Rum • Sweet
Sagada Ube Shake

NYC’s Jeepney is a Filipino gastropub where you can order everything from super traditional balut (fertilized duck egg) to bar bites like banana ketchup ribs. Helmed by Philippe Garcesto, the restaurant's bar program uses traditional ingredients, like the ube yam, to create some of its cocktails. “Ube has a distinctive purple color and uniquely sweet taste, so transforming it into a cocktail was just natural,” Garcesto says. “We often incorporate the (ube) ice cream into a traditional dessert called Halo Halo, so we mixed it into a milkshake spiked with Filipino rum.” Most Filipino grocery stores carry ube ice cream, and the jam is available on Amazon. Rice Krispies give the boozy shake a satisfying crunch.
