Yassi Pressman drinks to becoming the Ginebra San Miguel 2023 Calendar Girl.
The news came as a shock to the 27-year-old actress, especially since it entailed being "the best version of myself right away."
But as a "Queen of the Barangay" who wants to send inspiring messages to her followers, she took the job to encourage people that with dedication, grit, and self-discipline, anything is achievable.
At the same time, Yassi is keen on imparting the essence of the work-life balance she applies to maintain her vigorous social lifestyle.
Among the questions asked during her media launch was her favorite cocktail drink. mojito, which is usually made with rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and fresh mint.
Yassi decribed it as "very easy to serve po."
She continued, "...in my house, my friends are parang pamilya na hindi na po nagpapaalam.
"Yung gano'n, so they just go and they grab it and then it's easy kasi di na sila magtatanong, 'Saan na yung ganito, to mix it with whatever.'
"So they just put it on with ice and then they enjoy it. So I think it also has a very light taste na madali lang inumin."
During the event, Yassi also prepared a drink called "velocity mix," which consists of gummy bears, blue sports drink, fruit slices, and lime soda.
THE PERFECT PARTY FOR YASSI
Aside from drinking with her friends at home, Yassi also revealed her love for holding themed parties.
She said, "The last one we did was sunflower, we did disco, we did Coachella."
"So the house now parang medyo events place na yata na home. Di ba gym in the morning, then at night it turns into something completely different when my friends are there.
"It's not so big, but you actually get to connect with every person who's there and everybody's just dancing and having fun.
"Good music, good drinks, and company," she cited.
She may have an outgoing lifestyle, but Yassi believes one still has to be responsible when it comes to alcohol consumption.
"I guess you just have to drink responsibly, di ba? You drink responsibly, don't overdrink.
"Lalung-lalo na yung magda-drive, don't do that, make sure na meron kayong kasama to make sure na safe kayo, kasi yun ang pinaka-importante."
For Yassi, it's all about moderation.
And since it's going to be the season for Christmas parties soon, she left a reminder:
"...ngayon bumabalik na yung mga social events, just don't overdo it. Again, drink responsibly.
"I think my first time yata [experiencing getting drunk] because siyempre hindi pa ako sanay, di ba? So nagulat ako, 'tapos alam ko na rin yung effects when you overdo it, so ayokong mag-overdo."
