The summer season is officially upon us, bringing with it an insane spike in the temperature. It can be unbearable to take a stroll outside in the midday sun, and the breezy evenings of the past few months have long been replaced by humid nights. There are many ways to fight the heat, but we have to admit that nothing can do the trick like a tall, ice-cold glass of halo-halo, the country’s trademark frozen dessert.

While a glass of halo-halo can contain an endless combination of ingredients, we’re assuming that you’ve yet to try an alocohol-laced version of this treat. Enter the halo-halo cocktail, an original concoction by Kat Nantes of Paire Cocktails and Pastries. The secret’s in the splash of rum added in the glass—it’ll make you feel like you’re standing in the intersection between your nostalgic childhood summers and your grown-up years.

Scroll through the gallery below to see how you can make this treat!

Paire Cocktails and Pastries is located at the ground floor of Cocoon Hotel, Sct. Tobias cor. Sct. Rallos streets, Quezon City. Call 579-1554 or email for more information.
