SINGAPORE - From today (May 20) till June 30, those travelling through Changi Airport can enjoy three new cocktail treats at the DFS wines and spirits duplex in Terminal 3.
The complimentary drinks are specially created for the DFS Cocktail Festival, marking the start of a year-long celebration of the first anniversary of the two-storey store.
They are: Chop Chop Lah, a drink inspired by chicken rice; Shiok Date, which takes its cue from cheng tng; and Kiasu Kaya, featuring popular local flavours coconut and pandan.
These cocktails will be available daily at the bar on the second level of the duplex.
The bar set up by Raffles Hotel has been serving spirits and cocktails including the original Singapore Sling to travellers for free since the duplex opened in May last year.
During the cocktail festival, there will also be guest appearances by bartenders from popular local bars on Friday and Saturday evenings:
May 20-21: Brendon Khoo from 28 HongKong Street
May 27-28: Christyne Lee from Jigger & Pony
June 10-11: Philip Bischoff from Manhattan
June 17-18: Adam Eddy Bursik from The Library
June 24-25: Byron Tan from Smoke & Mirrors
They will each be presenting their own interpretation of a Singapore-inspired cocktail.
"The cocktail festival is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the very best of our local talent and pay homage to Singapore's unique culture. Travellers will be taken on a tantalising journey through the diverse and rich flavours of Singapore," said Wilcy Wong, DFS Group's managing director, Singapore and Indonesia.
