The cocktail bar at Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar has introduced four latest additions to its ever-expanding menu of highly creative – and increasingly Instagram-worthy – alcoholic concoctions. Featuring bold ingredients such as burnt cocoa husks, a homemade orgeat and a house-perfected kombucha made with a fermented jasmine and rose tea, these night-time elixirs offer a refreshing and vibrant alternative to a traditional tipple.
For the new menu, Simon O’Brien, Mr Chew’s Bar Manager, set out to create a unique range of flavourful and high-flair cocktails. His talents for crafting covetable cocktails continue to establish this former duplex turned loft-style restaurant as a true destination for food and spirits, where flavours may seem familiar but are always surprising.
Exclusively served at the upstairs bar, Mr Chew’s newest cocktail arrivals include: Fogueira (RM54), a beachinspired blend of gin, dry vermouth and a Luxardo Bianco infused with pineapple and coconut, this cocktail comes complete with a full-on sensory experience, from the small pile of burning cocoa husks to the edible sand; Jungle Fog (RM54), a soursop-infused gin drink with a fermented jasmine and rose tea kombucha that allows drinkers to pour a fog of jungle aroma onto their drinks for a full-on sensory experience; Inferno (RM58), a warm and herbal blend of Japanese whisky, Bentong ginger wine, spiced pomegranate juice and a homemade red dates and ginseng liqueur, perfect for warming the spirit; and Celestial 5 (RM58), a smoky, savoury blend of duck fat-washed dark rum with a Guinness reduction, orange bitters and a splash of hoisin sauce, presented along with an aromatic and fuming bed of hay for an olfactory escape to the great outdoors.
Available from 5:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., these innovative, one-of-a-kind cocktails provide an intoxicating addition to Mr Chew’s inventive dinner options or late-night bar bites, which includes the Catfish Char Siew and Som Tam-Stuffed Deep-Fried Bun, or as the perfect accompaniment to Mr. Chew’s Vinyl Sessions, a weekly event of specially curated vinyl collections by underground DJs every Friday and Saturday night from 10:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.
