Cocktail bars in Singapore: What to drink at the city’s best speakeasies, lounges and watering holes
Quench your thirst
It's safe to say that our city's bar scene is poppin' — and when that happens, one can get clouded with the overwhelming list of options. We're here to make things a little easier; drink wise, and its respective calorie count. These three tipples are on our list this week.
1. Oracle's Elixir, from Summerlong
Estimate calorie count: 242
The unbearable heat in our city calls for a quick refresher — a drink you start with while at Summerlong. The Oracle's Elixir is showered with saccharine notes of orange blossom, lychee and passionfruit infused with gin. If you love libations to bear a citrus side, this one's for you. Plus, that pop of sunshine is bound to make any dreary day instantly brighter.
2. The Farm is Burnt, from Smoke & Mirrors
Estimate calorie count: 95
Leave it to Smoke & Mirrors to churn out a long list of new infusions, from their 'Illusions of Flavours' menu. This glass features an unlikely combination of tomato juice and vodka, which might not be everyone's flavour. But with a little smokey treatment from the deft bartender, and we think we might just have another of this heavyweight cocktail.
3. Chamomile Sour from Publico Ristorante
Estimate calorie count: 122
Whisky sour(s) were made to be reinvented — but they have to be done right. Head mixologist of Publico Ristorante, Woodrow Goh puts his own spin with a good splash of bourbon, chamomile syrup and egg white. A sweet aperitif to kickstart the night ahead of handmade pastas and wood-fired pizzas.
