Chef Michael Elégbèdé gave us another reason to crush on Pedro’s Africa premium ogogoro. If this is your first time hearing of it, the premium spirit is batch distilled and made with 100% organic palm spirit. Handcrafted in Nigeria’s riverine communities and then refined in Lagos, it’s the first of its kind in the country. As we approach gifting season, get ready to experience this amazing cocktail at all your holiday parties. (It’s currently sold out, but will be back in time for the holidays!).

The heat ☀️ in Lagos lately has been insane!
