FOLLOWING the successful introduction to the public of its signature Earl Grape Iced Tea, Marco Polo Hotels recently launched a new beverage called Silk Road Iced Coffee. It joins the hotel chain’s series of signature beverages.
Marco Polo Hotels owns and runs Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, among other Marco Polo properties in the Philippines.
The new tempting signature treat is created from coffee flavored with cinnamon syrup and milk and infused overnight so its natural flavor comes out. Silk Road Iced Coffee consists of a blended iced Frappuccino poured into a swirled chocolate-glazed glass, symbolizing the well-traveled roads down the Silk Road. It is topped with marshmallow, and its burnt gold-peaked meringues are flambé-finished with a blow torch, so that sun-glinting mountains along the legendary route look like they are emanating from it. The iced beverage is presented with a fresh cookie, smothering marshmallows and chocolate between Graham crackers, warmed to perfection and inviting guests to come and explore the history of the Silk Road through a refreshing drink named after it.
The new signature iced coffee drink was first introduced when an innovative contest was held for intricately and refreshingly designed iced coffees during an assembly of general managers from Niccolo and Marco Polo Hotels. The combination of infused Frappuccino and the crunchy Cinnamon S’mores made it one of the most appealing and flavorful drinks that definitely complements sweet cravings.
Silk Road Iced Coffee is now available at Café Pronto, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s chic and casual coffee shop which is located at the Ground Floor of the hotel.
(Marco Polo Ortigas Manila is located at Meralco Ave. corner Sapphire St., Ortigas Center, Pasig City; with telephone number 720-7777.)
