Great drinks don’t always have to be spiked with alcohol. At EDSA Beverage Design Studio, they can make you rethink drinks as they pioneer the pursuit of the noble beverage. In other words, they rethink classic beverages and use their connoisseur approach to produce more balanced drinks, showcasing unique ingredients that unexpectedly work well together. While Edsa Beverage Design Group’s main line of business is to develop delicious concoctions for their food clients, humble customers like us can have a taste (and peek!) of their creative process in their hipster, industrial-style studio, where they serve their COO soda, non-alcoholic ginger beer, and even third wave artisanal coffee where you can opt for Ethiopian or Kenyan brews. Whatever floats your boat, they can probably whip it up here.
