Digital: Don Papa Rum and Run Rabbit Run launched a virtual bar experience that focused on Cocktails To Go

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Don Papa Rum has teamed up with Run Rabbit Run for a virtual bar session that highlighted Cocktails To Go.

This partnership captured the exciting yet easygoing vibe of a bar through a fun Zoom session hosted by Bleeding Heart Rum Co.’s Program Development Manager Aaron Goodall, with signature drinks crafted by Run Rabbit Run head bartender Enzo Luna, and bartender Christina Soudji.

With bar businesses being one of the major industries hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, Cocktails To Go is an online cocktail delivery service that provides bartenders with a platform to stay on top of their game while supporting the call for bar regulars to stay home and enjoy their favorite Don Papa Rum cocktails.  


As Goodall puts it, now that Manila is in General Community Quarantine, Don Papa Rum is very much open to exploring more ways to get customers to enjoy their drinks through online deliveries.

According to Luna, they were quite fortunate to already be exploring and developing the logistics behind Cocktails To Go before the pandemic hit, allowing them to be ahead of the curve in providing a solution for rum enthusiasts to enjoy their cocktails during the quarantine.

“This ECQ has also been an opportunity for us to hone our craft and share our knowledge with fellow bartenders,” Soudji added.

The Virtual Bar Session featured three Don Papa Rum cocktails concocted by the Run Rabbit Run bartenders:

Banana Rum Daiquiri

A light, classic cocktail that features a perfect balance of rum, sugar, and lime with a touch of banana liqueur for an enticing, tropical touch.

Masskara Old Fashioned

A local take on the classic bar favorite Old Fashioned, this blend features the locally spiced tasting profile of Don Papa Masskara with a touch of aromatic bitters. The cocktail is peppered with subtle citrus notes, hints of honey, and siling labuyo that adds a kick of spice and heat to the drink.

Don Chocoroni

This is a localized take of the Kingston Negroni made even better with Don Papa Rum. The cocktail is infused with cacao husk to give this special negroni a rich balance of vanilla, chocolate, and tart.

The Virtual Bar session did not just serve as a tutorial on how to make the featured cocktails. The guests were also able to get a taste of these cocktail creations thanks to Run Rabbit Run’s Cocktails To Go service, with the ingredients and materials for each drink hand-delivered to their homes. Guests also got tips and tricks from the Run Rabbit Run bartenders about customizing their cocktails with everyday ingredients that can be found in one’s home.

With our country slowly but carefully easing into the ‘New Normal’, there’s still a long way before we can go back to our regular nights out in our favorite bars. But that does not mean we can’t enjoy the connection and conversations with our friends over Zoom with our favorite cocktails in hand.
