, you ask? The Journey with Johnnie Walker is not just any party, it’s a multi-sensory experience in one night! It’s going to be held at Valkyrie – the biggest party place in Manila right now – on July 23, Thursday.


The dance floor is going to feature three of the biggest DJs in the country, all collaborating to create never before heard mixes. That’s enough reason for me to go BUT WAIT — THERE’S MORE!!! Haha! Three different party rooms await partygoers, with each room having a special feature. One of them, The Red Room (nope, Christian Grey will not be there), has a mixology class! It’s been a small goal of mine to be able to bartend at home for when I have friends over so I’m really looking forward to that. Using the different variants of Johnnie Walker, mixologists will be teaching us curious individuals how to create yummy and flavorful cocktails.

I’m sure many of you want to experience the biggest party of the year, so head on over to my Instagram page as I’m going to give away passes to The Journey with Johnnie Walker in a bit! Five lucky winners will not only score three passes each, but will also be picked up by an UBER car to and from the party. Don’t forget to follow Johnnie Walker’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages, as well as UBER’s Facebook page! I’M SUPER EXCITED TO PARTY WITH YOU GUYSSSS!!! Looking forward to seeing you on the 23rd!!

    This is unrelated to the post. But, I was about to ask/tell you something. When I saw the box at the side, I thought, “Yay! Saab put up the ask thingy again.” I immediately wrote my question (It was pretty long pa naman). Yun pala, it was just a search box. Haay :(
    PS: Love you xx

    Hi Saab,

    The Old Fashioned is my all time favorite drink and the only drink I can make well. I shared my recipe on my blog a few months ago. Check it out if you can: http://www.laneyatbp.com/call-me-old-fashioned/

    I usually use Makers Mark or Four Roses. I haven’t tried it with Johnny Walker, but I’ll definitely try it next time.

    Glad you’re a whisky/whiskey drinker!
