A few days ago, I, along with other bloggers and media friends participated in a one-of-a-kind experience at Marco Polo Davao. The hotel introduces the new Silk Road Iced Coffee to the members of the media and bloggers. Instead of the usual media launch, Marco Polo Davao came up with a fun event leading to the launch of the new product. It was like an amazing race where we had challenges and pit stops before the main event. It was fun and entertaining.
Created from overnight-infused coffee flavoured with cinnamon syrup and milk, the Iced Coffee consists of a blended frappuccino poured into a swirled, chocolate-glazed glass symbolising the roads well-travelled of the Silk Road. Topped with marshmallow, burnt gold-peaked meringues are flambée-finished by blow torch, emanating the sun-glinting mountains along the legendary route. The iced beverage will be presented with a fresh cookie smothering marshmallows and chocolate between Graham crackers, warmed to perfection, inviting guests to explore the history of the Silk Road.
“We are delighted to unveil the next in the series of our signature beverages for Marco Polo Hotels. The Silk Road Iced Coffee was created during a competitive contest of fabulously designed and deliciously different coffees originated by our General Managers. The combination of iced coffee and warmed cinnamon cookies will make it one of the most appealing and flavourful drinks for our savvy guests and connoisseurs of culture, said Mr Philippe Caretti, Vice President Operations, Wharf Hotels.

Following the success of the Signature Earl Grape Iced Tea, Marco Polo Davao launched another signature beverage, the Silk Road Iced Coffee which will now fall part of Marco Polo-wide signature items.
You can enjoy this new drink in any of Marco Polo Davao's restaurants and bars at Php260.00 nett.
