Event Report: Singapore Cocktail Week Tour of Bar Stories, Long Bar, Anti:Dote and Tippling Club

4 bars, many drinks, 1 Alexis and friends. That's what happened last night on the Singapore Cocktail Week tour as I joined some new friends and familiar faces to visit a few bars to try out their special concoctions, available for 1 week only for only $14++ (with wristbands purchased). You can also take part in the Cocktail Tours that's ongoing every night -- visit www.singaporecocktailweek.com.sg for more info.

1st stop: Bar Stories. This was the bar that named a drink after me 2 years ago (apparently they do that sometimes for anyone, not very special). I had a really refreshing Yuzu (the salt really added depth to the tangy note) and an edible Pina Colada. All 5 of the drinks were really interesting.

2nd stop: Long Bar. Even though it is the birthplace of of the iconic Singapore Sling, they don't just do that well. We got to try 4 other different cocktails as well. The crowd favorite was definitely the Moodiques cocktail that's served in a lightbulb-shaped glass.

Here's me, with the Sling in hand. Do you know that they make about 100+ Slings a day?

And here's Zach, ambassador of Monkey's Shoulder whiskey who was leading the tour, trying out the Tiffing (and holding it the proper way).

3rd stop: Anti:Dote. Tom Hogan just won the Best Male Bartender of the Year award, so we are covered in terms of getting some award-winning drinks!

We had a lovely Cucumber cocktail, followed by a medicinal aperitif (Instapic here) to try.

Here's the gang, still looking pretty sober. 

Final stop, Tippling Club, which just made No. 36 on Asia's Top 50 Restaurant List! Congrats. I tried the Czeh the Monkey drink (from a lovely stranger) and it was absolutely delish. I would say that's probably my favorite drink of the night.

Here's Roman Foltan, who's guest starring at Tippling.

And finally, some of the buddies at Tippling. I had great fun thanks for FIJI Water (official water sponsor) and FoodNews PR. Don't miss out on all these bars and drinks! 4 more days left.
