Not planning to do the whole National Day Parade thing? That’s ok. Some of us show our patriotism in different ways — like raising our glasses to Motherland in the company of good friends. And it’s nice that a number of hip watering holes are pouring out something special for the occasion, making it totally legit.
MO Bar will be offering the Roaring City cocktail at a discounted price of $20++ (UP $24++), along with a complimentary welcome drink and lobster roll to guests from 6pm to 10pm. One of the highlights of MO Bar’s cocktail menu, Roaring City is a refreshing tipple inspired by Singapore. Concocted with sparkling pineapple tapache, then topped with vermouth jelly and a curry leaf garnish, it’s served on top of a Peranakan tile.
Bar Canary has put an alcoholic twist to bubble teas. Paradise Pop is a refreshing tipple of osmanthus sencha tea, laced with gin and topped with lychee pearls. It’s a summer cocktail that takes you to paradise with every sip. Smooth Criminal is made with lavender and earl grey teas, with a base of whisky, angostura bitters, caramel syrup, fresh milk and Frangelico liqueur. Warning: this concoction is deliciously addictive. They’re $17++ each.
