This month, we’re toasting to (and with) all the wonderful cocktails that had us in a tizzy.
“I’m buzzing from The Disgruntled Chef at Ann Siang’s creation of Bee’s Knees, a deceptively delicate brew of camomile-infused gin shot through with a citrusy tang courtesy of lemon, orange and honey. It’s served in a glazed tea bowl that’s incredibly Instagram-friendly, so have your smartphone at the ready!” – Eugene Quek, associate editor at www.herworldplus.com
“This gin-based concoction called Aloevation from new rooftop bar Terra is the perfect, easy-to-drink, hot-weather cocktail. It’s got aloe vera juice, lime and cucumber with a sprig of dill. A great combo of lightly sweet and tangy flavours. – Alyssa Dhaliwal, writer at www.herworldplus.com
“Three reasons why this Cornflake Old Fashioned from Melbourne bar Bad Frankie is a winner: It’s a boozy take on a favourite childhood snack; it’s exceedingly well balanced and potent to boot; and it’s managed to convince me – a staunch wine drinker – to break habit and give it a shot!“ – Tan Min Yan, lifestyle editor
“Nothing spells ‘relaxing beach vacation’ like pina coladas and mojitos – that’s why they’re always my must-order drinks when I visit a holiday spot like Phuket or Bali!” – Penny Seow, associate art director
“Fancy something stronger than coﬀee during Sunday brunch? I love the Coﬀee Negroni on Humpback’s brunch menu. It’s still unmistakably a coﬀee drink thanks to the coﬀee ice cube, but the mix of gin, vermouth and Campari gives it a much-welcome boost.” – Aretha Loh, features writer
“Sometimes, you can absolutely judge a book by its cover – as in the case of this cheekily named My Next Mistake from Gibson, which comes in a stunning copper pineapple cup. The refreshing beetroot, raspberry and orange vodka-based concoction is definitely not a mistake to order!”– Lee Xin Hui, features writer
