Last Thursday I told Mom I would be home a little late because I was going to Niner Ichi Nana to attend the launch of a healthy fruit drink.
I'm 34, but she seems to think I'm 4, that's why.
The "healthy fruit drink" was Manille Liqueur de Calamansi,
the newest product of Destileria Limtuaco

Manille is unique, zesty and fresh with a kick of calamansi.
(It has some vodka in it, but Mom doesn't really need to know.)
Besides, I wasn't really BS-ing about the healthy part. Manille is an all natural product
made using calamansi fruit from Mindoro, the calamansi capital of the Philippines.
You will find no artificial flavoring and preservatives in it. Only natural plant
pigments are used to enhance the product's color. Aaron will attest to this!

Some ideas on how you can play around with Manille

Manille, egg white, lemon juice, bourbon, sugar syup
Niner Ichi Nana Manille Signature
Manille, cointreau, orange juice, pineapple juice, tamarind
Manille Calamansi Meringue Tart
The ever so lovely Department of Agriculture Usec Berna Romulo-Puyat
who always champions our local farmers. The production of Manille will
help support Mindoro calamansi farmers and the Mangyan community
at the Tugdaan Center.
Look how lovely the packaging! Perfect to give as gifts to family and friends here and abroad!
Congratulations, Olivia!!! :)
