4 Uniquely Singaporean Cocktails You Have To Try

With Singapore Cocktail Week just around the corner - not that you ever needed an excuse for a drink (or ten) anyway - here are our top picks for uniquely Singaporean cocktails that'll put even the renowned Singapore Sling to shame.

1. Kaya Toast cocktail from Bitters and Love

Bitters and Love transforms this local breakfast classic into a cocktail, incorporating kaya (coconut jam) into the cocktail with english breakfast tea, rum, peach liqueur, honey, fresh lemon juice, and egg white, yielding a refreshing yet titillatingly sweet concoction.

2. Pi Pa Gao cocktail from Ding Dong

Pi Pa Gao is a a chinese herbal cough syrup. Minty, smooth, and soothing. Add that to whisky, aged rum, calamansi, and bitters, and you get an edgy and arguably healthy cocktail.

3. Bandung shots from Hopscotch

Shots, shots, shots, shots! I'm talking Bandung (rose syrup sweetened with condensed milk) shots.

4. Mr. Bean from Jekyll and Hyde

If you've never tried Lao Ban soya beancurd (they've got stalls islandwide; the original one is sat at Old Airport Food Centre), try it! Silky smooth and mouth-wateringly sweet. Then, try Jekyll and Hyde's Mr Bean, a cocktail made with said dessert, kaya, butterscotch, frangelico, and vodka.
